Russian-American songstress, Elizaveta, is releasing an iTunes Session EP this morning and for the first time iTunes is also including a live video for each song recorded during the session. We have a peek of the EP opener, “Meant,” showing the singer off at the piano, her pretty head decorated with headphones, full of flowers and vocal power.
“When I arrived at Capitol Studios, I was told that it was Paul McCartney who did the iTunes Live Session the previous week — right there in studio A,” Elizaveta beamed. “Needless to say, I was quite intimidated! Also a year prior I was able to be there, in studio A, watching my producer Greg Wells work with Burt Bacharach on his record. I thought ‘Oh, I would love to record in here.’ And a year later almost to the day — I did. And with strings! So dreams do come true.”
The songs on the Session EP are five selections from Elizaveta’s acclaimed debut album, “Beatrix Runs,” plus a sixth track, a cover of George Michael’s “Hand to Mouth.” Elizaveta opened for Sinead O’Connor in the UK and will be performing July 20th at Rockwood Music Hall in NYC and July 26th at The WitzEnd in LA.
