After several albums tinted with soul and blues, Robin McKelle had chosen, in 2018 with "Melodic Canvas", to return to a more acoustic aesthetic and rather minimalist, usually accompanied by a trio piano, bass, drums. Her new album "Alterations" to appear in the first quarter of 2020 is a collection of "cover songs" written by women songwriters who have marked the history of popular music. By choosing this unusual context, Robin finds herself giving new life to these occasions by bringing them a jazz atmosphere, cozy, intimate and delicate. Hailed for her powerful and expressive contralto voice and her performance qualities, especially in the rhythm'n'blues where her Soul influences (Nina Simone, Gladys Knight, Aretha Franklin) stood out ... We discover her here in a register more personal, sensitive and nuanced, but still soulful.
New album "Alterations" on February 14 2020
