About the Album

Canadian singer/songwriter, pianist, producer, artist, and JAZZFM.91 Toronto radio producer/host Laura Fernandez is taking the time to "Breathe Life" in this, her new single. An intense, emotional ode to love, its recurrent line 'you breathe life into me' is fervent, and almost prayer-like; Alexander Brown shines with a beautiful, muted trumpet and the overall sense of the song is hushed and jazzy in a minor key. "Breathe Life" gives you a taste of Fernandez's new album, Okay, Alright (Sonic Peach Music) - a stunning baker's dozen of deeply intimate lyrical sojourns released October 2nd. Blending pop, jazz and classical influences throughout the vibrant collection, Okay, Alright navigates the Steinway Artist's varied styles and grooves through an expert rhythm section, string accompaniment, guitar, trumpet, and mandolin - all corralled to create a sonic texture all her own. Shaped by a fluid, even feeling piano and a voice that's richly warm and enigmatically expressive, the release will have audiences believing and reeling on every word she sings.
