It shows…the many emotions that the song can reveal - and the majesty of Carroll's voice. All About Jazz
She seems in some magical way to be made out of music. The Observer
So, you like Amy Winehouse, but want something jazzier? Liane Carroll fits the bill perfectly. The Sunday Times
Awarded 'Best British Vocalist' on more than one occasion, singer Liane Carroll has a 'deeply soulful' voice and a fearless approach to singing.
Seaside is a mix of original songs and covers broadly following a seashore theme, with sterling accompaniment comprising piano trio, guitar and brass.
Liane brings a refreshing approach to Billie Holiday's 'I Cover The Waterfront', Kurt Weill's 'My Ship' and Nina Simone's 'Wild is the Wind', plus 'Almost Like Being In Love' - famous as the closing track to the blockbuster hit Groundhog Day.
The title song, 'Seaside', was specially written for Liane by Joe Stilgoe which sees the singer return Liane's favour of guesting on his cover of Brian Wilson's 'I Just Wasn't Made For These Times' from his latest album 'New Songs For Old Souls'.
The album reunites Liane with multi-GRAMMY nominated producer and trumpeter James McMillan who worked on her previous two albums.
Liane's rhythm section comprises Malcolm Edmonstone (piano), Mark Edwards (piano), Ian Thomas (drums) and Steve Pearce (bass) with guest musicians Rob Luft (guitar) and Andy Wood (brass).
