about

Brenda Earle Stokes is a rare jazz artist with a true command of both the piano and the voice. As a follow-up to her critically acclaimed 2014 studio album Right About Now, Stokes sought to challenge herself to dig deep and share the full scope of her talents in the most intimate setting possible. In her latest album Solo Sessions Volume 1, Brenda explores the rarely- recorded format of solo piano/voice, showcasing her mesmerizing fluidity as both singer and pianist. Recorded in a single four-hour session in her home- town of Sarnia, Ontario, Canada, Brenda explores a wide spectrum of material, including jazz standards, original compositions and seldom-heard compositions by George Shearing and Steve Swallow. She rounds out the recording with lush jazz arrangements of songs recorded by k.d. lang, Michael McDonald and Huey Lewis, showing the full range of her musical curiosities.

Track Name: The Consequences of Falling
Are you breathing what I'm breathing?
Are your wishes the same as mine?
Are you needing what I'm needing?
I'm waiting for a sign

My hands tremble, my heart aches
Is it you calling?
Is it you calling?
If I'm alone in this I don't think I can face

The consequences of falling

Are you thinking what I'm thinking?
Does your pulse quicken like mine?
Are you dreaming what I'm dreaming?
I can't read your mind

One step towards you
Two steps back
Feels like I'm crawling
Feels like I'm crawling
If I'm alone in this I don't think I can face

The consequences of falling
