Singer Cathy Segal-Garcia’s Social Anthems, Volume 1 is a meeting place for songs that speak to challenges of any time but feel especially resonant in the current world climate. The singer delivers each song soulfully and with an emotional depth all her own. Featured are compositions by Billy Joel, Steve Winwood, Chet Powers, Marvin Gaye, Peter Gabriel and Thomas Newton. Segal-Garcia also co-wrote one of the album’s contemplative tracks with pianist Josh Nelson who also arranged a portion of the album. Guitarist Anthony Wilson arranged the other selections. Those two great musicians are joined by Edwin Livingston on bass and Lorca Hart on drums. Vocalists Mon David and Paul Jost make appearances on two of the recording’s tunes. This is another outstanding production by a wonderful musical talent.
