Overview: Truly a contemporary artist, Jeanne Newhall draws from many musical currents. A classically trained pianist who grew up with Mozart, Bartok and Bach as well as rock 'n' roll, folk and pop, her rich, warm vocals and the sophisticated nuances of her piano and arrangements welcome listeners into a shimmering world of words and music.
WILD BLUE signals new directions for the Los Angeles-based artist, who describes the piano as a "percussion instrument," confesses to a "fetish for guitars" and grew up watching sunsets in the Arizona skies. "For me–whether I'm singing or playing or composing–music is about life. It's about living up to my full potential as an artist. It's about evolution. I don't know whether I've taken a hard right or a hard left on WILD BLUE," she says, "but I've found a new freedom with this album." Artist Site
