Eleanor Dubinsky has found the tender edge where jazz, world, and pop sensibilities meet emotionally forthright songwriting. In this highly anticipated CD release concert, Dubinsky presents her new album Soft Spot Of My Heart, laid down in studios in Lisbon, Portugal and NYC over the course of 2017. A globally savvy collection of songs highlighting Eleanor's potent vocals and embracing the musical colors and influences of a diverse group of collaborators from Portugal, NYC, Cape Verde and Brazil, Soft Spot Of My Heart draws from a variety of musical influences including gospel, folk, jazz, Latin and Luso-African. To underline her uplifting message, Eleanor welcomes special guests from Brooklyn based contemporary gospel ensemble Greg Stamper Stamper & Soul21, who also make a noteworthy appearance on her new record.
"Vocalist Eleanor Dubinsky is slowly, but steadily, building a body of work that consists of elegant and thoughtful songwriting that slides easily between genres and geography through top-notch musicianship, all in service to a voice that stopped me in my tracks when I first heard it. Her new album, Soft Spot Of My Heart, is her strongest work yet." - Felix Contreras, NPR Music’s Alt.Latino
"Dubinsky is a multilingual musician who can capture the emotions and soul of a community in a song." - NPR Weekend Edition
