Album: Helena Jesel, Sweet Sticky Fix (World6)

Jesele's grandparents might well have listened to the kind of music their granddaughter is now pastiching for a living: big, beehived, R&B-derived pop, falling over its own instrumentation, drama and reverberant atmos, but staying staunchly upright in its focus on its market.

This is high-end genre stuff and it's reasonably enjoyable. Jesele has a whispery little voice which may or may not "seduce" you. Not to be confused, in any circs, with Amy.
