An artist gifted with a unique voice and a pioneering sound that has attracted comparisons with Ray Charles, Kate Bush, Rachelle Ferrell, Carole King, Joni Mitchell, Nina Simone, Bill Evans and Horace Silver. She writes and sings intensely personal songs - lush landscapes of love, loss, passion and inspiration, with rich, soulful vocal stylings and prodigiously funky, groove-ridden command of the piano. Her music has so far earned her admiration from notable UK jazz luminaries, including Juliet Kelly, Tony Kofi and Trevor Watkis. A compelling lyricist as well as singer/instrumentalist, at home in varying categories, from Nu-jazz to blues, soul and pop, Faye Patton represents a formidable new talent that defies musical boundaries.
An album worth waiting for – 13 all original, intimate, yet highly polished Nu Jazz songs by a pioneering singer-songwriter. A landscape of soulful melody, bitter-sweet funk, dreamy harmony and dark, bluesey magic. Talented guest musicians contribute a range of hues, with treacle-toned flugelhorn, strings, flutes, latin percussion, and the artist herself on displaying an enjoyable command of guitar, piano and keyboards. Not to mention a shimmering, hypnotic vocal register that demands your attention. A joyful creation, wrought in the company of good friends, old and new – this is a classic Faye Patton recording to add to your collection.
