One of the hardest tasks in creating an album is naming it. I know that might sound odd, but it is what it is. This time it was not the case. "Still Euge", my tenth solo project (why are we so enamored at whole numbers like that?), perfectly sums up my feelings while making this disc. First, "Still" represents me being able to be me! What I was going fo on the album is exactly what I was going for 16 years ago when Euge Groove came out. It's smooth jazz and I'm proud to call it that".
From the first note, Lindsey Webster captivates listeners. Her rich, soulful voice enchants a dedicated following who connect with the raw emotion she shares with them. As a Soul R&B artist, she combines an admirable natural talent with a genuine, accessible stage presence.
It has been an exciting past year for Guitarist Adam Hawley, who’s debut record “Just The Beginning” was released on March 18. All three of Adam’s singles have topped the charts to become #1 hits.
And, Adam has been named both Smooth Jazz News and JazzTrax Debut Artist of the Year.
