Album Notes


Girl in the Band is Vecchione’s triumphant sequel to her impressive debut album, Deeper Waters. Release on Vecchione’s indie imprint Selkie Records, Girl in the Band was recorded in Nashville and Boston with an all-star cast of seasoned session players including George Marinelli (Bonnie Raitt) on electric guitar.

Mixed primarily by multi-Grammy-Award winner Jim Scott (Tom Petty, Wilco, The Dixie Chicks) the album shines with Vecchione’s unique balance of pop-appeal and gravitas, and  generated buzz and acclaim.
