“This is an evolution,” admits Eckroth. When It Falls, her third solo release, certainly marks a transformation: Featuring guitarists Derek Trucks and Doyle Bramhall II, drummers Matt Chamberlain, Gary Novak and Sterling Campbell, and bassist/producer/husband Tim Lefebvre (David Bowie/Tedeschi Trucks Band), the album explores sonic areas far removed from the singer’s early work.

While When It Falls marks new musical ground, it’s not the first time Eckroth has shown a knack for the unexpected. Growing up in Phoenix, the keyboardist was already playing in bands before studying music at both the University of Nevada and Rutgers. She released her acclaimed jazz trio debut Mind in 2005 and a more expansive jazz/pop record (Let Go) in 2014.

More recently, Eckroth played keyboards with the experimental jazz trio Antelog, performed as the backing vocalist and keyboardist for popular singer-songwriter KT Tunstall and served as part of the house band for NBC’s The Meredith Vieira Show. She was also the Assistant Music Director for the Women’s March in D.C. in early 2017.
