When Sunny Gets Blue
By Kathy Edwards McFarland
Covering a Johnny Mathis tune, Jan Daley opens a raspy-Bluesy Jazz vocal that at once grabs and holds one’s attention.
“So excited to share this Video of my Single and EP entitled “When Sunny Gets Blue.” I think Jon Burk did a great job creating the mood of this song, in the video. Jack Segal, who wrote “When Sunny Get Blue,” was my songwriting coach, and co-producer on this track. It was he and Michael B. Sutton, (CEO of Imerica Entertainment LLC), who dragged me back into the recording studio saying, “With that voice, you’ve got to record this.” So … Voila! Hope you ‘like’ it.”
