Featured artist: CORAL EGAN
of us who like music that moves and modulates, Coral Egan’s
My Favorite Distraction is a treat. In fact, the entire
collection of 11 original songs can be heard as a protest against
the tide of monophonic music that has crashed down over and disfigured
our once favorite and familiar shores of sound. If Canadian winters
are endless and unchanging, Egan’s music plays like spring,
bursting with new life and exciting, unpredictable transitions.
Mixing jazz with other genres, her music restores faith in composition
where each song reveals the architecture upon which the fate of
all lasting music depends. The writing, led by a highly developed
creative impulse, can be edgy and restless, but always at the
service of her emotions that she lays bare with refreshing subtlety
and nuance. And if she is sometimes guilty of over-composing,
the consolations are in abundance.
30, Egan has delivered a collection of compelling material that
does us proud; just as we know that she’s only going to
get better at what she already does well: compose and perform
album, My FavorIte Distraction, is distributed by
