Call 901- for more informationGrowing up in Copenhagen, Michael Lington remembers the precise moment he decided he needed tomove to America if he was going to seriously pursue a career in music. He was still a budding musician atthe time, who loved several different genres: jazz, pop, R&B and more—as a young boy he’d even metthe American swing legend Benny Goodman. But it wasn’t until he was on the verge of turning 20 thatLington—now recognized as one of the most creative and successful contemporary soul and jazzsaxophonists in the world—made his fateful decision. “I loved that contemporary sax was so versatile inall styles of music: funk, jazz, R&B, pop,” Lington says, but soul music hit him most directly. “It’s hard todescribe why something in particular is meaningful to a person, but soul music spoke to me very earlyon in my life—it’s just a feeling and reaction I had when I would hear it.” Michael Lington is releasingSilver Lining, his 10th solo album, the follow-up to 2016’s critically acclaimed Second Nature. SilverLining features mostly original compositions by Lington and producer/co-arranger/keyboardist BarryEastmond, as well as a pair of stunning, choice covers.www.michaellington.comSelina Albright is a soulful singer-songwriter with versatility that comes from years of listening to manyorigins and languages of music.
