On the follow up, Speak Low renditions, Lucia decided to move this conversation to the contemporary arena. The idea was to involve artists at the current vanguard; musicians whom she also considers her family and musical soulmates. She chose individuals who are dear to her, who have a strong artistic vision, who are progressive, unique and honest with their work – and make singular, uncompromising music. The intent, this time around, was to take the stems from Speak Low and offer them up for the wildest interpretations, hence unlocking more potential, musical futures. From the 10 artists who were contacted, not only all of them agreed to participate, but every one of them submitted a gorgeous version. The beauty of Speak Low renditions lies not only in showcasing some of the most interesting music happening at the frontiers of modern Jazz (and its offshoots), but that it's actually a wonderfully cohesive and dramatically balanced musical journey. When asked about how she managed to avoid the pitfalls of compilation territory, Lucia said that she approached the project like a curator. She made sure that the artists that she recruited, would not only offer great music, but that together, they would also fuse into a graceful mosaic.

Born in Zürich, Switzerland.
Singer / Composer / Lyricist based in Berlin.
The newspaper DIE ZEIT recognizes in the native Swiss singer one of the most important voices "for the resurrection of jazz melody beyond tired scripts and singer-songwriter clichés." Originally from Zürich, now living in Berlin, Cadotsch recorded three albums with the musical collective, Schneeweiss + Rosenrot. They won the New German Jazz Award in 2012 and played festivals and clubs all over Europe. With SCHNEEWEISS + ROSENROT she has been crossing musical borders and continuously creating new music for ten years. The band joined forces in an attempt to create a platform free from preconceived ideas of what jazz music should be or not. In 2015 she founded a new acoustic trio: LUCIA CADOTSCH SPEAK LOW with Petter Eldh on double bass and Otis Sandsjö on tenor saxophone. Where Lucia goes back to her roots, singing a captivating beautiful collection of modern classics, like Gloomy Sunday, Strange Fruit and Moon River. Their versions carry the unmistakable stamp of Berlin 2016. Acoustic retro-futurism. The Art of keeping it simple and raw. SPEAK LOW- their debut album will be released on February 26th, 2016 on enja/yellowbird records.
Featured as a guest, she can be heard with the Georg Graewe Orchestra and is collaborating with musicians such as Rainer Böhm, Kathrin Pechlof, Christian Weidner, Johannes Lauer, Phil Donkin, Don Philippe (Freundeskreis), Dan Freeman and the Artist Paul Polaris.
