Needle Drop: Ashley Wilson, “Paint the Sky”

San Francisco songbird Ashley Wilson’s debut album Paint the Sky conjures up the smooth quality of Come Away with Me-era Norah Jones.

Not only is Wilson versed in the technical and intuitive nuances of jazz singing, but she has a similar ability to conjure up lasting melodies that form like cumulus clouds, hovering in your head for days on end.

The title-track off the LP, streaming here, is perfect example of her mellifluous touch. Floating atop a refined bed of strummed electric guitar and twinkling drums, Wilson’s vocal guides us to a place of mellow surrender, while she lovingly plants her plaintive call to give a romance a chance to bloom. This tender gem, along with 10 other original tracks, will be featured on Ashley’s Paint the Sky LP, due out March 1st.
