 “A breath of fresh air on the american songbook” - JAZZ HOT MAGAZINE

"genius" - Wolfgang Sandner, FRANKFURTER ALLGEMEINE

"4 Stars!" - JAZZ MAGAZIN

"great blues piano" - Richard Kamins, STEP TEMPEST

"sounds as if she loves...singing" - Scott Yanow, LA Jazz Scene

 “swinging, uncluttered, gently seductive” - LUCID CULTURE

“The latest from vocalist-pianist Champian Fulton is a tribute to Dinah Washington, which is great, but I’d be happy to hear Fulton if she were singing pages from the phone book. Swinging like crazy and burbling with creativity whether she’s singing or playing piano, Fulton, who turned 30 last year, would be a household name if the industry that propelled Norah Jones, Diana Krall and Jane Monheit to stardom could still work its magic.” Peter Hum, THE OTTAWA CITIZEN

“Fulton moves effortlessly and vividly from delight, to wistfulness, to wounded angst in a matter of seconds and makes it seem completely natural, the work of a deep and insightful individual and a rare force on both the keys and the mic.” - NEW YORK MUSIC DAILY

"display[s] maturity far beyond her years" - Ken Dryden, NEW YORK JAZZ RECORD

Champian's much anticipated new album, After Dark, will be released on February 9 2016. After Dark features the music of Champian's hero, Dinah Washington, and she is accompanied by Jazz luminaries David Williams on bass, Lewis Nash on drums, and Stephen Fulton on flugelhorn. Each tune was handpicked by Champian to reflect her personal favorites of Dinah's legendary repertoire; from well known standards such as "Ain't Misbehavin" to lesser known hits such as "Keepin Out of Mischief Now", you can expect every song on the album to transport the listener and "remove the dust of everyday life," as Art Blakey would say. Read what Champian has to say about the record in her own words, as excerpted from the liner notes:

"[Dinah] has comforted me when I needed it, made me laugh, and warmed my heart. In recording this album of her songs, I hope to do the same for my listener. I hope this record makes you smile, feel loved, and brightens your evenings. Put it on in those quiet moments After Dark."

While the street release date is February 9, the album can be purchased online right now in the store section of this website.
