jazzman2017 Love this album! She sings, scats, loops and plays trombone! The band delivers the goods too. New Age sounds similar to an Esperanza Spalding song in its delivery and that ain't a bad thing. I imagine Freddie Hubbard performing Brazen Dream. Hold On is killer! The album has a very classic Jazz vibe with a contemporary flare. Wish there was a physical CD or better yet vinyl. I will burn the WAV files and enjoy it in the car and my stereo at home. Thank you Bandcamp! Favorite track: Brazen Dream.

Track Name: New Age
Every day I wake up , bright and early morning
Ready to face the battles that have dawned in
And though there will be battles - there is always trouble-
I'm ready to sow the seeds of my redemption
I'm looking to discover, reach into my soul now -
Where do I go, which way will find me solace?
So everyday I wander out into the new world
Hoping my soul will delve into the new age

Find your way to your own journey
Live with your ambitions
New age right before you
Full of Wonder
Track Name: Out Of This World
We've walked the earth
For over millions of miles
Through all we have evolved
Learnt of love and kindness, our fateful joy

Out of our dreams
Lives hopeto further unfold
Remain the symbol of truth
You can only find you, it's for you to own

Out of this world, we learn, we dance, we love
Out of this world , we gain, we strive to live
Out of this world, we learn, we dance, we love
Out of this wolrd, we gain to give unconditionally
Track Name: Through The Years
Through The Years
The sound of love and music
Come and go , some faces of some people we know

Who brings a haunting melody, that plays a simple song?
Who lives , to bring the thrill of sound, that lives and lingers on?
The sounds that we hear, when they end
Heavens are near
A muted trumped, or a soulful saxophone , A wail
A singer's home
Track Name: Hold On
Hush now, no need to worry
Look inside yourself , realise your vision
Hush now, don't need to worry
You just look inside yourself
Realise your vision

Hold, hold on to your love
Don't let go , just hold on to your dreams
Hold , hold on to your love
Oh let go, don't hold on to your fears
