It has been a few years since the first CD from San Diego-based singer-songwriter Laura Roppe. That first CD of Girl Like This is a solid release that has two sides- one that is country-flavored and one that is more folk-rock flavored. Now, Roppe has returned with a new CD that is just as solid; but this time, Roppe takes the time to explore many different genres of music to create her new release of I’m Still Here.
I’m Still Here from Laura Roppe begins with “Bail Yourself Out”. The rock-flavored track is an energetic song about being your own savior and making your own destiny.
“Heart inside Your Palm” is a love song. The track is about treating the one you love with respect, the way you would want to be treated.
The album continues with a bouncy track entitled “Little Stick of Dynamite”. The song is about someone who is ready to take off at any moment, to make the world know that she exists.
