Album Notes
"Songs From The Heart" represents a handful of new original songs that bring the guitar-vocal duet to new artistic heights. This is beautiful, contemplative music at its finest by a duo whose onstage and in-studio "magic" is nothing short of stunning. Both multi-award-winning performers in their own right, Tish Oney and John Chiodini firmly stake this recording as their third collaborative in-studio project (not to mention many live performances together)--its uniqueness alone among their other very successful straight-ahead, forward-looking jazz albums is worth treasuring as the gem that it is in their catalog. This music is different in more ways than just genre--it is more vulnerable, more revealing and more risky thematically by two veterans of jazz who could just as easily play it safe by chugging out only jazz albums so as not to confuse their fan base. But no--being ever true to her muse, Oney bravely ventures into new territory, recognizing that songs are born having a certain identity--just like people--and trying to make them something they are not is not staying true to oneself as a songwriter... hence the birth of "Songs From The Heart." Country, folk, pop and adult standard fans will love the first and last tracks, and those appreciating spiritual comfort, beautiful melodies, pure, honest singing and delightful interaction between voice and instrument will love all tracks in between. "Follow Me" gives listeners alternate versions of a gorgeous new acoustic country/folk/pop ballad worthy of consideration for "Song of the Year" at the 2017 Grammy Awards. "Be Still and Know" and "Ask, Seek, Knock" are set mostly to Biblical texts and serve up new standards for contemporary Christian listeners, and "A Blessing" is a brand new wedding song that thousands of couples will doubtless be able to resist having played at their own weddings. "Songs From The Heart" delivers all the satisfaction, listening pleasure, and musical integrity of any new recording on the market today.

"Tish Oney... showcases her delightful voice on a set of duets with guitarist John Chiodini... Her choice of notes and use of space are quite sophisticated. Chiodini, a masterful accompanist and a subtle soloist, has a style that is perfectly complementary and plenty of musical magic takes place between the duo... This exquisite set... rewards repeated listening..." (Scott Yanow, LA Jazz Scene)

"I had the chance and privilege to work with Tish... a few months back. Her artistry is extremely sharp, from perfect vocal chops to great story telling, not to mention a very well tailored show. Precise, accurate and captivating, Tish will take you on a delightful journey... Do yourself a favor, don't (just) go see her show, RUN!" (Jean-Pierre Perreaux, Technical Director, The Metropolitan Room, New York, NY)

"I appeared with Tish Oney in Las Vegas at the Dennis Bono show. The house was packed... As a professional singer for over 25 years I can say that Tish is one of the finest and smoothest vocalists I have ever heard. The variety and complexity of the songs she performed were great.... not only that, she brought down the house! When you need a pro, call Tish Oney. (Larry G Jones, Comic Singing Impressionist celebrating over 2,000 Las Vegas shows)

"Tish is one of the finest arrangers and composers on the jazz music scene today and her vocals are breathtakingly beautiful." (Joe Montague, Riveting Riffs Magazine)

"By the end of her first tune it was evident that Oney had a beautiful voice, warm and low. . . She sang perfectly in tune with amazing breath control, and her time (meter) was impeccable, and most of all, phrased with complete respect to the lyric. . .I had the realization that I was listening to a true jazz singer doing a beautifully presented themed show, such as you might hear at a fine NYC jazz cabaret such as Michael Feinstein's by singers like Ann Hampton Callaway, Jane Monheit, or the late Blossom Dearie. I also recall that only once before, attending one of Cleo Laine's Las Vegas appearances, I said every singer in town ought to be here, for this is a singing lesson, as well as great performance and entertainment. I now can say the same thing of Tish Oney. 'Happy With the Blues,' a fast and challenging opus was done as a dialogue between voice and bass without piano. It was a tour de force of vocal prowess, high risk for anyone without superb pitch and infallible rhythm. 'Lullaby of Birdland' bubbled with Tish's amazing ability as a scat singer, utilizing refreshingly new scat words and sounds. After performing her final selection, 'I Love Being Here With You,' it was more than evident that the audience loved being there with Tish and company." (Frank Leone, Editor of Jazz Notes! The Newsletter of the Las Vegas Jazz Society and President, Las Vegas Musician's Union)

"When Tish Oney sings, the sweetness of her soul blooms like a pungent, colorful, beautiful orchid... Oney has a truly pitch-perfect voice, wonderful phrasings, and enough swing or scat to own her personal page in the legitimate jazz singer's ledger. Seriously--this woman and her team not only do these songs justice...but she should give more famous singers like Diana Krall, Dianne Reeves, or Jane Monheit pause for concern. She's firmly on their trail." (Michael G. Nastos, All Music Guide)

"A voice like Tish Oney 's is a prime example of what other jazz singers strive for. Pitch perfect. Crystal clear. . . and all encompassing. Her innate understanding of the art (both emotionally and intellectually) not only reels you in willingly and begging for more, but creates a memory that lingers on far after she leaves the stage." (Michael Sterling, Producer, Sterling 's Upstairs at Vitello 's, Los Angeles)

" Miss Oney was absolutely a treat. A voice reminiscent of Doris Day and others from the bygone Jazz era, she delighted everyone in the mostly packed club with hits from the Great American Songbook. There did not seem to be any style she was not comfortable with. . . she is certainly ready to take LA and make it her own. Keep your eyes open and your schedules clear for any future dates with this beautiful lady with a voice of gold!" (LA Times.com)

"An amazing voice." (Gary Morgan, CBS Radio Los Angeles)

A brilliant vocalist." (Frank Malfitano, Executive Producer, Syracuse Jazzfest and Detroit Jazz Festival)

"Tish has a calm and cool style that conveys understanding while her vocals resonate with emotion. Tish sings from the heart." (John Chiodini, Former Musical Director for Peggy Lee, Guitarist and Composer)

"The best voice I've heard since Doris Day." (Les Brown)

(Tish Oney performed) "an intimate and classic evening of jazz/cabaret that filled my heart with nostalgia. Ms. Oney's crystal clear vocals, and the soft yet extremely intricate accompaniment of her truly talented musicians, gave the evening a charm and quality rarely seen today. The three performed as one-- simple and eloquent. As they say, less is more. This show was "the most." (Stu Hamstra, editor, Cabaret Hotline Online)
