Release: 12th November 2020
Many singers profess to being natural storytellers, but few can also claim to be published authors.
Australian jazz singer Connie Lansberg showcases these two areas of her creative output this November, with the release of the album Tsera’s Gift, alongside a novel of the same name.
The record is an infectious and lilting collection of songs, performed by some of Melbourne’s leading musicians.
A longstanding fixture on the Australian jazz scene, Connie’s songs – at various points evoking Blossom Dearie, Madeleine Peyroux and Carol King – brim with elegantly expressive melodies, and poetic lyrics.
“As an author, I love the long-form, but as a songwriter there’s nothing more thrilling than summing up the difficult, the wonderful, the terrifying and exhilarating feeling of falling in or out of love in a 4-minute soliloquy accompanied by these talented musicians.”
Tsera’s Gift gracefully walks that fine line between accessibility and sophistication, jazz and pop, resulting in an album that mixes crystalline melodies with richly emotive sentiments.
“Poised, beautiful and stylishly attired Connie Lansberg commands her audience’s attention from the first note” – PBS Jazz Radio
