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)
Halie Loren’s newest album “Butterfly Blue” is now available worldwide! It is available through all major digital outlets, many independent record stores, and through the Halie Loren Official Webstore, where you can purchase a physical CD or download a digital album and/or individual songs (that can be downloaded as MP3s or the higher-resolution audiophile-friendly formats of FLAC, ALAC, AAC, or Ogg Vorbis).

“Butterfly Blue” is receiving some great reviews right out of the gate! Here is a recent highlight:
“Halie Loren’s Butterfly Blue strikes a perfect balance of classic and original jazz songs. The new blends with the old and the old is made new in Ms. Loren’s renditions of them … 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 to again and again. I highly recommend it.”
