Stevie Holland
Almost Like Being in Love

Almost Like Being in Love


5 out of 5 stars I can’t get you out of my heart

Stevie Holland’s vivacious voice is well suited to these romantic selections. Her smooth, sexy voice glides effortlessly over the jazzy accompaniment by pianist Jesse Green (son of jazz great Urbie Green).

Her voice has a delicate beauty that mingles with a sultry side filled with emotion. You believe she means every word because each inflection of her voice absolutely reflects the meanings.

Standards like “Autumn in New York” have never come across so beautifully and “Isn’t It a Pity” has never sounded this sultry. The sheer urgency of passion in “Could It Be Magic” is sexy and yet contemplative.

“The dearest things I know are what you are
Some day my happy arms will hold you
and someday I’ll know that moment…
All that I want in all of this world is you.”

~All The Things You Are

All the songs on this CD were developed from Stevie’s recent New York cabaret engagement at Danny's Skylight Room.

Stevie Holland has sold out shows at Westbank’s Laurie Beechman Theatre and her previous recordings include “Do You Ever Dream?” and “This Is America.”

There are two original love songs on this CD. “I Will Remember You” was written by Stevie and her husband, composer Gary William Friedman. “Errant Hero” is from DREAM MOUNTAIN, a musical.

Once you hear this CD, it will be impossible to get the memory of Stevie Holland’s voice out of your heart. The only thing better than owning this CD would be seeing her sing in person.

“Almost Like Being in Love” presents mood music with meaningful lyrics to create a nostalgic environment for a dreamy evening.

A Promising Musical Kiss of Rare Beauty.
