More Info:

On her captivating solo debut, After The News, Addi McDaniel points her search inwards, channeling the pain of loss and regret into a transformative work of beauty and strength. Hailed as "a dynamo with a brass-plated voice" by the LA Times, McDaniel is both an extraordinary singer and a gifted interpreter of song, and After The News finds her breathing vivid life into a raft of original songs from collaborator Tom Siering, whose material she deftly pairs with covers of tracks by Andrew Bird and Bruce Cockburn. Backed by an all-star cast of musicians including drummer/producer Marco Giovino (Robert Plant, Norah Jones), McDaniel blurs the lines between roots, blues, soul, and jazz on the album, inhabiting each track with the range and empathy of an actor taking on a role.  Smoky and sincere, gentle in it's insistence, her voice conveys a daring intimacy that feels tailor-made for Siering's candidly honest reflections on sorrow and regret, hope and forgiveness, pain and transcendence.
