About the Album

With feelings of profound loss over the direction of the world in the last several years, Los Angeles vocalist Cathy Segal-Garcia found herself searching back through songs from the '60's and '70s - another period of existential uncertainty. The songwriters of the day spoke to those conditions, offering hopes for healing, love and redemption and providing a moral touchstone for a generation. Partnering with supreme musicians, Anthony Wilson, Josh Nelson, Lorca Hart, and Edwin Livingston, Cathy found new paths to voice the feelings at the center of those songs, while adding resonance for these times. Songs from Stephen Stills, Marvin Gaye, Steve Winwood and Peter Gabriel are combined with the Segal-Garcia original, "What Are We Gonna Do." They uplift, add perspective, and console. “Segal-Garcia uses her deep and expressive voice to suggest more - not hope, not optimism, but perhaps that faith in our ability to rebound.”  - Marc Phillips
