Official Music Video for “Black” from BLACK MARKET:

 

Speaking of eclectic, I’m not sure

anything better suits that

description than Black Market…

It is a stunning release on which

Cooper Gay’s pure, crystalline

soprano voice is featured in

convincing renditions of

Renaissance settings by John

Dowland, José Marin, Tarquinio

Merula and Claudio Monteverdi

accompanied by period

instruments, juxtaposed with

clever arrangements by Drew

Jurecka of contemporary

songs by Jill Barber, Radiohead,

Kishi Bashi and Punch Brothers.

Somehow Cooper Gay and her

cohorts – whose instruments

range from harpsichord and

lute and all manner of violin

family instruments, French

horn and clarinets, to qanun

(Middle Eastern zither) and Juno

(Roland synthesizer) – make what

might have seemed like oil and

water, into a very palatable

mixture indeed. Compelling

listening!

“This gorgeous woman

Erin Cooper Gay has the

most beautiful pipes! …

I was so honoured when

she did an interpretation

of one of my unrecorded

songs. She also covers

Radiohead’s Talk Show Host (!!!)

I find it spellbinding.”

– Jill Barber, Juno-nominated singer

 


 

Wow…….absolutely beautiful!!!!!!

– Peter Oundjian, Music Director,

Toronto Symphony Orchestra
