Keyondra Lockett
IndieBlu Music (release date: July 22, 2022)

By Robert M. Marovich

With a touch of a Jamaican patois, Keyondra Lockett gleefully disrespects the devil on “Liar.”

Put on the armor of God and the “Holy Ghost fire,” Lockett sings, and nothing the devil can throw at you will hit its target. These include shots fired, lying haters, and general stress.

The penetrating electronica that surrounds Lockett all but leaps out of the speakers. It’s an attention-grabbing single from an original member of Zie’l, whom JGM first heard singing a cappella at the 2006 Gospel Music Workshop of America.

“Liar” is from Lockett’s forthcoming album, Cornerstone, scheduled for release tomorrow, September 2, 2022.
