Possessing a voice as cool and crystalline as an Alpine stream, Natalie Cressman is a rising singer/songwriter and trombonist who draws inspiration from a vast array of deep and powerful musical currents. In April 2019, she released her 5th album Setting Rays of Summer in collaboration with Brazilian composer, guitarist and vocalist Ian Faquini, drawing from impressionism, jazz, and the great Brazilian songwriting tradition. With the warm instrumentation of acoustic guitar and trombone alongside two-part vocal harmonies hugging Brazilian-accented Portuguese, Cressman & Faquini weave their musical voices together to craft a fully orchestrated sound befitting a much larger ensemble.
