The ever-evolving⁠ — and expanding⁠ — Shelly Rudolph’s story continues onward and upward with the release of her latest album, the ambitious and atmospheric The Way We Love. Soul-jazz-pop chanteuse Rudolph has long been a favored voice around her hometown of Portland, Oregon, and musical travels have taken her to New York, Los Angeles, the West Indies, Japan, Korea and beyond. She has been dubbed a “robust and captivating vocalist” by Jazz Times and the LA Weekly praised her ability to use her “honey-glazed throat to send chills up and down your spine.”

Now, from the original music/poetess corner of her creative life, Rudolph follows up on her more “world soul”-oriented album Water in My Hand with The Way We Love, a unique and lyrical new song set featuring legendary, ECM Records-connected cellist David Darling. Darling’s layered cello textures blend with a subtle palette of piano-bass-guitar and cameos from soprano saxist Devin Phillips. Among the highlights on The Way We Love are an inventively re-harmonized version of “Stand By Me,” a sweetly soulful duet with Redray Frazier on “Slow Life,” and gospel-tinged opening and closing tracks, “Close Enough” and “Calling Me Home.” Long a poet as well as a songstress, the album showcases her poetic and sensual expressivity on “The Way with Love,” spoken against a sumptuous bed of Darling’s cello tones.

With this latest album, Shelly Rudolph is poised to rise in the ranks of voices of the must-hear caliber, on a global scale.
