ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
About "Pretty On Thursday":

Leah's second CD, "Pretty on Thursday", takes the listener on a musical journey of style and substance. From heart-wrenching ballads to groove-oriented rock/pop, Leah's acoustic-based songs are hooky and memorable without ever getting tired. You'll want to keep listening. Within two weeks of its release, one song from the CD, "Thursday In December", had placed second in a songwriting contest and received extensive internet radio play.

"Pretty On Thursday" goes to a new level of sound and production and features some of the finest musicians the USA and Canada has to offer. The production quality is as good as what you'd hear on mainstream airwaves. Each song is carefully crafted and will appeal to listeners who remember when the lyric was the thing, when songs had meaning, and to those who miss substance in contemporary music. This recording won't insult your intelligence.

About Leah Zicari

Leah's catchy and clever songs have appealed to audiences of all ages and backgrounds, but it is her guitar skills that make her a standout among the genre of girls with guitars. With a master's degree in Classical Guitar Performance and her experience as a professional symphony and theater pit musician, her guitar accompaniments reflect this versatile musical background.

As a singer/songwriter she has opened for Sophie B. Hawkins, Patty Griffin, The Brothers Creeggan, Don McLean, Melissa Ferrick and Steve Forbert, and she has billed with Edie Carey, Holly Figueroa, Ember Swift, Mary Simon, Erin Smith and Melissa McClelland.

An award-winning songwriter and vocalist, she has been compared to Shawn Colvin, Patty Griffin, Jonatha Brooke, Joan Baez, and was once described as "Pete Seeger meets Ani DiFranco".

Quotes:

From Edie Carey:

"Pretty On Thursday is just a phenomenal record. Zicari is on fire from the first whispered notes of the record to the very last chord. This is a woman who knows exactly who she is, who knows how to play the hell out of her instrument, and who has clearly had music running through every last vein since the day she was born. I don't know exactly what happened in that studio up there in Canada, but it was clearly magical."

From David Alley, manager of Richard Carpenter and the Carpenter Legacy:

"After hearing your submission for the song contest, I just had to hear more of you. I was very impressed!"

From Madalyn Sklar, CEO of GoGirlsMusic.com:

"Leah Zicari's newest release "Pretty on Thursday" is pretty darn awesome! Right from the first track, "This Is Me", I'm wondering why I'm not hearing Zicari on the radio. The quality of her music and gut-wrenching lyrics take me on a musical journey. This is one of the best CDs I've heard in a long time."

From John Raymond Pollard (Outmusic):
"Sterling vocal arrangements and intelligent lyrics. The entire album is a gem."

Pretty On Thursday
Any musician would be abundantly blessed having either Ms. Zicari's sublime vocal OR guitar skills. The fact that she possesses both and gets them to intertwine in such beautiful songs is totally breath-taking, and her songwriting continues to get more engaging with each release. The interaction with drummer Corallo, both recorded and in live situations, is simply phenomenal. I may be gushing, but Leah's work has earned it. Hearing this artist do what she does is one of the great joys of living!

Leah is just amazing and so is her Cd, start to finish. The minute I got it I played it non stop and was quoting it right off. Her vocals are pure and powerful without the over-done vocal tricks that plague many of the newer artists albums, her lyrics are very thought provoking and at the same time fun. Anyone would have a better collection to add this album to their collection!

Corey

Awesome
This is a must have CD. Leah is one extremely talented musician.

She got it right!
I had the opportunity to listen to tracks that weren't finished of Pretty on Thursday while working with Leah on this cd. In order to get a FEEL of the recording to help me in the design of the cd I asked for her to send some of the recordings. I put the cd in the player and sat down on the floor...It was amazing even in it's raw stage. Having thought Hard Road was pretty good, Pretty on Thursday absolutely convinced me that this was it. She got it right!

A beautiful album... gorgeous anytime.
On a gray day in Manhattan, I walked through the post-holiday traffic with my iPod playing Leah Zicari on repeat. This is a beautiful album, tenderly produced to showcase Leah’s spot-on lyrics and luscious vocals. Seven million people and in the middle of it all, Leah was singing only to me, with me, about me and for me. I barely resisted the temptation to sing along, remembering just in time that this was an intimate moment and the entire city was locked out. The next time I need to declare my self-acceptance ("This is Me"), quiet desperation ("I Wanna Be Wrong"), frustrated disconnection ("I Slept Through the Morning") or the longing of my inner lonesome daydreamer ("Thursday in December"), I won’t have to search for the words. Leah has found them and given them intoxicating life. The idea may be PRETTY ON THURSDAY, but the CD is gorgeous anytime.

Leah Zicari has taken a quantum leap in her already wonderful musical talent.
Leah Zicari's last CD, "Hard Road," was an extraordinary album of song and songwriting gems. So I was looking forward to her new release. But what I did not expect was to be bowled over with the quantum leap she took with "Pretty on Thursday." It has the right music, the right arrangements and the right singing to get across her wonderful and thoughtful lyrics, and to keep them in your head long after you've turned off the player. If "Hard Road" was a gem, this one's a diamond.
