Realms Album: Press Release
Realms is an intriguing collaboration founded by singer Rosalie Genay and pianist Rebecca Nash, two artists who share a fascination and fondness for the songs of contemporary lyrical legends Tom Waits and Leonard Cohen. Together they have embarked on an ambitious journey to arrange some of their idols’ tracks for this new project, consciously including less well known songs in amongst the more popular ones and setting them into imaginative new arrangements.
The covers might lend themselves well to a more jazz-inspired backing but Genay is careful not to lose anything in the transition. By offering a different perspective on Waits and Cohen’s music, and by including their own original tunes in their repertoire as well, Genay, Nash and co. provide ample opportunity to enjoy the collective talent of the band. This tour takes them outside their London base and around the UK to promote the release of their debut album in February 2014.
