Aurora OUT NOW
Parliamentary Awards Jazz Vocalist of the Year 2019, Zoe Gilby, “Aurora” album is out now
Inspired by the instrumental compositions of award winning, Grammy nominated U.S trumpeter Tom Harrell.
“This is a brand new album of material and we are so excited to be augmenting the exciting instrumental compositions of US trumpet player and composer Tom Harrell with my own lyrics. As a songwriter, I have always composed the melody and the lyrics myself. This however, is an entirely different beast, and a one I have loved rising to the challenge of. I’ve loved illustrating Tom’s music further with my own lyrics, absorbing his intricate ideas, his serene delivery and portraying it sensitively with my own, awesome musicians, who help bring my words and these compositions to life.”
Released on compact disc and digital download
