2023 ADULT CONTEMPORARY ALBUM OF THE YEAR | Marc Jordan & Amy Sky | | The JUNO Awards

Though they have been married 34 years, He Sang. She Sang. is the first duo album from critically acclaimed and commercially successful Toronto singer/songwriters Marc Jordan and Amy Sky. To be released on Linus – add date this is a superbly-curated collection of songs that combines fresh takes on some beloved classics and original compositions. The covers include songs by Tom Petty (“Free Falling,” the first single), The Beach Boys Smokey Robinson, Willie Nelson, Bonnie Raitt, Richard Thompson, and Frank Loesser. There is an appealing diversity in the song selection, with tunes from rock, pop, soul, folk, and Americana genres. The new original material (primarily from Sky) explores matters of the heart in insightful and compelling ways. All the songs are given vibrant life here via performance in a duets format by two masterful vocalists. Jordan, well-schooled in the jazz vocal tradition, is a virtuoso of phrasing, bringing lyrics to life in subtly understated fashion. Sky possesses a rich and mellow alto voice, one brimming with emotional expressiveness.
