This Contemporary Vocal/Guitar Duo Offers Acoustic Storytelling at Its Best
“Listen and you’ll hear an artist who knows how to make a song her own just as
surely as she knows how to make a tune swing.” Billboard Magazine
On Friday, July 24, 2015, the jazz/soul vocalist Nicole Henry and guitarist/producer James Bryan will release their first ever duo project, Summer Sessions EP on Banister Records. Recorded live in The Chocolate Factory Studio in London with just voice and acoustic guitar, Summer Sessions captures the thrill and intimacy of the stripped-down setting. At times sultry and uplifting, the duo brings out the joy, longing and comfort in the stories of every track. Nicole Henry’s sweet yet powerful vocals are complimented perfectly by James Bryan’s rhythmic and creative guitar virtuosity, nuanced with gentle arpeggios and contrapuntal phrasing. The 8-song EP, totaling 31 minutes of originals and cover songs ranging from pop, rock and jazz, will be distributed by Magenta/eOne and available for download on all digital platforms.
