Francesca Beghe - Francesca Beghe (1991)

Here is another case of a good and unique singer who for some reason just didn't click with the public despite good songs and good publicity. Francesca Beghe was kicking around New York City, performing and honing her singing and songwriting skills, when in 1987, Joe Cocker chose to record her song "Trust In Me". This led to a major label deal and her debut album. It was co-produced by one of Joe's producers Charlie Midnight (who has also recently worked with Hilary Duff). The music is therefore pop rock, with a bluesy tint, very much like Taylor Dayne's rockier moments. Francesca's voice is unique and strong, and the songwriting is good. She released "Heaven Knows" as her first single, though it didn't chart, and neither did her second, "Something About Your Touch". She also included her own version of "Trust In Me" on her album. She worked on a follow up with Alanis Morissette and Wilson Phillips producer Glen Ballard, but label turmoils prevented it from being released. Luckily she finally resurfaced a couple years ago with a new independently released album, Dreamworld, which you can buy from CD Baby should you like what you hear here.
