Green November (self-released)

A pre-med student at Case Western Reserve University, 20-year-old singer-songwriter Jordan Genovese sounds more mature than you'd expect on her full-length debut. The album opens with the poppy "Maybe," a song you could imagine getting radio airplay alongside the likes of Avril Lavigne and Taylor Swift. Genovese has said she doesn't think she's the greatest singer, and her voice certainly lacks the kind of power of many of today's country/pop divas. She actually sounds a bit more confident when she talks (rather than sings) her way through a song. But she has a good ear for a pop hook. She also displays plenty of personality in spunky songs such as "Won't Lie No More," "Angel Song" and "I'm Not Sorry."

Jordan Genovese performs at 9 p.m. on Saturday, Nov. 23 at the Jolly Scholar.Foundry.

Lorine Chia performs with DJ Fugitive, Atari Jones, Kipp Stone, Creez Mob, R the Czar, Aphiniti, Tae Fresh, Chris Black and Thurm at 8 p.m. on Friday, Oct. 25, at the Foundry.
