About the Album

The Canadian composer, singer, and poet unveils a confident collection  of ‘tone poems’ – her own post-modern mix of jazz, free improvisation,  ‘contemporary’ classical, poetry, and film music elements. The singer, composer, and poet Lara Solnicki is praised for her “boldly unique style” . Solnicki’s third album, The One and the Other – out March 12 on the Outside In Music label – is an art song project that mines the tension between her music and poetry. “I call these songs ‘tone poems,’” says Solnicki, “because they are governed and held together by a ‘poetic logic,’ as well as being an off-shoot of that tradition.”
