Liner Notes

The first time I heard her voice coming from a practice room I just had to go and find out who it belonged to.  It was my introduction to Esther Satterfield.

Since then, I've listened and watched with pleasure as this lady has captured the affection of audiences wherever she appears.

And now her first album - a recording where Esther shares with us the many musical and emotional directions she handles so well.

Arrangers are often called upon musically do dress up a vocal by adding all kinds of instruments and sounds.  There are few voices so pure, so distinct, that one dares to let them stand alone - naked.  Esther's is the exception.

Listen now to Esther Satterfield - one of the finest - and most unique singers happening today.
