Canadian treasure Alfie Zappacosta has released his 16th album “Saved” to rave reviews and critical acclaim. The iconic singer, songwriter and producer with the rich soaring voice that has graced the airways for 5 decades has, like a fine wine, gotten better with age. The album “Saved” is a new level of performance for an already stellar singer.
This latest effort contains beautiful, romantic ballads like “ Here In My Heart “, the moving “Always Near,” and the beautiful “Unspoken.” Changing it up is the gospel inspired title track“Saved,” and the jazz influenced “Had Enough.”
The mixture of styles and feels and vocal tones on the album show all the different layers Alfie has brought to his vocal repertoire through the years. In Alfie’s words, “I’m a writer and I like to write as many different kinds of songs as I can. Once upon a time, record labels would want you to have a certain style so they knew how to market you, but now I can do anything I want.”
