Singer Mara Hruby recently released her debut recording, From Her Eyes, a collection of covers originally recorded by her favorite male artists. The 20-year-old singer, who describes her sultry sound as a "melodic melting pot," reworks tracks from the Roots, Andre 3000, Mos Def, D'Angelo and Bob Marley.

The genre-blending LP features Hruby's effortless vocals over R&B, reggae and hip-hop instrumentals. Download Hruby's album here for free.
