Fefe Dobson is often compared to Avril Lavigne because she's a Canadian singer who belts out pop rock hits - she's even been dubbed the Afro Avril! However, Canada's latest punk princess, who shines on her self-titled debut album, Fefe Dobson, has her own unique style. Her first track is called Stupid Little Love Song, but Fefe proves her CD is much more than that.
Fefe Dobson - Rockin' With a Mellow Vibe
Fefe has joined the guitar rock chick movement that includes Avril, Alanis Morissette, and Amy Lee of Evanescence. Her songs usually start out mellow and then pick up with an edgy rock beat. Hit tracks such as Take Me Away and Everything, which was featured on The Perfect Score soundtrack, have made Fefe a huge success in North America. Other notable songs on the album are Rock It Til You Drop It, Revolution Song, and Kiss Me Fool, which all have a hard rock feel.
Fefe Dobson - Angst-Ridden Teen
Fefe is mature beyond her 19 years, and it shows in her music. She reveals her emotions through her songs and lyrics; unfortunately, most of these emotions are anger over guys and frustration over failed relationships. Fefe's in-your-face music gives off a bitter vibe, especially in Unforgiven, which is directed at her absentee father. Although Fefe struggles with teenage angst, she knows one thing - she just wants to rock.
Fefe Dobson - Final Verdict
Fefe's album is a breath of fresh rock. Don't think of her as just another rocker chick because she has the potential to make it big world-wide. Plus, she definitely deserves props for writing all of her own songs (with a little help from producer Jay Levine). Her first single, Take Me Away, proves that her talent will certainly take her far.
