“Late in 2018, my sensational musical director, Bill Cunliffe, brought me an original song he wrote entitled “Shared Lives”. It was simply divine, and I began plans to record it at Capitol Records. As the album started to take shape, I realized that it was a great title track. And what better way to enhance this fresh and one-of-a-kind number than to assemble a set of tracks sharing the limelight with some of the world class musicians that I have had the auspicious opportunity to collaborate with over the past couple of years. So, we set off to feature an incredible instrumentalist on each track of the album, sharing our lives in making music.” -Andy James, Vocalist. Over the course of the album, you’ll hear from not only her most prized collaborator, her music director, arranger, and pianist: Grammy Award-winner, and Emmy-nominee Bill Cunliffe. You’ll also hear featured duets with Jake Langlei; Ernie Watts; Rick Margitza; Terell Stafford; the original Chuck Berghofer on my cover of the Nancy Sinatra hit, “these Boots Are Made for Walkin’;” and Brandon Fields.
