“vintage jazz-rock fusion… decidedly funky” – All About Jazz
Eric Krasno is a founding member of Lettuce and Soulive and Stanton Moore is a founding member of Galactic and Garage-a-Trois. After meeting in the mid-1990s, they have crossed paths and shared the stage together countless times over the past 25 years. Both are Grammy award-winning artists who together have worked with a vast array of both classic and current musical artists.
During the New Orleans Jazz Fest in May of 2022, the two discussed the possibility of working together on a more regular basis with a consolidated project in mind. Together, they came up with the concept of making an organ trio record of covers that would be a tribute to women in music. The record would focus on female artists and the endless amount of incredible music they have gifted the world.
Without wasting any time, this new dynamic duo started picking songs and working on demos with accomplished organist Eric Finland. The result is a collection of nine songs covering the works of Amy Winehouse, Nina Simone, Billie Eilish, Sharon Jones, H.E.R., Kacey Musgraves, Brittany Howard, Peggy Lee, and Aretha Franklin. The record sounds classic, yet fresh… at once vaguely familiar, yet quite unlike anything you’ve ever heard.
Krasno has released twelve Soulive albums, four Lettuce albums, three solo albums, and has production and/or songwriting credit with Norah Jones, Robert Randolph, Pretty Lights, Talib Kweli, 50 Cent, Aaron Neville, Allen Stone and Ledisi. As a dynamic performer, he’s shared stages with The Rolling Stones, The Dave Matthews Band, John Mayer, and The Roots.
Moore has released eight records under his own name, eleven records with Galactic and four records with Garage-a-Trois. He has worked with Maceo Parker, Joss Stone, Macy Gray, Irma Thomas, Tom Morello (Rage Against the Machine), Corrosion of Conformity, Nicholas Payton, Trombone Shorty, and others.
