Violinist and vocalist Yvette Cornelia writes adventurous chamber folk songs, enlivened by her crafted string arrangements. Her latest release of original work "What Lies Ahead" is performed by a nine-piece ensemble of female vocal trio, clarinet, strings, and rhythm section. These songs take a listener on a captivating journey that explores dichotomies between freedom and control – wild natural forces and disciplined human will – flow states and measured time.
Straddling the line between highly arranged forms (classical chamber, pop) and more improvised styles (jazz, folk), Cornelia’s unconventional songwriting delightfully surprises. There is an alluring feeling of open possibility. She delivers universal questions with intimacy and emotional complexity – sensing both the light and dark in the unknown.
