You know Laura Fernandez as the host of Café Latino, but you may also know her as an accomplished singer and songwriter.

She has just released her third album called Okay, Alright. It arrives a full 10 years after her last release, Un Solo Beso. 

Blending pop, jazz and classical influences, Okay, Alright is a collection of deeply intimate and affectionate original songs that span two decades of her songwriting. While some of these tunes were written recently, others have lived in her heart for more than 15 years.

For Okay, Alright, she was joined by bassist George Koller and drummer Marito Marques. The album was co-produced by Peter Moore with guidance from Howard Gladstone.

Laura Fernandez joined us to talk about the making of Okay, Alright, and why the album was a much-needed outlet for her creative expression.
