“Butterfly Blue” on the GRAMMY ballot!

Grammy Consideration 2015_2_small

Halie Loren’s 2015 release “Butterfly Blue” is on the 58th GRAMMY ballot, for consideration in the “Best Vocal Jazz Album” category! For your consideration…

“Halie Loren glides in flight on her new album Butterfly Blue from newly composed musical poetry to the songbook of American music on the wings of a deepening and darkening musical sense, an extraordinary accompanying group of musicians and a voice to wring out all the passion, pain and promise of living. We are captives of the cages of our lives but the spirit still soars.”
The International Review of Music (Brian Arsenault), June 2015

“Gifted vocalist and composer Halie Loren’s latest recording (her eighth) is all about transformation and the resilient nature of the human heart. In keeping with these themes, Alaskan-born Loren has deftly selected a musical palette that incorporates not only beloved standards from The Great American Songbook, but well-written contemporary and original compositions as well as a beloved jazz anthem of hope.”
– TheWholeNote.com (Lesley Mitchell-Clarke), September 2015

“Butterfly Blue” was released on Justin Time Records in North America on June 9th, 2015, after enjoying its debut as the #1 Billboard Jazz album in Japan  when it was released there last January on JVC Kenwood.

The album can be streamed on Soundcloud via the playlist featured below:

Beautiful reviews for “Butterfly Blue”

Halie Loren’s new album “Butterfly Blue” (available now!) is receiving glowing reviews… a few snippets:

“Halie Loren glides in flight on her new album Butterfly Blue from newly composed musical poetry to the songbook of American music on the wings of a deepening and darkening musical sense, an extraordinary accompanying group of musicians and a voice to wring out all the passion, pain and promise of living. We are captives of the cages of our lives but the spirit still soars. ” – International Review of Music (Read the entire review HERE, or visit the halieloren.com Press page)

“This is another first-class album from Halie Loren. While she continues to wow us with her voice and musical sensibility, her depth grows as she presents more of her own material. This is a fabulous album I’ll listen again and again. I highly recommend it.” – MusicSnake (by Joe Frasier. Read the entire review HERE, or visit the halieloren.com Press page)
