CD review: John Di Martino, Janis Siegel – Cryin’ in My Whiskey 2021: Video, CD cover

Night is Alive is thrilled to release Cryin’ In My Whiskey, a cross-genre collaboration that brings together country western and jazz in the very best way possible.

Cryin’ In My Whiskey has something for everyone, mingling the two genres in a way that still preserves the essence of the nine country tunes.

This is one special release you won’t want to miss!

“It is arguably a risk to combine country and jazz on one album, but “Cryin’ In My Whiskey” effortlessly amalgamates both genres in a setlist of familiar country favorites. Led by Siegel’s powerful vocals, the clear narrative often associated with country music weaves itself throughout the album, creating a great combination of emotions for the listener.”
