    The City of Brotherly Love continues to be a wellspring of neo-soul talent. Another artist moving from Philadelphia to the national stage is singer Vivian Green, who co-wrote most of her debut A LOVE STORY and subsequently wowed audiences as an opening act for Maxwell's tour. Weaned on a steady diet of jazz and R&B, Green takes a laid-back approach that makes her a natural balladeer, and uses the fertile field of relationships--failed and otherwise--as a rich source of material. Whether she's questioning the erratic quality of a romantic union ("Emotional Rollercoaster"), resigning herself to a broken romance over a bed of cocktail lounge piano and trumpet ("No Sittin' By The Phone"), or defiantly questioning a lover's unrealistic demands ("Superwoman"), Green displays a sophistication that continually belies her young age. Her forays into more contemporary nuances like slightly dance-flavored beats on the captivating "Wishful Thinking" further ensures Vivian Green's place alongside fellow Philly denizens Jill Scott and Erykah Badu.
