You have to give Tammy Rogers credit. An in-demand Nashville session specialist, Rogers could easily make do playing fiddle behind the likes of past employers Emmylou Harris, Patty Loveless, and Trisha Yearwood. Not content to hover in the background, however, Rogers has forged a solo career built around her vocals (think Harris sans seasoning), compositions, and arrangements. It's the last that's her strong suit. Rogers's best effort remains 1995's mostly instrumental In the Red, a collaboration with fellow session player and Dead Reckoning Records regular Dan Heffington. As with that off-center country sleeper, Speed of Love is rife with tasty, subtle arrangements. Check out the Magical Mystery Tour-like strings that juice up "Rescue Me" or "How Can I Lose," an uptempo outing that's the perfect synthesis of her alt-country past and more mainstream predilections. Less-than-stellar originals pop up here and there, and one suspects Rogers will be a more distinctive singer an album or two down the road. Still, Speed of Love is another impressive step by an intriguing country-folk comer. --Steven Stolder

""Going for a Drive" is a GREAT song - catchy and uplifting. And anyone that has seen the video for this song can testify to the fact that Rogers is not only very pretty, she is also a real cutie-pie. I just want to give her a big hug every time I see it!If her career doesn't take off, it will be a loss for the millions of music fans that should be enjoying her charming music."
