Hollywood, CA (August 31, 2020)—Contemporary jazz singer and songwriter Lindsey Webster recorded her new album at United Recording in just the nick of time, completing the project shortly before Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti issued his Safer at Home emergency order in response to the coronavirus pandemic.
For her sessions at United, Webster assembled a cast of legendary sidemen to realize her vision: Luis Conte on percussion, Vinnie Colaiuta on drums, Nathan East on bass and Keith Slattery, who also shares producer and composer credits, on keys. Mark Gray engineered alongside United’s Wesley Sideman.
“Working at United was a dream come true,” Webster recalls. “It was inspiring to be in a building with such an incredible history — to stand where some of my musical idols once stood before me. Not to mention recording with some of my favorite musicians of all time. Oh, and of course, the amazing staff at United made the experience such a pleasure. I can’t wait to get back!”
Warner’s new 11-track album is titled A Woman Like Me. The album’s first single, “Feels Like Forever,” hit #14 on the Billboard charts, followed by “One Step Forward.” She has previously garnered two Billboard #1s and seven Top 10s on the Billboard Contemporary Jazz Chart, reportedly making her the first vocalist in the format to garner a #1 since Sade.
“I had the pleasure of working with Lindsey for the first time in Carmel at the Jazz Weekender concert series,” comments bassist Nathan East. “She captivated the entire audience with her amazing singing and that night we both made a promise that we would work together again. Her new album is only the beginning of what I hope to be many more collaborations together.”
