When you are an actress, a scriptwriter and a jazz singer, not to mention a mother, a friend, a lover and plenty else besides, how do you describe yourself? As Ada Morghe, Alexandra Helmig has the answer. Don´t put her in a box.
This is the inspiration of Ada Morghe´s current journey - a jazzy, soulful, deeply personal and suitably titled second album BOX, which will be released on August 14th 2020.
BOX stretches from the tight, upbeat funk of "Wake up" to the melancholic elegance of "Rainy Day", or the jazz seduction of "Sugar Lips", a perfect vehicle for the warmth and smokiness of her voice, and the romantic Parisian spirit of "Water lilies", which echoes Edith Piaf and Juliette Gréco. Another highlight, "BOX", was co-written with a kindred spirit of the shape of Roachford. Ending with the beautiful "Demons", an orchestral epic with shades of Scott Walker and a message of self-acceptance, BOX marks a true coming of age.
"Relaxed pop songs, expressively formed by Ada Morghe with her deep voice and cleverly set in scene by her producer Hans-Martin Buff. The songs were all written by Ms Morghe herself – including the very fine “Silver Dust” – she seems to be a real all-rounder." (JAZZTHING 2019)
