ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Female Vocalist of the Year, 2005 - Wisconsin Area Music Industry (WAMI)

Deirdre Fellner's vocal performance is well described as "Fixin' to Wail." An award winning vocalist and talented musician, Deirdre masterfully interprets the great Soul, Jazz and Blues legends with the artistry and flexibility granted by a lifetime of musical study and performing. Deirdre is a musician's singer, continuing to emulate the masters while passionately presenting a style of her own.

"Deirdre's vocals inspire - they either make your spine tingle or make the hair on the back of your neck stand up." Fred Perry, Manager, Grand Aleutian Hotel, Alaska

Deirdre grew up in Door County, Wisconsin and has been writing and performing since her teens. Her own music is a riveting blend of jazz, soul and blues with strong melodies & rhythm and intelligent lyrics. Deirdre released "Fixin' to Wail," her debut CD of original material, in 1999 to rave reviews and exceptional sales and in 2002, "Fixin' to Wail" was licensed to Italy's Comet Records for global release under the Horizon label.

Whether performing in small or large venues, Deirdre has the musical and performance ability to gauge the crowd and instantly tailor her performance to the mood of the room. Her rapport with the audience never fails to create an atmosphere of excitement and entertainment.

"Fellner, with her rich, bluesy voice that runs the gamut of emotion, is always a big draw. She effectively conveys the very heart and soul of a song, and the crowd invevitably loses itself." Sarah Burridge, Alaska Newspapers, Inc.

Deirdre's credits include work with jazz, big band, blues and variety groups and session work. Since returning to Wisconsin after a four year tenure in Alaska, Deirdre, with her band, The Whole of Soul, has been featured in a number of prestigious concert festivals including Summerfest, the Kettle Moraine Jazz Festival, Summer Sizzle Jazz Festival, Rainbow Summer, Generations in Jazz - Women in Jazz & Blues, in addition to concert dates and guest spots on radio and television throughout the state and country.

"Fellner belts out blues in a wail that comes from the Koko Taylor school, and pens blues tunes that eschew that paint-by-numbers format favored by too many Midwest bar bands." Dave Luhrssen, Shepherd Express-Metro, Milwaukee, WI

Deirdre Fellner currently resides in Milwaukee, Wisconsin and is performing in support of her new release, SOUL. Audiences and critics agree, Deirdre Fellner is Fixin' to Wail.
