"If you live in or near the Twin Cities, you are probably already familiar with the succulent duo sounds of songbird Charmin Michelle and guitarist Joel Shapira ... And if they are a new find, what a treat!"
– Jazz Police

“Butterfly Wings” is the new release from this premiere Minneapolis/St. Paul jazz duo. It showcases a wonderfully diverse collection of tunes in the most intimate duet setting of voice and guitar. With close to 25 years of extensive performing and recording together, sublime songstress Charmin Michelle and formidable jazz guitarist Joel Shapira present a collaboration of great beauty. “Butterfly Wings” highlights two lifetimes dedicated to the timeless art of jazz, with its traditional underpinnings and modern sensibilities.
