Tea’s new release “Grand Cru” is an electro-pop album with many influences, jazz, lounge and soul, and includes legendary keyboardist and “the godfather of Acid Jazz,” special guest Brian Auger. After producing Auger’s recent solo album “Language of the Heart,” Tea has continued the collaboration. “Brian has been a big inspiration in the development of the songs of the new album, the color and energy…his sound is a signature and we think it fits well in Tea’s world.” The 11-song release features Sabrina Williams, a soul singer and poet in Los Angeles and Inès Murer, an Austrian-Belgian singer/songwriter living in France.
