It’s Mardi Gras, which means it’s time to party! And, in a happy coincidence, the eponymous debut CD from DUCHESS (the vocal trio I’m in with my friends Amy Cervini and Melissa Stylianou) is released TODAY on Anzic Records! We’re so excited to share our album with you, which DownBeat Magazine described as “smile inducing…a vocal dynamo.”
So, what are you waiting for? Visit the Anzic Records store and purchase a hard copy or digital download of our CD. Or, if you prefer, you can certainly get DUCHESS on iTunes! Hey, if Amazon is more your thing, we’re on there, too! Whatever you do, be sure to order your copy of DUCHESS today! Then, make your reservation for our CD release show at the Jazz Standard on March 3. There will be hijinks. There will be harmony. It’s the hottest ticket in town, and we can’t wait to see you there!
It was just last November that producer/arranger/label head/Amy’s husband, Oded Lev-Ari, suggested that the three of us team up for an evening of harmony and hijinks at NYC’s 55 bar. We’ve covered a lot of ground since that first gig: we traveled to Oklahoma’s Route 66 with CowBop last summer and autumn took us to New Orleans where we were part of a Boswell Sisters tribute. We shared the stage with the likes of Janis Siegel, Matt Wilson, Jane Monheit, Vince Giordano, and Gene Bertoncini. We hosted the Birdland Jazz Party and helmed a three-month residency at the 55 bar. We’ve even picked up ukeleles and a melodica (not to mention kazoos!) from time to time. The fun quotient has been through the roof, and there are some incredibly exciting things in store in the months ahead. Stay in the loop by joining our mailing list, and thanks for supporting girl-on-girl harmony!
