Album Notes
Eugene Marlow’s MEII Enterprises indie label has released the third digital only, mini-album from the “In Their Own Voice” series. This album features the prodigious talent of vocalist Shira Lissek singing “Go Like the Wind” based on a Latin-tinged composition by Eugene Marlow and lyrics by Ellen Woloshin. The musicians feature Grammy-winning virtuoso pianist Arturo O’Farrill, with Bobby Porcelli on alto saxophone.

Ellen Woloshin/Lyricist

Singer/Songwriter Ellen Woloshin’s warm alto voice and heartfelt songwriting is fresh in its own right while referencing female songwriters from the past. Her release “Water Into Wine” is a set of originals with one Beatles classic. “The Words,” from “Water Into Wine,” moved one critic to say: “From the first moment of (the song) you know you are listening to something special…with a feeling of real warmth and real meaning behind the lyrics.” Also from this release, the track “Where Does All The Time Go,” co-written with songwriter Jennifer Dent, was a finalist in the 12th annual International Unisong Contest in the song and performance category. Additionally, Ellen has done some stunning versions of several well-known songs; most notably her version of “While My Guitar Gently Weeps” which can be heard on her first CD “Tried & True” and received airplay on the BBC. Her broad range of live and recording experience and early work in jingles has created a strong professional foundation. She has played countless gigs in a variety of venues from colleges to coffee houses to the Bluebird Café in Nashville. Ellen has also written for other artists like Dionne Warwick, Ben Vereen and LaToya Jackson.
