Lady Jaye's FLUX and Voices in Your Head's LIGHTS were chosen as 2 of 15 albums of RARB's Picks of the Year for 2016! I'm honored for two projects so close to my heart to see this kind of reception.
Leigh Holmes Foster says about FLUX, "Whatever you do, don't miss out on the music that Lady Jaye is making. To me, this album stands out by far as the most real from the works I reviewed in 2016. There's so much honesty in Lady Jaye's music, and it makes for powerful listening."
Robert Dietz says about LIGHTS, "One of my all-around favorite collegiate albums that I've ever reviewed. Inventive arranging anchors top-notch solo performances, with fantastic original songs to take it over the top!"
AND, Run for Cover's Gold was chosen as the Single of the Year. "Run for Cover has delivered our choice for Single of the Year with its version of the Adventure Club (ft. Yuna) EDM track Gold. The arrangement by Ahon Sarkar is intriguing and complex, creating a song that is full of creativity and movement. What started out as an experiment for Sarkar developed into an amalgam of talent, production and collaboration once it went into the studio. Initially there was some concern in choosing a group with a guest soloist as Single of the Year. But Kari Wei's solo made us forget all about that by living inside this song and evoking all of the emotion of the original. The track is indeed the gold standard of a cappella for 2016."
Many congratulations and thanks to my many collaborators in 2016 - we made some fantastic music together. Here's to more in 2017!
