Release: Willa Vincitore "Choices"

Willa-Vincitore-ChoiceRelease:  Willa Vincitore "Choices"


Willa Vincitore is a singer/songwriter based in the Hudson Valley region of New York. She arrived on the scene seemingly out of nowhere in 2017 with her first release Better Days, which was met with high praise and held its own for six consecutive months on the Roots Music Report’s Top 50 contemporary blues albums of 2017. Half of the singles charted, an impressive debut for a previously unknown, independent artist performing all-original material.

Reflections in Blue blogger Bill Wilson said, "Willa Vincitore has one of those voices that will stay with you for life. Good, even great, vocalists are a dime a
dozen...but every now and then, someone comes along who brings everything back into perspective in a big way.”

Her sophomore release, Choices, continues to showcase her eclectic songwriting, digging deeper lyrically and rejecting classification in any one
genre. Many influences can be heard here, ranging from ‘70s and ‘80s pop, rock and R&B, to Americana, blues and even gospel tones. Unlike Better Days, which was entirely original material, Willa chose to cover one tune on this release, paying homage to Annie Lennox with her funky cover of “Money Can’t Buy It.” She brought back many of the top-flight musicians from Better Days, including co-producers Lee Falco and Brandon Morrison (The Restless Age, Donald Fagen, Marshall Crenshaw, Amy Helm). Falco also played drums on the release, while Morrison engineered and mixed.

Recently inducted into New York State’s Blues Hall of Fame, Vincitore spent the early part of her stage career backing Chris O’Leary (Levon Helm’s Barnburners and The Chris O’Leary Band) as an original member of his band, but she’s been performing on her own with a collection of extraordinary musicians since 2013.
