I am pleased to announce an East Coast Music Association (ECMA) award nomination for my original soundtrack, FROM THE RIVER TO THE OCEAN in Electronic Recording of the Year!!! What a huge honour. I really couldn’t have created this soundtrack without inspiration and support from the Cucalorus Film Festival, MusicNL and the talent of some pretty amazing musicians and engineers: Craig Follett, Brent Beshara, Brad Weber, Justin Merdsoy and Krisjan Leslie. See you in Saint John, New Brunswick for ECMA Week!
“Her new album, FROM THE RIVER TO THE OCEAN, is a breath of fresh air. MacPhail’s passion and skill on the flute is obvious; She inspires the listener with uplifting melodies and dance-inducing grooves. MacPhail is forging new territory for musicians everywhere. I highly recommend everyone listen to this album!” – Amanda Taylor (The Flute Examiner) Read the full article: http://thefluteexaminer.com/interview-canadian-flutist-rozalind-macphail/
My Cucalorus Film Festival artist residency in Wilmington, North Carolina is in full swing and I’m having an absolute blast! Just completed the DVD authoring for HEAD FIRST and have begun a new film/music project called WILMINGTON that involves a bunch of talented filmmakers from this amazing community. Tomorrow night, I will be performing at the Cucalorus Film Festival’s Kickstarter Birthday Party at Bakery 105. Hope to see y’all there! https://www.facebook.com/events/1514777475428037/
