Rebecca Pidgeon, the acclaimed Scottish actress, has also displayed her talents as a singer/songwriter on several well-received albums. Taking elements from folk, pop, jazz, and Celtic traditions, Pidgeon crafts lilting, intimate poetry.
Pidgeon's first Chesky release, 1994's The Raven, is most notable for her stunning version of "Spanish Harlem." Reflective yet contemporary, Rebecca's lovely voice rings with honest, unpretentious confidence and vivid tenderness. While her Celtic melodies set the mood, her lyrics tell stories, full, rich, textured, and open hearted.
The album has gone on to become an audiophile classic, thanks to her crystalline voice and Chesky's high-fidelity recording techniques. Now The Raven returns as a lavish 180-gram vinyl reissue, plated and pressed at Quality Record Pressings. This album is among Chesky Record's most striking, powerful and fully realized vocal records to date.
