Chesky Records is proud to be celebrating its 30th year of operation in 2016. One of the ways we're highlighting the tremendous catalog of artists we've recorded over the years is to ask you, the fans, who some of your favorites are. Not only will we be allowing you to vote in head-to-head match-ups, but we'll also be providing discounts for 50% off any Chesky album on HDtracks for those that vote (one use per customer, expires 9/8)! Whether you've heard all of our artists already, or are discovering some for the first time, there's something rewarding for everyone. For this tournament, we'll be looking at female vocalists, and we'll vote until one winner remains leading up to the release of our newest female vocalist...Macy Gray.

 

 

 

VALERIE JOYCE

Without settling into jazz-vocalist convention, Valerie Joyce has developed a voice that is wonderfully idiosyncratic, lush, and richly expressive. In an emotionally arresting and disarmingly vulnerable style, she delivers standards, modern songs destined to become standards, and originals, all with great emotional nuance. With a knowing and considered expression of music and lyrics, she conveys a sense of discovering lyrics and the resonance of songs as if for the first time. All this is documented on Joyce’s fine discs on the influential audiophile label, Chesky Records. Those albums mark the maturation of this stellar Seattle-based singer, who grew up in Japan, the daughter of a Japanese mother and American father. Joyce’s musical education began with early solfege and classical piano lessons, and then music studies while pursuing her college degree in the United States, where she has lived since 1991. She has been making recordings since 2002 (Reverie), followed in 2003 by a yet-to-be-released world-jazz project with pianist Michael Wolff and others, and then two acclaimed CDs with Chesky since 2004. New York Blue featuring pianist Andy Ezrin and The Look of Love: The Music of Burt Bacharach, featuring pianist David Hazeltine. (by Peter Monaghan)

 

NOAH WALL

Those that follow Chesky Records closely will recognize the voice of Noah Wall from our previous recording, From The Mountaintop. Now back with her own band, Noah Wall lets her voice shine through on this stunning example of classic Folk sensibilities with a modern twist. Down Home Blues mixes traditional Folk songs with new original material showcasing Wall’s songwriting as well as vocals.

 

Noah is also the lead singer, fiddler, and founding member of the award winning acoustic band "The Barefoot Movement." Now based in Nashville, TN, the group continues to rack up the miles, touring both domestically and internationally. Wall's songwriting skills can be heard in the majority of the band's original material, which has been compiled onto three full length albums. The group's notoriety continues to grow through features in such publications as Country Weekly Magazine, RollingStone.com, CMT Edge, and Billboard.com. In 2014, they were presented with the Momentum Award for Band of the Year by the International Bluegrass Music Association. Declared "one of the most promising bands on the bluegrass scene" by CMT, the band is still going strong, bringing shoe-less excitement to every performance.

I own two Valerie Joyce DSD64 albums (not Chesky) and she is a Seattle musician, place of my birth and long-time home-town before my move to Britain, but I'm not sure which I like better. I'll have to give Noah Wall a listen and decide.

 

Valerie Joyce is a bit sleepy, but lovely.

Noah Wall for me ;)

I know music is timeless but it's odd putting a younger artist against one that's been around for awhile...no? Anyways voted and much thanks for the excellent coupon!

By vocal quality, I've got to give this to Valerie Joyce. The recording quality is better on Noah Wall.

 

Also what the hell is going on with the Spotify sound? Is it always that tinny and awful? Yuck!

Yep, as above.

I also liked Noah's style of music better.

Whatever happened with Korbe Canida, the last winner of a Chesky vocalist competition? I haven't seen anything about an album on Chesky's website or HDTracks.
