Boz Scaggs Sings Billie Holiday

A TRIBUTE TO BILLIE HOLIDAY RELEASED ON JULY 5th, 2011

ROMO*PR , June 6, 2011

StormVox Records will release A Tribute to Billie Holiday on July 5, 2011 – a new compilation featuring Angela Bassett as the guest narrator and musical performances from some of today’s hottest musical talent including Esperanza Spalding, Babyface, Rocco DeLuca, Boz Scaggs, Shelby Lynne, and more!

One of the highlights is Grammy-winner Esperanza Spalding’s interpretation of “I’ll Look Around.”

Billie Holiday’s vocal and songwriting legacy continues to influence generations of musicians. Admired all over the world for her deeply personal and intimate approach to singing, Holiday’s music continues to inspire and touch people in ways that transcend the decades since her passing over 50 years ago.

As a young child, actor Peter Stormare (Fargo, The Big Lebowski, Armageddon, and more) fell in love with Billie Holiday’s music. With a plan to one day honor her pioneering work, Stormare has officially released A Tribute To Billie Holiday via his label, StormVox Records.

“I discovered Billie Holiday through my mother who recommended the autobiography, Lady Sings The Blues by Billie Holiday. From the moment I opened the book, my life was never the same again.”

Peter continues, “Billie’s blunt words cut like knives, opening my eyes to her struggles but also opening my soul to something bigger.”
