Monicas vals – Out Now!

Åsa Orbison’s debut album “Blue Bayou”, ”Green Eyes” is pop/jazz 💚 brilliance from beginning to end. Åsa’s voice sparkles with playful beauty in this throwback to the 1940s.

“Those cool and liquid green eyes

A pool of wherein my love lies

So deep that in my searching

for happiness I fear

That they will ever haunt me

All through my life they’ll taunt me

But will they ever want me?

Green eyes, make my dreams come true”
