From USA Today:
Meklit delivers a sound all her own. Born in Ethiopia and based in San Francisco, the singer-songwriter draws upon a spectrum of influences, crafting tunes that sound soulful, experimental, jazzy and even retro. (Case in point: She covers a song by The Police on her new record.)
That new album, “We Are Alive,” arrives March 18 from Six Degrees Records, and this week you can preview the whole thing exclusively on Pop Candy. Produced by Eli Crews, I think you’ll find it gets even better with each listen.
That piece also contains an interview snippet with Meklit, and of course the full stream of the album. (I’m especially excited about the new record since the cover is a live photo of Meklit that I shot in January at Dollhouse Productions.)
