Editors’ Notes It’s one thing to be able to sing soul, it’s another to write convincingly in a style that developed thousands of miles from your home. And yet for her debut album—recorded in Texas with the support of a crack team of musicians—Finnish blues belter Ina Forsman has done precisely that, graduating from singing covers in a sultry voice to co-writing her own standards, taking in New Orleans R&B (“Hanging Loose”), Stax soul (“No Room for Love”), and slow blues (“Now You Want Me Back”).
