paz lenchantin

"In 2006 Paz Lenchantin came out with her second solo release “Songs for Luci” which is dedicated to her brother Luciano Lenchantin who sadly passed away in 2003.
Recorded in Louisville, Kentucky “Songs for Luci” is a very short, but sweet album clocking in at 18 minutes and 4 seconds and has a lot to offer the listener in its short playtime. “Songs for Luci” is a very touching album. Paz does a great job in creating a very pleasant atmosphere filled with her vocal harmonies and layers of instrumental melodies. Paz said so herself on her website. “This album is not for everyone but is available only here for anyone.” This album will only be available on Paz Lenchantin’s website until the beginning of March." James McDermott
"...The soaring and beautiful folk melodies on Songs for Luci contain some of the best female vocals I have heard from the collective folk movement." naturalismo
un disco bonito de verdad...hace muy poco que lo descubrí pero desde ayer lo tengo en repeat. canciones que con el título ya lo dicen todo: "Montana Train" y "Kentucky Hymn", como dusty in memphis, tropical malady o field recordings. hay violines, un banjo, fingerpicking, un bucle precioso llamado "365" y la voz de Paz. dura muy poquito, apenas veinte minutos

Y Paz es asombrosa en directo. Fue parte del grupo de músicos que acompañaron a Jarboe en su gira de 2006 y, aunque el estilo sea muy diferente, no hay duda de que en el escenario es tremenda.
