Join me on Friday October 16th at 9pm EST for the CD launch of Jacelyn’s Holmes new Jazz CD entitled Dovetailing.
Just after the initial lockdown in March 2020, I was approached by Toronto’s Jacelyn Holmes (jazz musician and country music songwriter) in support of her 2020 CD release. Initially, the CD title was deliberately withheld by Jacelyn to encourage creativity and inspiration for the artists to select a song that truly struck a chord.
I was one of 10 women artists invited to listen to her entire CD and select a song that spoke to me and then create a piece of art that was representative of the song. That song was Dovetailing, which turned out to be the title track of the CD by the same name.
The process was inspired by listening to the song and creating a feeling of one becoming more than one. One being magnetically drawn to another; passions that could not be ignored. I’ve also included the lyrics within the art.
My painting entitled Dovetailing, will be revealed to the public during Jacelyn’s launch on Friday October 16th. The launch will include various clips of my interview about this project. Additional launches include the Montreal and Tokyo Jazz Festivals, as well as Europe and North America.
I love Jacelyn’s music, her voice, and her personality. Born and raised in Mississauga, she’s become an internationally recognized musician and actor, having performed with Keith Urban and with Adam Sandler.
