News Americas, NEW YORK, NY, Fri. May 12, 2023: Marie-Claire Giraud, a Jazz singer born in Dominica and raised in the Bronx, has been invited by Leesta Vall Records, a Brooklyn NY record label, to perform her original song “CHASIN’ RAINBOWS” in their “Direct-to-Vinyl Live Sessions” on May 22nd, 2023.

The live performance of the optimistic Jazz tune will be accompanied by guitarist Ricadrò Grille. Giraud expressed her excitement to be part of this innovative and diverse series. “It’s exciting; truly. I am thrilled to be a part of this project and I can’t wait for the 22nd to record this song live for all those who request it. Each one will be its own unique creation,” she said in a statement.

Leesta Vall Records’ program provides an authentic, one-to-one experience between artist and listener. Fans pre-order the song and receive a unique and personalized version of the recording cut in real-time to a 7” lathe cut vinyl record. Chris Eichlin, the Artist Relations, Talent Scout, and Social Media Manager at Leesta Vall, was struck by Giraud’s timeless lyrics and the cadence of her song, comparing her voice to that of Ella Fitzgerald.

Giraud’s inspiration for the song is to encourage people to never give up on their dreams. Fans can pre-order “CHASIN’ RAINBOWS” on the Leesta Vall website until May 15th, 2023. Giraud has performed at various music events in the Caribbean, including the Jamaica Jazz and Blues Festival, Love is all We Need in Antigua, and Dominica’s Creole in the Park.
