You’ve waited patiently and now the time has come. Nite Jewel releases her sophomore album and debut release for Secretly Canadian today! On One Second of Love you’ll find a re-imagination of Golden-era R&B pop; future-classic sounds alongside vocal sultriness. If Nite Jewel’s earlier work brought to mind the likes of Lisa Lisa or Debbie Deb on quaaludes, this new body of work may conjure up clearer images of the likes of Sade, Eurythmics-era Annie Lennox and Tracy Thorn. Pure, confident, singular but intricate and delightfully sophisticated. You can order your copy HERE or pick one up from Nite Jewel at any of her upcoming shows! Check out the full list of dates HERE.
“Ramona Gonzalez, the singer and songwriter of the Los Angeles group Nite Jewel, has a pretty and welcoming mezzo-soprano voice that sometimes drops into contralto range. Right around its lower middle – the octave above middle C basically – is her sweet spot. It’s there that her dark and mellow tones come out, as well as her generosity, her care, her ambition and possibly her sense of romance. It’s the key to her.”– New York Times
Nite Jewel succeeds in crafting an album that is both lyrically and aurally rich. –Consequence of Sound
“She’s fascinated by certain sounds for both nostalgic and cerebral reasons, and throughout her new album, One Second of Love, those two forces duke it out.” –LA Times
