Following her previously released single “Where Were You,” composer and singer/songwriter Deborah Thurlow will now host a CD release event for her latest CD, Collage, at the Arthur Seelen Theatre (downstairs from the Drama Book Shop) in NYC on October 1, 2013, from 7:00 to 9:00 pm. A departure from her previous releases of modern classical/jazz music, Collage is a collection of twelve original Adult/Contemporary songs that are seductively engrossing and inspiring. Accompanying Deborah at the event will be popular pianist Russell Daisey and Collage CDs will be offered at a "CD Party Special” price of $10.00.
As Ian Wagstaff commented in Horn Magazine, “. . . combine the Dalai Lama with Berlioz, throw in some Hebraic influence . . . Deborah Thurlow uses an eclectic mix of instruments, from the shofar to the Tibetan singing bowl, . . . [with] a strong electronic influence.” And now with the same exploratory spirit and creativity Deborah is branching out in yet another direction and expressing another side of her musical personality. Along with her soulful vocals and engaging songwriting skills Collage features seamless performances by Russell Daisey on piano, Loren Daniels on piano & organ, the acoustic guitar of Vincent Downes, Brian Princing on electric guitar, Alex Gressel on upright & electric bass, and the drums of Andrea Valentini. Collage is yet another of Deborah’s infectious stylistic excursions that expands the trajectory of her expressive musical vision and is sure to wet the appetites of her listeners for more.
