[streaming] Kesang Marstrand – Something To Prove You Right

Kesang Marstrand, is a native of Woodstock, New York, got her start performing her songs in pubs and cafés in Greenwhich Village. The Tibetan-Danish singer, inspired by songwriters such as Leonard Cohen, Joni Mitchell, and Elliott Smith, honed her songwriting skills throughout her early twenties and recorded her debut album, “Bodega Rose” in the fall of 2008. That same year the singer released a single, entitled, “Tibet Will Be Free.”

AllMusic calls Marstrand an, “unusually gifted singer and composer” and describes her songs as, “eloquent emotional sketches.”

“Hello Night,” the singer’s second album, comprised twelve original lullabies, and was described by Warren Truitt as “touching and playful, mysterious and warm, and is certainly one of the most beautiful lullaby albums you’ll ever hear.” It was selected by About.com for their top ten list of best kids’ music of 2009.

In 2011, Marstrand released her third album, “Our Myth.” Produced by renowned jazz musician and composer Karl Berger, the album was acclaimed by European audiences during Marstrand’s tour in 2012. Kesang Marstrand’s first recording in Tibetan “Karmapa Khyeno” was released in 2014. It was “made with the simple intention of creating songs which allow one to linger in a quiet, open space, somewhere where the contemplation of matters of heart is encouraged.”

“Something To Prove You Right” is taken from Kesang Marstrand’s new album, “For My Love”, out today and available via https://kesangmarstrand.bandcamp.com/album/for-my-love. It is also featured as the current “single of the week” of the radio show L’Attimo Fuggente.
