Overview: Ã¢â‚¬Å“Somewhere in BlueÃ¢â‚¬Â is the debut full-length CD by Deena Shoshkes, lead singer/guitarist for The Cucumbers.
The sounds on Ã¢â‚¬Å“Somewhere in BlueÃ¢â‚¬Â are a unique blend of new wave rockabilly, country and folk rock, filtered through DeenaÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s long-time indie pop sensibilities.
Songs written with Tennessee-based lyricist David Graham (four of which appear on the CD) led Deena into country music, old and new, and southern rock, and inspired a new voice and direction in DeenaÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s solo songwriting as well.
Recorded in Nashville, with producer Roger Moutenot (Yo La Tengo, Josh Rouse) and New Jersey, with The Laughing Boys, Tom Lucas and Ed Iglewski, the recordings bridge the distance between DeenaÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s roots in New Jersey music (from Hoboken indie pop to the Jersey shore) and alt country Americana.
Deena's songwriting has been called "direct and artful," by the New York Times. Her voice has been described Artist Site
