by elizabeth | November 1st, 2011

Well, shiver me timbers. November 1st is finally here! “Brainchildren” (Canopy Jazz), my debut album of original music, is now available! Woo hoo!

AOL premiered the album yesterday and it will be streaming in its entirety all week, along with other new releases…including The Beach Boys, Jethro Tull, and yes, Susan Boyle.

What people have been saying:

“every moment of this album has something to offer” – CMJ (College Music Journal)

“recommended if you like Regina Spektor and Norah Jones” – AOL

“one-of-a-kind jazzy pop tunes” – The Deli LA

“an enjoyable confection” – The Sun Chronicle

A little about the album:

Jazzy, poppy “Brainchildren” (November 1, 2011 – Canopy Jazz), tells stories real and imagined, outlining the similarities found in our experiences no matter where we reside. “Three” tells the story of a couple deciding to have a child, “Bicycle” reminds a child to enjoy his innocence while it lasts, and “Melting Snow” describes the feeling of rebirth after tragedy. Several songs relate tales of love gained or lost, and the album is rounded out with instrumentals inspired by insomnia, tacos, and a skipping stroll in Memphis. Recorded in Brooklyn with her working band in a single day, Brainchildren features Jason Domnarski on piano, Rob Jost (Saturday Night Live, Bjork) on bass and Robert Di Pietro (Norah Jones, Josh Rouse) on drums. Special guests include Kiku Collins (Beyonce), Jon Natchez (Beirut), and Mark Erelli (Josh Ritter).

    Hey Elizabeth! We’ve been enjoying our copy of the CD ever since it arrived in the mail. Favorite tracks are #3-7… if I were pressed to choose a first-fav I don’t think I could, but it might be a toss up between Eye for an Eye and Insomnia…. although…. Melting Snow is right up there as well. Looking forward to seeing you November 12.

  2. Wonderful! So glad you are enjoying it!
