Halie Loren

Sometimes the multitude of emails that land in your inbox can be a blessing - take Amazon.com for example - because I am obviously on file as a jazz fan they let me know about this Eugene, Oregon based singer/songwriter.

I have checked out a few samples from her CD "After Dark" and was very impressed with her sultry style - particularly on "In a Sentimental Mood". She immediately makes a connection with her listener - at turns shy and tentative but also forthright or a note perfect take on a blues with a tune from another album "They Oughta Write a Song". It's like being caressed by a warm summer breeze while sipping something cool. I certainly would love to hear her in a live setting.

She has apparently earned some renown as a songwriter and as they say is a rising star....
