Talking Elephant Records is delighted to announce the forthcoming release of 'Songbird' by Carla Fuchs. The album features ten tracks, nine of which have been created from lyrics - - found in the notebooks of Sandy Denny. With the exception of the lyrics for 'Sixpence' and 'Georgia' none of those lyrics had previously been put to music or used in any of Sandy's published songs. Both 'Sixpence' and 'Georgia' had been put to music on a 2011 album by Thea Gilmore. But for this album Fuchs has composed new music. 'Songbird', which was wholly written by Carla, completes the album. Sandy's daughter Georgia was looking for a way to do something with her mother's legacy. By coincidence she received an email from Carla with a link to her song, 'Songbird' that she had been inspired to write about and dedicate to Sandy and Georgia. The two hit it off immediately through their shared love of Sandy's work. Georgia was impressed with Carla's songwriting skills and suggested she be the one to bring the lost lyrics to life by composing the music for them.
