The debut EP by Los Angeles-based singer-songwriter Ani Minasian, Mercedes Emerging features 3 uptempo original songs. "[Ani] Minasian exudes a husky authority and confident sex appeal that reminds some of us of Nikka Costa," hail the editors of Music Connection magazine in its 4/28/03 issue. On her debut EP, "she deftly injects a contemporary appeal into her material" and "drives it home with an assured hand and voice." Her "direct lyrics...connect perfectly."
