In Her WordsLucy Yeghiazaryan and Vanisha Gould

“…melodies with an exquisitely tempered, full-bodied voice tailor-made for illuminating the great torch songs of a bygone era” – DownBeat

Called “one of the most compelling and ambitious jazz vocal albums of the year” by JazzWax, up and coming New York-based vocalists Lucy Yeghiazaryan and Vanisha Gould’s collaborative 2021 release In Her Words is described as an “unabashedly intimate recording offering a glimpse into the private lives of women told from their unique perspectives”. A mix of new compositions and interpretations of jazz standards, each artist simultaneously breaks new ground while referencing the past with their warm, 1950’s inspired vocal styles.

The lineup:
Lucy Yeghiazaryan – vocals
Vanisha Gould – vocals
Dan Pappalardo – Bass 
Eric Zolan – guitar 
Ludovica Burtone – violin
Kate Victor – cello
