Brookyln, NY-based singer Andrea Wolper has a warm, earthy, slightly-bluesy voice that can not be ignored. Her latest recording, Parallel Lives is the kind of music that you might hear while out somewhere, and find yourself asking, “Who is that?” The album is Wolper’s take on tunes, mostly by other composers, like Hoagy Carmichael, Joni Mitchell, Buffy Saint Marie and Richard Rodgers. It’s a pretty diverse menu, but she manages it all quite well. The project features Kris Davis on piano, Michael Howell on guitar, Ken Filiano on bass and Michael Thompson on drums. This is one worth checking out.
