map to the treasure: reimagining laura nyro ft. becca stevens & alicia olatuja
When Billy Childs was 11 years old, his older sister introduced him to the work of Rock & Roll Hall of Fame singer-songwriter, Laura Nyro (1947-1997). Her blend of Broadway inspired melodies, jazz improvisation and socially conscious lyrics have stayed with him. Now Billy has returned to his early source of inspiration, conceiving and orchestrating the new album, Map to the Treasure: Reimagining Laura Nyro (Sony Masterworks), which features an incredible range of musicians who join him in interpreting her narratives.
Project features guest vocalists Becca Stevens and Alicia Olatuja.
