Gray’s a soulful changeling, bounding from gritty urban funk to polished R&B and tumescent Prince-ly come ons. And the L.A. based singer shows how to use her versatile voice to project the album’s ever changing moods. But she’s young yet, and her debut, On How Life Is, seems a bit unfocused — like the sound of someone trying on different styles for size, and never quite settling on anything.
