It's nice enough, I could imagine Lisa Stansfield singing it.

Sounds like Fleetwood Mac to me, can't hear much soul content just pleasant-ish radio-friendly MOR sounds

 

Agreed ; very Ken Bruce. 

 

When it gets to the 70s sound the line gets pretty thin between MOR and soul

I heard it too. Thought it started well, but got a bit too "Loveboat" for me!

I don't think it's particularly soulful either, maybe the arrangement shakes hands with a 7Ts sort of sound, but doesn't retain much of it's DNA, so all in all, I wouldn't turn it off it came on the radio, think that's the best I can say.

Hmmmm…I struggle with Rumer (crap stage name as well) - she seemed to hop from genre to genre until one hit paydirt.

 

I don't think she's particularly 'authentic'… if her first 'indie' band had sold any records she'd be doing that instead….not for me I'm afraid.
