“Recording with Myrna was like in the days at the record Plant in Sausalito Ca. with Sly and The Family Stone. It was serious, but had a family atmosphere. The music was great, everybody was totally professional [without being stuffy] I can''t wait to do the next CD. – Much love to her.”
- Jerry Martini, Rock and Roll Hall of Fame,
Sly and The Family Stone
Letting Go is the long awaited debut CD by Myrna, a native of the Live Music Capitol of the world Austin, Texas and was preceeded by attention around town. The Austin City Council recognized her by declaring “Myrna Day" in her honor. She was inducted into the Texas Music Museum. An article in the Austin American-Statesman Xlent Entertainment section described her as “one of the best Austin artists you’ve never heard of (but will).” The Austin Convention and Visitor''s Bureau has chosen the track "Un Dia" for their yearly Latin compilation CD for 2009.
The incredible support from talented musicians that jumped on board to play on her debut CD, include: saxophone player Jerry Martini (Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, Sly and the Family Stone), keyboard player Reese Wynans (Double Trouble), accordion player Ponty Bone, bassist Glenn Fukanaga (Lloyd Maines, Joe Ely, Asleep at the Wheel), and drummer Hector Muñoz (Alejandro Escovedo), to name a few who perform on the new CD.
“It''s a beautifully done record that rocks and is full of amazing surprises! You''ll want to hear it again because of where these songs take you. They twist around you when you least expect it and grab a hold of you!”
- Glenn Fukanaga, bassist
"She is sure to be at the top of many "Best Of..." lists, after this CD is released, as she has a jubilant personality and incredible talents. I really enjoyed this recording session. You be the judge."
- Ponty Bone, Texas Accordion King
The album "Letting Go", consisting of 10 original songs she co-produced, was mixed and mastered by Mark Hallman at the Congress House. It''s a blend of blues, rock, soul and a splash of Latin.
The album starts by putting the listener in a dancing mood and then proceeds on a roller-coaster ride of emotions and sounds of anger, falling in love, falling out of love, therapy and letting go, up until the final transformational song, “Answers,” which has the feel of a gospel church. Dramatic and addictive they make you want to dance, and you end up whistling the songs long after they are over.
Myrna''s vocals are passionate and strong, seductively drawing you into each song.
