About Tanya Leah’s new (and ongoing) “WORK IN PROGRESS” album
Someone very wise once told me that the reason it’s called a “record” or an “album” is because the music you are putting into the world is a snapshot of where you are in that exact moment of your existence. I have withheld too much of my work because I felt it was less than perfect. But it will always be so – there will always be a potentially better version up ahead, no matter how much farther along the road I go. (That goes for me too, apparently)…
So I am reaching into the past (and present, and hopefully even into the future) and sharing some of these songs and demos just as they are. I intend to release them like birds – peacocks and pigeons alike – to fly or fall as they may.
Thank you for being here – keep flying…xot

“Suddenly I” is a song of survival – getting through a break-up, a loss, a pandemic, etc… I recorded this worktape at home….I’m planning to flesh it out some more, get my nephew, Reid, to play some real trumpet on it, and mix it better…but it has a vibe, so I’m sharing. No more withholding – Hope you like it.
Would love to hear what you think…
