Deau Eyes is Ali Thibodeau, Richmond, Virginia born and raised singer, songwriter, actress, choreographer, nanny, truck driver, waitress, construction worker, tour manager, baker, bartender, painter, Harry Potter World witch, tap dancing elf, camp counselor, journalist, Soul Cycle receptionist, puppeteer, open mic host, saleswoman, team building expert, free sample distributor, box office attendant, personal assistant, Zumba instructor, and dog walker. Her debut album Let It Leave was recorded in January of 2018 at Trace Horse Studios in Nashville, TN.

The songs celebrate the joys and complications of a liminal life- balancing between freedom and stability, falling into and out of love, and trusting yourself through the noise of other people's expectations.

There was not then & there is not now a more profound interpreter of the piano sonatas of Ludwig van Beethoven than Artur Schnabel, & his 1930s recordings of them are now as they have always been & as they will always be the greatest recordings of the works ever made. Schnabel’s Waldstein Sonata is pure joy, his Appassionata is dark despair, & his Sonata in E minor is complete consolation. Schnabel’s Sonata in E major is radiant bliss, his Sonata in A flat is luminous ecstasy, & his Sonata in C minor is numinous spirituality. Generations of critics have carped at Schnabel’s technique &, in truth, he does lack the technique to play the closing movement of the Appassionata at tempo. But generations of listeners have heard Schnabel’s deep soul & his sublime musicianship & have therefore cheerfully disregarded any critical quibbles in gratitude for Schnabel’s transcendent performances. EMI’s remastering of the 1930s monaural originals is obviously antique but nevertheless clear enough to let the lucid light of Schnabel’s performances shine through. Anyone who values their immortal soul should listen to these recordings.

Foundation singer Owen Gray, also known as Owen Grey, is credited as Jamaica’s first home-grown singing star as he was the first singer on the island to sing in a style that wasn’t mento, calypso or jazz. His work spans the R&B, ska, rocksteady, and reggae eras of Jamaican music, but although he had a notable amount of hits under his belt and a lot of his recordings were of astonishing quality, the man was never highly regarded and didn’t receive the recognition he truly deserved. Perhaps the reason for this might have been his choice of material and direction that hasn’t always felt sincere.

With its first of two Genuin Aufnahmen, the Trio Boccherini proves that Beethoven's String Trios are more than technical exercises by the composer along the way to writing quartets. Opus 9 is a rarely recorded and performed early work by the master, and yet they already reveal Beethoven in his entirety, as it were, in a tonally condensed form. The ensemble, comprising of members from three different continents, bring together diverse aspects of their musical experiences, culminating in this colorful yet unified interpretation.
