“I’m Verklempt”* . . . . : Blue Sky by Quail

Full disclosure: I’ve known Anna Young (bassist, composer, arranger and all around awesomeness) and her brother Nick Young (mixing and mastering – sonic and otherwise) literally their entire lives. So it is with the greatest of pleasures that I present the first single from the band Quail. They are music students from Ithaca College in upstate New York and are a remarkably poised R&B/Funk band. The single “Blue Sky”, written and arranged by Anna Young, strikes me as a popier version of Amy Winehouse, with a great jazzy horn riff that will definitely ear worm it’s way into your head.  It’s now on all your streaming services
