“On August 28, Blix Street/Crooked Crown Records will release Change The Ending, the new album from acclaimed singer-songwriter-producer Maia Sharp. The record features guest vocals by The Rescue’s Adrianne Gonzales, Garrison Starr, Dawn Thomas and Bonnie Raitt. Sharp will be touring with Raitt in October and can be heard on the nine-time GRAMMY® winner’s new album, Slipstream. Change The Ending follows Sharp’s 2009 album, Echo. Produced by Don Was, it contained the Top 10 Triple A radio hit “John Q. Lonely” and “Death By Perfection,” which featured Raitt and was tapped by NPR as “Song of the Day.” The new album reaffirms Sharp’s gift for capturing the subtleties and shades of gray that characterize relationships.”

Maia returns to Pittsburgh tomorrow. She will playing a live studio session at WYEP at 1p.m. followed by a full set at Club Cafe with guest Garrison Starr. My thanks to her for taking the time to participate in this edition of First/Last.

Thanks, Maia. See you tomorrow.
