What is it about a voice? Where do we find a sound we love and need to hear again and again? Is it the lyrics that talk to us or the melody getting into our memory?
A third-generation Arizonan and native Tucsonan, Cantrell who now resides in Ashland, Oregon has been singing since the age of six in choirs, rock â€˜n’ roll bands, folk and jazz ensembles, as well as vocalizing in the context of musical theater and modern dance. Cantrell has performed in the USA, South America, and Europe.
There needs to be a new category for the music Cantrell is creating now. Every song on her new CD, Moving, Not Leaving is different, yet it takes the listener on a complete journey.
Recorded in Holland and Tucson with a stellar line up of veteran performers, This is a sound we will look to hear over and over.
