GRAMMY® Award-winning vocalist Cecile McLorin Salvant has had a remarkable rise to stardom in her professional career, and she's taken another big leap forward with Dreams and Daggers, her third album for Mack Avenue Records.
"The songs on this album are of dreams and daggers. The daggers have been used at times to attack, at times to defend. For power, no doubt, to take it, to keep it. The dreams are the ones I caught looking out a window, or from the light sleep before the deep. I don't always know what they mean, but they are the ones I was able to keep. And yet dreams can be desires too. I wrote them down to make them true. That we may bring our wildness into view. That we may be unruled and unruly." - Cecile McLorin Salvant
