Opening with the brilliant 'Riptide' that impressed me on first listen and solidified Emma Stevens as a major pop contender comes her debut album 'Enchanted'.

Emma's infectious and cheery personality is blended with tremendous beats and uplifting instrumentals, and she has a knack of making you think a song is over before kicking in again with her great voice.

'Sunflower' shows her more tender and delicate side, with minimal but effective production, really leaving her vocals to shine through.

She's a musician who puts her heart and soul into her work, and it shows.

She touches on subjects that would be hard for most people to talk about - let alone sing - and manages to add a groovy twist to them.

There's definitely a gap for somebody like Emma in the market, and I hope she's given the chance she deserves to make it all the way to the top.

The album title is perfect, because her voice should enchant any listener within minutes.

'Enchanted' is released December 2.
