A singer-songwriter from Minnesota, Andriana Lehr describes herself as carrying “song in her spirit”, who mixes “her classical vibrato, headstrong affinity for female alt-queens, and a Graceland-style twang.” While her folk-pop-country mix is reminiscent of Brandi Carlile, Shawn Colvin, and the like, Lehr has a ways to go to develop her sound.

The main issue with some of the tracks is pacing. Some songs just plod along, which is mainly due to a lack of dynamic instrumentation. Track “True Colors”, which is already in a slower tempo, has basically a stagnant drumming pattern throughout the entire song with forgettable guitar. “Wish You Well”, despite its universal message of wanting good for someone else, suffers from the same problem. “Hold On Strong” sounds perfectly suited for the background of a cheesy scene in a romantic comedy – capable of pulling the heartstrings if paired with images and actors, but not really capable of evoking emotion by itself.

However, Try To Be True is not without its strengths. Lehr’s real forte is when she pursues a more bluesy, darker sound. In weaker tracks, her voice just flits around sounding pretty but bland. But when she uses her lower register, great things can happen. “Bad Reception” is a fitting showcase for her voice, and the drums serve to move the pace along rather than drag it down. Describing the pain of a breakup is a frequent theme in music, but the lyrics (“Can’t hear you and know you can’t hear me”) are cleverly heartwrenching.

By far the best track is “Try To Be True.” From the very opening, acoustic guitar with electric guitar butting in, Lehr breaks through with her lower register singing soulfully about how “faithfulness has never come too easily.” But the biggest and best surprise is in the chorus, when she passionately shouts to the heavens about how she “gave up on true love.” It’s bluesy and furious, the singing is more ambitious, and the guitar and drums actually add to the song.

The problem with this being the best track is that it sounds so drastically out of place with virtually the rest of the album. Lehr has a powerful voice, but on the majority of the tracks, it sounds bland and unmemorable. The instrumentation, too, suffers from cheesiness at times. If Lehr follows the example of “Try To Be True”, then her future endeavors may prove to be more impressive.
