Isn't She 'Lovely?' Brand New Amel Larrieux

From The Cocoa Lounge
Singer, Amel Larrieux
(Amel Larrieux releases Lovely Standards.)

In certain circles, the name Amel Larrieux is either followed or preceded by three words: "I love her." Her voice is pure air. She's Neo-Soul music's resident chameleon; which has been her greatest legacy as well as a slight detriment. Refusing to fit into one particular box may have cost her mainstream success over the years, but is exactly why hardcore fans like us keep coming back for more.

Her newest project, released just this week, Lovely Standards, represents her grand entrance into the jazz arena. Larrieux takes a gentle approach to popular and rare standards; with a light and breathy vocal that soars. With a take on Nina Simone's Wild Is The Wind, that would impress the High Priestess of Soul herself, Amel Larrieux takes on a songbook of giants note-for-note, and simply whispers them to sleep.

Here's one of our favorite Amel Larrieux throwbacks: The video, Get Up!

The last album i got of Amel was Bravebird. I thought she may have left music for a little while but it looks like she's just on a smaller label. Good thing you posted this becuase i had no clue she put out a new cd!
