darlenYa releases new album 'CURVES AHEAD'
June 1st marks the official release of darlenYa’s long awaited new album ‘CURVES AHEAD’. Like the many roads she’s traveled over the course of 1/2 her life, this one is a windy one. A road that while you’re sure it continues, each wind brings an unexpected turn of events, new challenges, tough lessons and communities of people doing amazing things.
'CURVES AHEAD' is yet another evolution bridging the gap between styles, sometimes within the same song. More than that, darlenYa takes you by the hand and on a journey through the enigmatic terrain that has been her teacher. It has sounds of New Orleans jazz, soul, funk, native american, ranchero, reggae, samba & calypso; there are chickens, waltzes, dramatic instrumentals, a zapatista song and a song for the water. It is an embodiment of her world.
* Seth Bernard (Earthwork Music) calls it “Unprecedented”
