Indra Rios-Moore to Perform at Russell Library
Indra and her band come to Middletown by way of Denmark and Los Angeles, where she recorded her new Album, Heartland (Impulse! 2015). The songs, she says, 'are all songs that traverse the territories of the heart. They are tunes that helped me and gave me space to rest even in the middle of the whirlwind of life.’ Her small band includes saxophonist Benjamin Traerup, bassist Thomas Sejthen and guitarist Jamie Fox. Her music draws from a deep well of songs, everything from gospel, blues and old-time music to David Bowie, Pink Floyd and Duke Ellington.
Clive Davis, in his review of the new album, says, “Her name may be unfamiliar, but that surely is about to change...She possesses a hauntingly pure voice and a knack for unearthing provocatively unorthodox material.”
After spending six years in Denmark, Indra moved to Los Angeles, where record producer Larry Klein was able to “nudge things a bit one way or the other” in order to produce the new album. “Nobody was trying to prove anything or show what they could do. Everything in service of the poetry of the whole,” he says in the liner notes of the album.
Before embarking on a tour to Europe in March, the band will be performing at B.B.King’s Blues Club & Grill in New York City January 15th.
