You’ve Got Me
“You’ve Got Me is an easy pleasure, with a playful, inviting, upbeat-with-a-twist-of-edgy vibe. It seems to say, “hey, come hang out, share some wine, talk about life with me.” Of course her voice is HER VOICE. Warm, lush, and perfectly delicious. Classically trained, and at the same time real and down to earth. There’s something elemental about this effort. Earthy vocals, with a fresh air feel, these songs stretch freely like a wildfire, but remain fluid and together as a collection, much like a body of water.” Alaya Wyndham-Price, Oregon Music News
Naomi LaViolette’s debut self-titled album features ten original songs, with an acoustic niche between the worlds of folk singer-songwriter and jazz soulstress. “Naomi’s music is intimate, welcoming, and cozy. In the moment. This debut album is full of unexpected textures and turns, both in the instrumentation and dynamics. The lyrics evoke one’s own experience but through a Naomi-lense.” Inessa, KINK.fm. Producer Dean Baskerville (Sheryl Crow, Everclear, Pink Martini) describes her sound: “If Sarah McLachlan and Norah Jones took a road trip down the Oregon Coast, they’d come back with songs that sound like this.”
Naomi LaViolette presents her holiday single, “Noel”, recorded in collaboration with violinist Aaron Meyer and an ensemble of vocalists from the Oregon Repertory Singers and Portland State University choirs. “Noel” is Naomi’s unique arrangement of the traditional 18th century English carol “The First Noel”. She blends Celtic and Middle Eastern melodic styles with a robust harmonization and lush instrumentation. The recording is consistent with Naomi’s musical blend of vintage and current sounds.
