Ambrosia Parsley - Then Was Then and Now Is Now

For a decade Ambrosia Parsley provided the heart, face and voice of Shivaree, cult favorites here, left-field chart-toppers abroad. Featured in many other works by artists such as Mocean Worker’s album Enter the Mowo & Verbena’s La Musica Negra, Ambrosia delivers one of our favorite vocal performances of all time on this week’s Top Tune originally released on 2009′s The Best Is Yet To Come, The Songs of Cy Coleman.

Preparing now for her next full album project, Ambrosia offers this disclaimer: “What remains of the “music industry” six years later is no place for a working mother who writes long, dark waltzes, talks like a sailor and may have just recently completed a harrowing years-long search for the perfect pie crust recipe. I recently spent eight weeks in barber school with a very nice muslim man from Morocco and two dashing parolees who’d rather eat donuts, and all i have to show for it is an ill-fitting smock and a bunch of friends who enjoy free haircuts.” Dear, Miss Parsley, please sign us up for all of the above.
