This Friday I will on my to Ireland to interview bands. So today we will treat you to a classic Music FridayLive! with Irene Diaz and Karen Dezelle. There will be no show April 18.

Irene Diaz opens in Segment 1.  She is a twenty-six-year-old, LA –based singer- songwriter trained in classical piano and steeped in blues and jazz.  Inspired by artists such as Nina Simone, Ella , Fiona Apple,  with tones reminiscent of Eva Cassidy Irene just released her debut EP, I Love You Madly.   We will play cuts from it, including the stunning single, “Crazy Love” which will haunt your mind and hypnotize your ears in a riptide of emotion.    

In segment 2,  singer-songwriter Karen Dezelle combines honest narratives with soft, soothing vocals, creating vulnerability with wide appeal.  Karen has lived all over the world and it shows in her deft blending of beats and melodies. Inspired by artists such as Jewel and Joni Mitchell, Karen', emotionally-complex lyrics are offset by a minimalist song structure and  innocent vocals in a moving sound, both calming and exciting.
