4000 Weeks

by Eugenia Elliott

The missing link between torch songs of the 40s and 50s and the acoustic-based indie music of today. The tracks feel comfortably lived-in—like a group of recently re-discovered standards, with warm, uncomplicated arrangements and glowing harmonies.

ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Eugenia has been singing all her life. The very first time, at the tender age of 7 on stage in a summer production of Cinderella. Although she is also an accomplished flute player having started playing in fourth grade, her heart lies in her love of singing. The turning point towards becoming more serious about music came when a gift from her brother of a Sarah Vaughan album turned a private and personal love of singing into her successful endeavor in becoming part of the vocal sorority. Since moving to Chicago in 1991 from the east coast, Eugenia has made her mark on the Chicago music scene in a wide variety of musical genres that include vocal jazz standards, bluegrass, old time country and popular contemporary music. Eugenia has not only performed in many well known Chicago venues but has been successful in the realm of studio recording including demo and album work. Like many of her generation struggling to get a solid foothold in the business, Elliott has held down a variety of “day jobs” including those as a clinical social worker and massage therapist. She feels there is a symbiotic bond between the two professions and music in that all are dedicated to relationships, communication and, in a sense, healing.

Eugenia’s steady development as a musician has led naturally to the world of songwriting. “Melodies have always lived in my head”, she says, “and have been waiting for an opportunity to be brought to life”. She admires the poetry of the great songwriters and also loves the sound of language. 4000 Weeks has been nurtured into existence with the extensive talents of singer/songwriter Steve Dawson as producer, musician and engineer. This partnership has resulted in a lush and versatile sound that brings together much of Eugenia’s singing history into one album. Eugenia's songs examine an innocent yet reflective yearning for knowledge about where we came from, where we are going and what we find ourselves doing in between. 4000 Weeks is the missing link between the torchy country songs of the 40s and 50s and the acoustic-based indie music of the present. The 13 tracks feel comfortably lived-in—like a group of recently re-discovered standards—featuring Elliott's rich, warm alto, uncomplicated arrangements and glowing harmonies.
