"Eleanor Dubinsky is prodigiously talented: a gifted multi-instrumentalist with a strong, clear voice and a knack for catchy, open-hearted, multilingual pop that invokes the likes of Maria Bethânia and Carole King. While Dubinsky’s recordings are well worth your time, you need to see her live to appreciate the full package. Her recent performance at NYC’s Joe Pub celebrated the release of her latest album, Soft Spot of My Heart, and it was a knockout. Dubinsky’s multilayered songs — inspired by jazz, soul, Latin, and afro-Atlantic influences — opened up and revealed themselves in performance. Songs like the gospel-inflected “Turn It Around” and “You Are Special, You Are Beautiful” are relentlessly positive, but leavened with enough emotional grit and musical muscle to stop cynics dead in their tracks. The result was a joyous, uplifting and deeply generous performance — to her musicians and the audience alike — that was just the tonic for the frayed nerves of many New Yorkers after another long winter in these parlous times. Go. See her. This is music as medicine for your soul."

- Tom Pryor (music journalist: Nat Geo Music, Songlines, Afropop Worldwide) 

Turn It Around (Live at Joe's Pub, April 10, 2018)

Watch an EPK video about the recording process of Soft Spot Of My Heart in Portugal and NYC and preview music from the record:

"It is so precious to hear carefully crafted songs, matching the standard of vintage era New York songwriters like Carole King. Unfortunately, this sense of quality is quite rare now. But at the same time, Eleanor Dubinsky is the exact opposite of routine singers sticking to retro formula. She bravely finds her own way and is willing to take risks. Her songs are filled with joy and desire, but also you hear personal reflections exploring the fragile links between human emotions and responsibility. She always finds a perfect balance between burning passion and understatement - and consistently, her message is supported by crisp musical ideas. Dubinsky plays guitar and cello, and has a wide knowledge of musical languages from Cabo Verde, Latin America, gospel and jazz. Yet her strongest weapon is her voice: a warm, flexible and very feminine tool expressing her stories, not ego."

- Petr Dorůžka, music journalist based in Prague, Czech Republic (recipient of the 2017 WOMEX Professional Excellence Award)
