Seattle-based singer/songwriter Choklate is proof that the Pacific Northwest can put out soul music that's as strong as its coffee.  Working mostly with hip-hop producer Vitamin D, Choklate's debut album is a groove-filled neo-soul disc that sounds a bit like a grittier Conya Doss.  Her cool delivery works well on strong, mostly mid-tempo compositions like "Never Change," "Whenever," "Incredible" and the bluesy gem "What's About to Go Down."  In a year that has already introduced us to a new generation of talented female soul singers, Choklate is a tasty addition.
