Via email, keyboardist Greg Worzel tells StLJN that he's launching a new independent jazz label called Prospect Records. Based in the St. Louis suburb of O'Fallon, MO, the new imprint will make its debut with Like Someone In Love, the first recording from 17-year-old vocalist Emily Nicole (pictured).
Worzel has worked previously with singer Anita Rosamond and produced her CD Timeless. He's also the producer of Nicole's debut, which will be introduced at a CD release party that will be held from 6:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. next Wednesday, July 15 at Jive and Wail, 6101 Mid Rivers Mall Dr. in St. Peters.
Nicole's singing experience to date includes musical theater productions at Francis Howell HS in St. Charles, performances with the Patt Holt Singers choral group, and a featured spot with Worzel's Rhythm of the Nite band. Audio samples from Like Someone In Love are available on her (rather minimal at present) Web site.
