"Gretchen Parlato is a singer-arranger of consummate control and slow-burning intensity... lives at the crossroads of sensuous and spiritual, singing from deep within hypnotic grooves with enormous rhythmic sophistication."
— Allen Morrison, Downbeat Magazine
on Edition Records
‘Lean In’ tells the story of 20 years of connection, inspiration and friendship between two musical soulmates.
release date - May 19!!
The very first duo recording from two musicians who have performed together for more than two decades,
Lean In is all about healing, deep trust, love and family. In a time when warmth and compassion are needed more than ever before, both artists felt compelled to make a record sharing songs of inspiration, reflection, wonder and unity, with the title encouraging us to ‘lean in’ to ourselves and to those around us.
Lean In is a record for the soul.
