"The music on this CD is for all ages and, I hope, a wide range of tastes. Adults and children alike need beauty and love, and this is what I have tried to record. I''ve used different genres - jazz, pop, country-style, classical, and so on. For me, beautiful music is simply beautiful music, whatever the style."
"One of the nicest voices I''ve ever recorded."
- Alan Goldwater, sound engineer over 20 years
Merrill Leffmann has always been encouraged to sing because of the sheer beauty of her voice. Listeners tell of a peace they feel, just hearing her.
She sang folk and jazz, and then studied opera and art song while receiving a M.A in Music. Not content with the limitations of the classical style, Merrill returned to lessons for musical theater, cabaret and pop. What Merrill has found is that each style has its attractions, and what she really likes is the ability to sing however the moment demands. Merrill creates one-woman shows and currently performs in the Phoenix area both alone and in other productions.
Her lullaby album, "The Oasis", was created and honed during hours (and hours and hours...) of singing lullabies for her daughter. Those songs included were the especially potent ones - those that left both daughter and husband fast asleep (both) or deeply relaxed (him). Others who hear the music report similar experiences. Massage therapists also play it to good effect with their clients.
"I hope the music in this album brings you joy and peace. Thank you for listening."
