What a time to have an episode of "Hybrid Jazz" - it's the beginning of Autumn, the start of Libra, it's Yom Kippur, and the Pope is in the USA :) How do we celebrate? HALIE LOREN!
This Alaskan-born award-winner has had quite a journey - and she is still so young! She made her performing debut at 10, her family moved to Oregon three years later - and she won accolades for her songwriting when she was still a TEEN!
Halie also had the maturity to live in Nashville for a time, soaking up the music wisdom of the city and learning the ropes of the business - before she headed back to Oregon for continued education. She has never STOPPED pursuing her education, in terms of perfecting her craft. Already blessed with a unique and distinctive way of interpretation, Halie is also extraordinarily smart. She knew early in her career that overseas audiences embraced her, so she has made it a point to release her music there first - the USA is catching up!
Her debut in 2006 generated MUCH interest. Her sophomore project, "They Oughtta Write a Song" won an Just Plan Folks (Independent) Award for Best Jazz Vocal. And it was the second-highest selling album in Japan. Halie's name is actually known all over the world - because of smart distribution and the attraction of sophisticated audiences to a true talent. When you hear "Butterfly Blue", you'll know HOW true :)
Amy Shook is a joyful "last minute" guest - and it's because of one very special reason. She is a major component of Diva Jazz - in trio - the musical unit for the Maurice Hines production of "Tappin' Thru Life!" They're at the Delaware Theatre Company in Wilmington and it's BUZZING! Amy has played the White House twice, so you KNOW ;) Bass Goddess join us in the third hour - see you in Chat!
