Odessa: Hummed Low

A few deep breaths are recommended before sinking into Odessa’s quiet song “Hummed Low.” Through a bare yet polished arrangement, LA-based classical violinist-turned-singer-songwriter (who toured as a back-up violinist for bands like Edward Sharpe & the Magnetic Zeroes) sings of expansive blue skies, miles of open road and a drive to a meaningful final destination—letting you escape the hectic pace of the city—if only for a fleeting moment. Odessa’s self-titled debut album is now available.
