Seung-Hee

From Seoul, South Korea, and now living in Brooklyn, Seung-Hee is calling attention to her unique voice and striking talent with standout composing, writing and arrangements. A graduate of Berklee College of Music and the New England Conservatory of Music after first studying French literature, she will be releasing a new album, 'Sketches on the Sky하늘에 그린 그림'. Seung-Hee is a bold, adventurous artist who sings in Korean, English, Portuguese and contributes very distinctive vocalizing on Sketches on the Sky하늘에 그린 그림. The CD features four original compositions including the title track and lyrics she wrote to Charlie Haden’s “Bohm So Ri” and Bill Evans’ “An Eliptical Note,” staking her claim on these artist’s compositions. She illuminates two lesser-known songs by Sting and Stevie Wonder with “Valparaiso” and “Visions,” in addition to taking on “Pra Dizer Adeus,” by Edu Lobo/Torquato Neto. She closes the recording with a poignant version of the Korean children’s song, “By the Sea.” Artist John McNeil co-produced the project.

These elements come together exceptionally well as on the title track, where the singer's voice is a finely tuned instrument, singing a stunning wordless melody followed by verses in Korean, as her quintet performs sumptuous music. It's the arrangement of Irving Berlin's “How Deep is the Ocean” that further proves this band
