Poison & Wine

by Bill Kwan

On Bill Kwan’s new album, he veers away from straight forward jazz and explores other musical landscapes. By combining aspects of jazz, pop, rock and country influences, he has crafted a unique artistic statement all his own. Contemporary songwriters like Beck, Gillian Welch, Ryan Adams and Bjork are showcased in this exquisite collection of both familiar and lesser known songs by these great artists. Working with ace producer Matt Pierson, and featuring expceptional musicians: Kevin Hays (piano, keyboards), Tony Scherr (guitar, bass), Teddy Kumpel (guitar) and Tony Mason (drums); the band has created a lush and deep sonic resonance. This album is sure to become a new favorite.

Album Notes
Poison & Wine is a lovelorn interpretation of painful-yet-beautiful songs by the some of the greatest songwriters of our generation. Vocalist Bill Kwan delivers an impeccably curated collection, with lyrics filtered through his own heartbroken lens, delicately reconstructing the songs much like a ruminative jazz singer interpreting the great classics.

A longtime fan of every songwriter whose work fills Poison & Wine, Bill turns the sweet melancholy that runs throughout the album into an empowering bond, connecting the musically divergent songs.
