Duo plays new songs

Maureen Washington and Daniel Cook will play songs from their new album this Saturday.

Canadian recording artists Maureen Washington and Daniel Cook will play songs from their new album as they begin a Canadian tour at the Flying Canoe West Coast Pub in Courtenay this Saturday.

Some of Washington’s accolades include: 2011 Winner of Monday Magazine M Award for Best Jazz & Blues Artist or Group and 2011 Nominee for Vancouver Island Music Awards Female Vocalist of the Year.

With a vocal style that encompasses the soul of Etta James, and Carmen McRae, the modernity of Holly Cole and the playfulness of Jann Arden, Washington evokes comparison to some of the great female Jazz singers of our time yet remains one of a kind.

Maureen’s voice captures the romance of popular ‘standards’ from the past with a fresh new sound and style. The vocals are warm, deep and pure.

The Victoria-based singer takes you on a journey of stories of love gone right and love gone wrong. She is impressive and enchanting; you’ll be drawn away by the pure soul that resonates in her music from her own personal life.

As a collaborating songwriter, Maureen has brought her heart and soul to the music page, in ‘one’ of her newest albums of originals, co-written with Cook.

Here we Go Again is a mixture of songs of relationships gone good and bad. The album is eclectic in music styles featuring, jazz, blues, Latin, reggae etc. Cook and Washington call their music style Funkified Urban Jazz.

Maureen entertains audiences and gains their attention and respect by her honest, humble approach. She is extremely warm, funny and approachable. By the end of the evening you feel that you have found a new best friend.
