On Nothing But Love, her soulful and timeless song-cycle of folk, pop, world, blues, reggae, and jazz-tinged originals, singer-songwriter Jana Herzen (who happens also to head up the Multi-GRAMMY®- winning Motéma label,) reaches new heights as a musical storyteller, composer, and guitarist. Supported by an ace band led by world-renowned jazz bassist Charnett Moffett, Herzen’s poetic groove-solid songs surprise at each turn as they juxtapose isolation, loss, and melancholy, alongside eye-winking fun, romantic abandon and deep soul redemption.
Herzen will perform at The Jazz Sanctuary with bassist Charnett Moffett (co-producer of her album) and drummer Corey Garcia. Herzen and Moffett will also preview some songs from their upcoming duo project, ‘Round the World (out 5.29.20 on Motema)
Herzen’s sophisticated style has been compared to such artists as Eva Cassidy, Susanne Vega, Sting, Leonard Cohen, Paul Simon, Bonnie Raitte. Shawn Colvin, Joni Mitchell, Norah Jones, Melody Gardot, Carole King, Karen Carpenter and even Bob Marley.
