ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
"This album was born from beauty and friction. It is my love letter to the east and west coasts: the craggy edges of the east, the vast expanse of the west, and all the dark alleyways in between." ~ AR

Why Noir? That haunting sax solo line running through "Taxi Driver", the distant blow of a conch and those voodoo drums from "I Walked With A Zombie"... shadings of light and shadow... music and images that left a stamp of recognition on me like a raised brand I couldn't get rid of. That post-war, atomic age desperation still ripples that dark lake off Highway 2. Femme fatale, Lady Fate, I never know quite what she has in store for me. All I can do is surrender and go for a ride. She drives like the night, blinded but knowing, to a destination of her own choosing.

A fresh blend of originals and standards.

“The magic of Michel Legrand is that anyone can sing him, but Rockwell SINGS him with such a cut above distinction and vision that she grabs you right out of the box. A mature vocal date with a load of originals that finds her having the nads to write lyrics to a Piazzolla classic, this is one gal you have to admire. Wonderfully out of the ordinary due solely to her interpretive skills and style, this is the high water mark for all vocalists to come to follow. Killer stuff throughout.” ~ Chris Spector, Midwest Record

"Her voice is a bit deeper and fuller, but her phrasing, her use of occasional melisma, and the breathy sexiness of her sound call to mind Morgana King. I mean this as high praise.' ~ Gerry Geddes

"Although many vocalists have included torch singing in their repertoire, few have made it a specialty as has Abigail Rockwell. With her breathy, smoky voice and sultry demeanor, she is most reminscent of Julie London. What Rockwell brings to this table of torch is poetry." ~ Marilyn Lester

"Abigail Rockwell's deep, sultry tones will seduce you like an irresistible siren - entreating your heated heart to open and reveal its unspoken longings and dark mysteries." ~ Gary Catona

Abigail comes from a family of artists. Her biography is in her work.
