Three Sisters!

sistersbannerI’ve been blessed with three lovely and talented daughters, Maura, Emilia and Eva. As a proud papa, I could go on and on about them – but why listen to me when you can listen to them?

Evapost

Eva is the youngest.

She’s just recorded a handful of songs that she wrote. You can click on her photo – or click here – to hear what she sounds like.

Her mother and I believe she got that smoky, bluesy voice by screaming and crying herself hoarse as a tiny child. (Guess that’s how she paid her dues.)

Emilia is the middle child: the wild child.

For some reason, she’s taken to writing and performing comedy sketches. Where did that come from?

Emilia PostYou can enjoy Emilia’s comedy here – or by clicking on her picture. She’s been making us laugh since she was very young. Emilia wrote her first joke when she was four years old.

“Why do dinosaurs smell so bad?” Answer: “Because they’re ex-stink!”

IMG_6471Maura is the big sister with the big voice.

She sings like an angel – and writes with soul.

You can catch her solo act as Ms. Maura, or see her perform with various bands in Los Angeles. You can explore what Ms. Maura is up to by clicking on her photo – or clicking here. Check her out live – or download her album, Reversible Lobotomy.

Singing Sisters: My Best Holiday Gift

Sistas

The Sistas are Emilia, Maura, Nick (Producer & Son-in-Law) & Eva.

The Way You Dance

Christmas 2012 blessed me with a lot of great gifts from friends and family – but none more wonderful than the one you can listen to by clicking on the link above.

My three darling, soulful daughters, Maura Murphy-Barrosse, Emilia Barrosse and Evangeline “Eva” Barrosse recorded a song I wrote back in 1984, with my son-in-law Nicolas Fournier (a talented record producer and sound engineer) at the controls.

Take a moment (actually 3:26) to listen to sound of a father’s heart bursting with loving pride.

And you can dance to it.

Ms. Maura Plays The Viper Room & Other Musical Highlights!

Ms. Maura and Lynz are also inviting friends and fans to help them make their first music video.

All you have to do is send Ms. Maura a photo of you holding a sign stating why you can’t complain. (See the charming samples at right.)

Then, you and your fabulous photo will be featured in the music video.

But that’s just where the musical fun begins. Ms. Maura & Lynz are also playing a gig at The Viper Room Lounge THIS THURSDAY, May 10th at 7:45 PM. And if you come to the show, they promise a special surprise!!

The Viper Room Lounge is located at 8852 W Sunset Blvd in West Hollywood. Tickets are $10.00. And remember to mention Ms. Maura & Lynz at the door!

You can also “Like” Ms. Maura on Facebook.

And check out her EP, “Reversible Lobotomy”.

If you haven’t discovered Ms. Maura yet, check out what the National Music Examiner has to say about “Reversible Lobotomy”.

“LA’s talented sassy mama, Ms. Maura is laying down some serious tracks on this EP.  Proving that if you’re going to do an EP, you should cut the fat and give ’em your best, this lady proves to have the talent and skill to do just that.  If you enjoy Shirley Bassey’s style, Adele’s throaty range, and some textured, complex musical arrangements that traverse through jazz/classical/world rhythms.  Each track melds beautifully into the next and yet each packs a powerful punch unto itself.  “I don’t wanna” exudes truth, beauty, and honesty expressed with a rich soulfulness.  These 5 songs have been on repeat rotation since first hearing this EP for it’s a fresh, timeless, deep cohesive effort by a deserving to be called “Diva”, Ms. Maura.”

And an iTunes Review by IndieIsGood said:

“At first you think, “Oh, she’s a little like Annie Lennox,” then you think, “No, she’s sort of a torch singer,” then you think, “Whoa! That’s a BIG voice — like Etta James Big,” and then you just stop thinking and sit back and say, “It’s just GOOD.”

Your Pop Filter said:

“Ms. Maura’s voice has SO MUCH range and expression.  The record is a tidy 5 tracks long, but these 5 tracks feel so much bigger.  Throughout the first listen, the songs seem to vary a great deal, but something unspoken ties them together. Subsequent listens serve only to pull you deeper into her world… I heartily recommend that you buy it.”
