About the album:
The Juno award-winning Emilie-Claire Barlow is now clearly established as one of our very best jazz vocalists. She has also developed into an ace arranger, and both talents coalesce to stunning effect on Clear Day, the most ambitious offering yet in a prolific discography (it's her 11th album). Her interpretive gifts and pure vocals are displayed in fresh versions of tunes from a wide range of artists (Joni Mitchell, Paul Simon and Van Morrison to Coldplay, David Bowie and Queen, and Pat Metheny). All the songs were chosen to help tell the chronological story of a recent emotionally turbulent period in her life. Barlow and co-producer Steve Webster recruited Amsterdam's world-renowned 70-piece Metropole Orkest (Elvis Costello) and conductor Jules Buckley to bring some of these songs a gloriously rich orchestral sound. Two of them were arranged by John Metcalfe (Peter Gabriel's Scratch My Back). Elite T.O. players and backing singers featured include Reg Schwager, Jon Maharaj, Larnell Lewis, Webster, Chris Donnelly, Kelly Johnson, Melanie Doane and Kathryn Rose.

Emilie-Claire Barlow - Canadian jazz singer, was born in a family of musicians, June 6, 1976. Her mother was a singer Judy Tate, and her father, percussionist Brian Barlow, played in a famous big band "Boss Brass". Of course, and their daughter studied music (piano, violin, clarinet). Emilie-Claire spent 5 years in "Etobicoke School of the Arts", studying musical theater and dance course. Then he continued his studies at the prestigious college "Humber College", specializing in music theory and arrangement.

During college singer gathered jazz quartet and began performing around Toronto. In autumn 1998, Barlow released their first CD - "Emilie-Claire Barlow Sings". In 2008, Emilie-Claire Barlow became the owner of awards "National Jazz Awards" in the category "Female Vocalist of the Year" ( "Female Singer of the Year"), it has its own record label "Empress Music Group Inc.", and it has worked and in voicing animated series.

At the writing of a new, 11-th in a row disc 'Clear Day' Barlow took three years. The momentum for the album gave her a trip to Nunavut - the northernmost, isolated and thinly populated area of Canada - the icebreaker CCGS 'Amundsen'. As written in the press release of the trip "turned her whole life." Recorded nine tracks of fourteen was a Dutch Orchestra Metropol (in an expanded format of 70 people instead of the usual 52-x), conductor Jules Buckley (Jules Buckley). Among the compositions of jazz standards, music The Beatles, Queen, Coldplay, Brad Mehldau, Pat Metheny and others.
