Sunset Avenue is Gina Sicilia's newest EP. On her sixth studio release,Gina manages to raise the bar even further. Recording in her native Philadelphia by Grammy-winning producer Glenn Barratt, the album showcases her inimitable, distinct vocals as she throws down a musical gauntlet of soul, power, grit and energy for others to follow.
Critically acclaimed singer-songwriter Gina Sicilia traveled to Muscle Shoals, Alabama, to soak up the Southern Soul vibe and realign her musical compass for THE ALABAMA SESSIONS. This self-produced 5-song EP is Gina's fifth release with the VizzTone label group, featuring her powerful, sultry vocals over five brand-new original compositions.
"...Sounding like a Petri dish mixture of mature Maria Muldaur and mature Bonnie Raitt, this mostly original set is going to force the blues world to take notice of Sicilia all over again as she adds the rhythm to the blues and brings on the soul. A solid set from a vocalist with real chops that just keep getting honed sharper, contemporary blues vocal fans will find this set indispensable. Killer stuff throughout."
