If you were lucky enough to catch the husband/wife duo “Birds of Chicago” at the Regina Folk Festival in 2015, you may have had the pleasure of hearing Allison Russell with her husband JT Nero. Born and raised on Montreal, music saved Allison as she suffered from a traumatic childhood of abuse. Since the duo group with her husband, she has also been part of the folk supergroup “Our Native Daughters” along with Rhiannon Giddens. “Outside Child” is her first solo album and is a rather therapeutic effort considering her past and where she has come since then. The album would be classified in the Folk/Americana genre and features the soulful vocals of this talented multi-instrumentalist. You can find it on Tidal here: https://tidal.com/browse/album/184088038
If you're a fan of piano jazz trios, look no further than the Søren Bebe Trio. Søren Bebe leads this trio in a style that is very reminiscent of European jazz stars such as Tord Gustavsen (a personal favourite for many years) and the late Esbjörn Svensson. All the albums are worth your consideration as they not only feature great music, but are also superbly recorded. You can find them at https://sorenbebe.bandcamp.com/ with the albums available in CD quality or 24/96 FLAC. A few are available for your enjoyment on TIDAL, but these albums are definitely worth owning. Enjoy!
