Thea Ennen & The Algorhytms – All Aboard
ALL ABOARD is the long-awaited CD debut of original songs from singer/pianist Thea Ennen. Recorded in the Twin Cities at Studio M, Metro Studios and at Paisley Park, she and her band, The Algorhythms, have delivered a collection of songs that won them a Minnesota Music Award. The sessions also feature some of the finest players, such as Willie Murphy, Gordy Knudtsen, Jim Price, Gordy Johnson and Dan Newton. Cake Magazine says..."ALL ABOARD is brimming with outstanding production and beautifully flowing lyrics and melodies. These are songs that beckon to be played again and again." Jim Walsh, Music Editor for Minneapolis City Pages writes... "Ennen's piano-driven songs are warm, dramatic, folkie to be sure, but in every sense of the word, this is soul music!"
