Welcome to my brand new website designed by creative genius Janelle Reichman of Continuum Web Design. I’m thrilled with the site and invite you to have a look around as there are many new features as compared to my old. My hope is that this site will keep you better informed about my musical activities, interests, and endeavors and allow for better communication and dissemination of exciting news.
In the meantime, there’s much news to share within the world of CD projects!
My sister, vocalist Rachel Caswell, & I are thrilled to announce that our 1st Caswell Sisters CD “Alive in the Singing Air” featuring the incomparable pianist Fred Hersch has just been released! As most of you know, this project has been in the works for a while, so we’re excited to finally share it with all of you! In celebration of its release, Rachel and I are giving several US concerts during the coming months ~ be sure to check either my itinerary, or that on our joint website for more details.
Equally talented as a composer and trumpeter, Nadje Noordhuis has just released a beautiful collection of her compositions performed by her, yours truly, pianist Geoff Keezer, bassist Joe Martin, and drummer Obed Calvaire, as well as percussionist James Shipp and guitarist Rupert Boyd. The album is receiving rave reviews, and you’ll understand why within one minute of hearing the opening track.
Last spring, Rose & the Nightingale, a unique and genre-bending quartet featuring me (violin/mandolin), Jody Redhage (cello/voice/compositions), Laila Biali (voice/piano), and Leala Cyr (voice/trumpet), recorded “Spirit of the Garden”, a song cycle celebrating the sublimity of gardens through song and poetry. We’re thrilled to announce that this album will be released May 7th on Sunnyside Records! Stay tuned for updates regarding its release and upcoming tours.
So…enjoy exploring my new site and as always, please stay in touch.
Thanks for all your support!
