Title - I Don’t Mind Missing You
Artist - Lady Millea
For those unaware, we are thrilled to aid in the promotion of the first CD featuring recently discovered chanteuse, Lady Millea.
As part of an amazing two CD package promotional release, we’re once again faced with a bona fide mystery: Where did this equally unknown and elegant musical ingenue come from and why have we never heard of her?
We’re convinced that in the ensuing weeks and months we won’t be the only ones asking this artistically pertinent question, given that it comes on the back of the upcoming J. Frederick Millea (aka L.A. Cowboy) CD The Big Pitch.
Boutique label Reconcile Records was formed as a creative vehicle through which to purvey timeless, world-class, lyric-driven songs framed by outstanding musical performances.
This CD I Don’t Mind Missing You (out August 15th, 2021 via Reconcile Records) provides additional evidence of their quest, as well as further confirmation of their professional capacity to deliver the goods.
While initially formed to showcase the talented temerity of LA. Cowboy, they’ve decided, on a very limited basis, to expose and exhibit extraordinary talent when it corresponds with the core vision of the label.
Fortunately they have an entire catalog of eclectic virgin songs, that are at once original and refreshing, displaying intellectual depth seasoned bon vivant, raconteur and reluctant industry rebel, the aforementioned J. Frederick Millea to draw from.
So yes, it is certainly thrilling to release this first CD by songstress extraordinaire, Lady Millea. We’re confident her heart-melting voice combining poignant purity with a sultry sophistication something akin to Sarah Vaughn meets Karen Carpenter will redefine the current musical standard for unassuming elegance.
Sprinkle it all with the mystique of a gracious, almost other-wordly angel on assignment and you have a sonic masterpiece fit to entertain and enthrall, as well as elevate, enrich and enlighten everyone from plain folks to the most discriminating connoisseurs.
So who is this mysterious woman with the mystifying voice? As our ensuing international promotion campaign unfolds we’ll just have to find that out together.
Reconcile Records has certainly proven thus far to be full of amazing surprises. With such an unprecedented initial showing as their first twos releases, we can only begin to envision what they might have ins tore.
At this point the record label appears to be in total lockstep with their mission statement, which simply reads: Music that stimulates the mind as well as the senses.
