Pianist and composer Amanda Tosoff continues to take creative and stylistic leaps with her latest album Earth Voices.

Coming in January, the new recording is the follow-up to her Juno-nominated album Words. Taking inspiration from poetry, Tosoff uses her gifts for composition and arrangement to make personal and emotional connections that resonate in her music.

Earth Voices features a stellar lineup of Toronto-based musicians along with seven guest vocalists, including two songs performed by two-time Juno winner Emilie-Claire Barlow. The album is also being released by Barlow’s record label, Empress Music.

Tosoff and Barlow both joined us to talk about Earth Voices and their years’ worth of collaborations.
