Portland's own vocalist and singer/songwriter ANANDI and Ashé Records warmly invite you to a celebration of the release of her new album A Better Way. Portland audiences may know Anandi as a wonderful jazz singer singing The Great American Songbook, but this latest release, produced and performed by the Portland-based pianist Greg Goebel, shows off her original songwriting talents and expressive vocals. On this evening, backed by some of Portland's best players, she'll be offering a refreshing mix of original songs from her new album with a twist of jazz.
Anandi’s expressive and beautiful voice delivers lyrics with a strong sense of wakefulness, ranging from the complexity of love to an homage to Nelson Mandela to an original cover of Jim Pepper’s iconic song ‘Witchi Tai To’. The uplifting title track, inspired by Portland’s homeless crisis, encourages us to find “A Better Way” to solve poverty and suffering.
A portion of the evening's proceeds will go to benefit Rose Haven, a shelter for homeless women and children.
