ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Feed Your Soul is the fruition of Glenda's vision to combine Jazz, R&B and World Music styles. From the political consciousness of songs like "Liberate Me" and "We've Lost Our Way" to the sensuality of songs like "Black Raven" and "Wait for Love" and the high energy of songs like "Never Again" and "The Test", you will find Glenda's finely honed sensibility throughout. Partnering along the way with other songwriters, such as James McKinney who wrote hit songs for such stars as Freddie Jackson, Melba Moore, SWV and Chaka Kahn. Howard McCrary who has also written for Chaka Kahn, as well as Earth, Wind and Fire. And Jazz and Classical Pianist Michael Allen Harrison.

Glenda's voice contains power, beauty, and love. Her stage presence radiates compassion and depth. Glenda's calling is first and foremost that of a vocalist and Entertainer. Her voice casts a spell, from a sultry growl to a heavenly lilt. Her connection with the audience is intimate and open. Her voice oozes sensuality and passion and delivers raw power. Like the classic Jazz divas of old, Glenda captures a powerful mystique that enraptures her audience.

Glenda began her professional singing career at the age of 16. She has toured with a variety of bands of different genres before finding her soul's expression in Jazz/R&B. Glenda desire to make a difference and bring people together lead her to her passion to know other music cultures and it's diverse gifts. She has toured throughout Asia and North America as a professional performing artist. Glenda has also produced benefit concerts for international causes, from protecting the rainforest to fighting against AIDS. In 1998 she founded her record company Good Witch records and in 2006 merged with Dolce Voce Records, LLC. (www.dvrecords.com)

Glenda's amazing vocal talents are supported by a wide range of talent. On the Duet, "Wait for Love", she sings with Damian Perkins who won a Grammy for his performance on the Original Cast Album of Aida. Also adding their talents are Qawaali artist, Sukhawat Ali Khan son of the famous, Indian Classical vocalist, Salamat Ali Khan. M.C. Rai, Tunisian born Rai Vocalist. Vocalist and Trumpet player Rich Armstrong who has played with Hothouse Flowers and Boz Scaggs. Syrian violin virtuoso, Fathi Aljarah. And not one, but three exceptional Piano players, Gospel Star, Howard McCrary former musical director for Stevie Wonder, Michael Jackson, and Quincy Jones. James McKinney who has played with the Commodores, the Dazz Band, Buddy Miles and more. And from her own band, Murray Lowe who has performed with Tito Puente, Pete Escovido, and Sheila E among others. And lest we forget the boys of local Santa Cruz band, SambaDa, who lent their percussionist abilities to the project.

Such a Tasty Piece of Listening
I love this CD, because it captures me and my experience of life and living in a way that's fun to listen to over and over and over again. The music gets me moving every time I hear it. The words get me thinking about who I am and how I live my life. It's like eating a very tasty treat that's good for me. It's chocolate for my mind.
