Tenille Townes is a country-music outsider, and her major-label debut is better for it. Like fellow Canadian Shania Twain, Townes isn’t afraid to embrace pop. The shimmering “Holding Out for the One” sounds like a Robyn song, while “White Horse”—all needling guitar and spirited handclaps—channels Duffy; both are primed for a crossover. “Lighthouse” (as in, “I’ll be your lighthouse”) and “Jersey on the Wall (I’m Just Asking)”—about a high-school star athlete killed in a car crash and memorialized via a jersey hanging on a gym wall—are tailor made for a heart-tugging TV commercial. Townes’ voice is the star here: tender but with jazz-siren depth, full of charming quirks and not trying to be traditionally pretty. She can party (the uplifting “Come as You Are”), do campfire twang (“Where You Are”) and be thought-provoking (breakout single “Somebody’s Daughter” imagines how homeless girls got that way). And when, on “I Kept the Roses,” Townes goes retro—her funny-valentine voice soaring alongside Chet Atkins-style guitar like some old-timey radio transmission—she proves she can also surprise. – Shelly Ridenour
