The East Coast CD release show will take place December 3 at the Brooklyn Lyceum.

Shop of Wild Dreams is "original, soulful, and entirely unpredictable - call it jazz as that's the only genre big enough to contain it but listen for influences from East European choral singing to roots American country gospel to deep groovin' funky hip hop beats."

Thanks jam base for covering such an obscure artist. Jessica lays it on so thick, and to be backed up with joe doria, andy coe, and ollie will be a treat. See you at the lucky lounge.

Yeah, used to love the Living Daylights. She's stoked to be hooked up with Todd Sickafoose for production and bass. He's an old friend and is sick on the bass.
