It isn’t every day that an artist gives the perfect description of his or her music right in the middle of one of the artist’s own songs. Burbank singer-songwriter Maria Cozette is not your everyday artist, though. Cozette sums up “Born Ready,” her debut album, perfectly in “Just Right,” the second track of the disc: “If you want that feel-good pop, well here it is.”
Armenian American Cozette has been performing since 5, and her experience shows. “Born Ready” boasts tracks featuring a soulful blend of Top 40 pop, R&B and European-influenced dance beats. It is rare that a debut album is put together so completely — and defines an artist so clearly — as this one.
The party gets started right away with the first song. With a smooth groove and techno-influenced sound, “Electronic Love” gets listeners ready to have fun. The second track, “Just Right,” continues to deliver with a heavy beat and catchy chorus, and could easily be a hit in clubs across the country.
