Debut recording from stunning and vocalist Alicia Hall Moran

Featuring a collection of original songs with words and music by Alicia Hall Moran and showcasing the broad palette of colors she is known for: from deep velvety tones on FLOW MY TEARS (FOR SMOKEY ROBINSON) to clear bright and high on the traditional spiritual DEEP RIVER. Moran, the great grandniece of classic spiritual arranger Hall Johnson, is named for his mother, Alice, whose singing of spirituals he first transcribed. Taking his cue as a composer, instrumentalist and arranger, Moran has come forward with her own tunes, the singer-songwriter ballad BELIEVE ME where she also accompanies herself on piano; the electronic remix OPEN DOOR, the powerful theatrical ballad COME BACK INTO MY LIFE, and the understated soul lullaby, SHH.
