The Myth of Red is fusion of opera arias, Russian
folk tunes, and art songs with beat-driven electronic soundscapes.
The MOR features 13 tracks inspired by or based on Rachmaninoff (Awakening),
Caccini (Ave Maria), Pergolesi (Stabat Mater) Saint-Saëns
(The Forbidden Dance), and The Incubus by the notorious
poet Charles Baudelaire. The production, programming, and keyboards
of Frank Fitzpatrick and David Tobocman, and the lovely violin of
Lili Hayden support the album beautifully. Delirium, Joey Moskowitz,
Dan Martinez contributed remixes.
Miles Away features 5 songs that
will be on Sasha’s follow up to The Myth of Red. Sasha teamed
with the extraordinary producing team Bliss to create the original
songs Miles Away and Carnival. David Tobocman
wrote the haunting Marigold which Sasha recorded live
with cellist Dave Eggar and pianist Emily Olin. Frank Fiztpatrick
(producer of the Myth of Red) and Dave Schommer contributed their
original take on Cyndi Lauper’s All Through the Night.
E is a beautiful Italian ballad that features the haunting
voice Philip Hamilton.
Sasha teamed up with soprano Shawna Stone and
Grammy award-winning producer Peter Asher to put their distinctive
on original songs (including Stabat Mater from the
Myth of Red), opera favorites (Una Furtiva Lagrima)
and contemporary covers from Radiohead (Fade Out) to
James Taylor (Close Your Eyes) to Kansas (Dust
in the Wind.) The album will be released on March 6 on Manhattan
As a fitting parallel to her career as a crossover
artist in the electronica, chill-out genre (The Myth Of Red),
soprano Sasha Lazard presents Moonfall, an album of songs performed
live with an acoustic
trio. Clean, direct, and passionate, this collection of songs, both
classical and popular, offers Sasha's voice unadorned except for
the emotions and musical colors that are here in full bloom. Her
trio include her longtime vocal coach: pianist Emily Olin (www.EmilyOlin.com) and
cellist Noah Hoffeld.
