Kim Cypher and Liane Carroll: Tomorrow’s Song

Written by | New Releases, News, Women in Jazz Media

Saxophonist, vocalist, composer and band leader Kim Cypher releases another brand-new original track as part of her ‘Brighter Tomorrow’ project – A Tribute to The Arts.

Featuring music born out of lockdown, each piece is written with love and passion for The Arts at a time when musicians were stripped of their livelihood, unable to work and fighting to retain their identity. Each piece expresses overwhelming emotions and feelings from the craziness of the situation, a need for reassurance leading to hope for a brighter tomorrow.

Following recent release of tracks: ‘Gonna Be Alright, Gonna Be OK’ and the beautiful soprano saxophone instrumental ‘Tomorrow’s Song’, Kim presents a stunning, stripped-back acoustic vocal version of ‘Tomorrow’s Song’ featuring one of the UK’s greatest jazz performers Liane Carroll. The track and video recorded ‘live’ at London’s 606 Club releases on 24th February with the video premiere on YouTube at 2.00pm.

Kim recently published an online webzine as part of her ‘Brighter Tomorrow’ project in which she stated: “It’s good to dream and it’s good to reach for the stars. Having recently recorded an instrumental version of ‘Tomorrow’s Song’, I found myself humming along to the melody line and before I knew it, I was releasing poignant emotions, singing along with some heartfelt lyrics. I could feel the passion in every word I sang. Suddenly I knew I needed to record a vocal version of the song, a stripped-back version, vulnerable and performed with the passion this project deserves. In my mind there was only one lady for the job – A phenomenal performer, a passionate soul, an inspiration and positive role model for The Arts – the incredible Liane Carroll.  Once that seed was planted, I simply couldn’t imagine anyone more perfect to bring my vision to life. So, I followed my dream, reached for the stars and asked Liane if she would record the song with me – just her and me and a whole lot of heart and soul. Guess what? She said YES!”

The track is beautifully captivating and the ‘live’ performance filmed at the 606 Club captures a very special moment between these two heart and soul performers – Kim Cypher and Liane Carroll. You can join the video premiere and view the video (after 24th February) here

Having been a huge fan of Liane’s for many years, taking great inspiration from her music, Kim expressed how happy she was when Liane came onboard with the project: “This made me very happy indeed. I have had the pleasure of performing with Liane a couple of times before and to have her onboard with this project just felt ‘right’ and of course a huge honour.” Kim and Liane first performed together back in 2018 when they were both headlining at Guiting Music Festival. Kim joined Liane with her band featuring Roger Carey on Bass and Russell Field on drums for a guest performance:
