SASHSA DOBSON (RECORD RELEASE)
Those in the know might do a double take when they hear the snaky electric guitars, swirling organ and slinky beats framing Sasha Dobson's diamond voice on her new album, Aquarius. Previously revered as an A list jazz chanteuse, Dobson has completed a transformation from the smoky ballads of her past to emerge a fully-realized modern singer/songwriter with a raw, visceral sound all her own. Between her longstanding association with Norah Jones and the high regard in which she's held in the NYC music community, Dobson is poised for a 2013 breakout on the strength ofAquarius. The album's 11 tracks, produced by Joel Hamilton (Tom Waits, Sparklehorse, Marc Ribot), show Dobson's musical vision equaling that of acclaimed contemporary female artists, including Brandi Carlile, Jolie Holland and Lissie.
