Sass Jordan - From Dusk Till DawnThe vivacious judge on Canadian Idol is also one of Canada’s brightest pop stars, a charismatic performer blessed with a distinctive, blues-tinged voice (she once played Janis Joplin off-Broadway). The Montreal native’s latest CD, produced by her guitarist-husband, Derek Sharp, perfectly showcases her Joplin-esque vocals, especially on rockers like “What I Need” and “Stronger” and the ballads “Awake” and “Lonely.” Steeped in classic ’70s sounds, the album also features Sass’ rootsy cover of the Eagles hit “Ol’ 55.”
