"A joyous, uplifting and deeply generous performance...just the tonic for the frayed nerves of many New Yorkers after another long winter in these parlous times. Go. See her. This is music as medicine for your soul."
- Tom Pryor (Songlines, Afropop Worldwide)
New York City based songstress Eleanor Dubinsky has found the tender edge where jazz, world, and pop sensibilities meet emotionally forthright songwriting. Composing in English, French and Spanish, the indie songstress is noted for her soothing, sultry vocals, enlivened by Latin, Brazilian, American and West African rhythms.
Soft Spot Of My Heart, Dubinsky’s third album, is a globally savvy collection of tracks that foreground her emotional honesty and voice while fully embracing the musical colors and influences of a diverse group of collaborators from Portugal, NYC, Cape Verde and Brazil. This special 15th anniversary concert marks the premiere of Eleanor's 4 Elements Acoustic Quartet. She is joined by bandmates Michael O'Brien (bass), Mayra Casales (percussion/vocals) and Frank Ponzio (keys) in an intimate presentation of her original songs.
