Every now and again you come across a particular piece of music that changes the way you look at the world around you. What was once mundane becomes new and exciting, and the stresses in life that demand so much of your time are recognized for the follies they are and replaced with something exponentially better. I have found this rare and wonderful combination in the music of Selina Albright. Her newest album Conversations is, in a word, Brilliant. The album is an emotional journey that everyone can relate to. The moving lyrics speak of love and loss, failure and redemption, when to let go and walk away, and when to stop questioning and simply accept the happiness in front of you. It's not often an artist is so candid about their lives and life experiences, which is why this album has captured the attention of so many. The stories Selina tells are from her own experiences making each song that much more endearing. From youth to present day, Selina tells us of her determination to find her own identity, edging away from the shadow of her successful father and finding her own individual musical sound. I had the pleasure of speaking with Selina about these topics. And to hear the passion and conviction in her voice was nothing short of enlightening. She spoke of the family who helped guide her and how fortunate she's been to have a village of people who were instrumental in helping her become the person she is today. She also spoke of the importance of being authentic. “Be true to yourself,” Selina told me, “Be original. You have to own your story before you get the glory.” However, what struck me most about my conversation with Selina is how much loving and being loved has transformed her life; two seemingly innocuous things that have uncovered forgotten touchstones in the Smooth Jazz and R&B community. This, too, is present in her music, evident in songs such as Victim, Search My Name, and Eat Something. Conversations is a soulful and intimate journey through the human experience; combined with extraordinary talent, it is certain to become an anthem for all things possible.
