Nina Simone - Her musical style arose from a fusion of gospel and pop songs with classical music, in particular with influences from her first inspiration, Johann Sebastian Bach,and accompanied with her expressive jazz-like singing in her characteristic low tenor. She injected as much of her classical background into her music as possible to give it more depth and quality, as she felt that pop music was inferior to classical. / My Dad adored her voice and singing style.

“Life is short. People are not easy to know. They're not easy to know, so if you don't tell them how you feel, you're not going to get anywhere, I feel.” OR “It's time to take a look at my failures and stop calling them successes. Now I can start working at something that can use me best.” #ninasimone #smartgirls #amypoehler

60's jazz album cover art - although you're not a jazz musician, the spirit of playfulness with a hint of sophistication could be a strong direction to take inspiration from. Abstract shapes and strong use of color could be appealing to both Danny Ray and Acoustic Production audiences.
Happy Birthday, Louis Armstrong! L.A. was the first important soloist to emerge in jazz, and he became the most influential musician in the music's history. As a trumpet virtuoso, his playing, beginning with the 1920s studio recordings made with his Hot Five and Hot Seven ensembles, charted a future for jazz in highly imaginative, emotionally charged improvisation. Armstrong also became an enduring figure in popular music, due to his distinctively phrased bass singing and engaging personality.
