Audiophile Masters X

This reference-style album takes us on a journey of classic covers done by modern artists. Kyle Donovan’s voice soars on Simple Man by Leonard Skynard, blends beautifully with the vocals of Kate Farmer on Van Morrison’s Crazy Love and Can’t Help Falling in Love and gives us a simple yet elegant performance on John Lennon’s Imagine with Pamela Machala on piano accompaniment. Tim Ostdiek and Jenny Balagna create beautiful harmonies on well-loved classics, Angel From MontgomeryMake You Feel My LoveUp Above My Head, and Cecilia. One of our favorite Octave artists, Alicia Straka, closes out the album with her quartet on Let’s Fall In Love and Beyond The Sea.
