"Evanescent" self-titled 10 song cd. Self-released 2/25/11.



Evanescent is a duo project featuring Bliss Blood (The Moonlighters, Pain Teens) on vocals and ukulele, and Al Street on guitar (Sugarman Three, Sweet Divines, Michael Leonhart's Avramina 7). Vocalist Bliss Blood and guitarist Al Street formed the band Evanescent to write original songs in the summer of 2010. They released their first 10-song cd "Evanescent" in February 2011 and have two songs featured in the film "Hello Lonesome." They play regularly in New York City area.
Their songs are erotic, sensual, stripped-down rhapsodies to longing, heartbreak, and secret desires, and tap into musical styles from across the sound spectrum, from flamenco to jazz to punk rock to North African music, anchored by Street's virtuosic guitar, and Bliss Blood's dreamy, cinematic, and deeply amorous lyrics.
Bliss began her career as vocalist and songwriter in the band Pain Teens in Houston and continued to write music and perform with The Moonlighters and Delta Dreambox, among other bands, in New York City since 1995.
Guitarist Al Street is a master of style and of the guitar itself. He has played at the world's top festivals, and can be heard on the Major Motion Picture "American Gangster" soundtrack, as well as "Three Days of Rain" with Grammy winner Bob Belden. Al Street has traveled to Venezuela, Honduras, Peru and Syria as a U.S. Department of State Jazz Ambassador.
