A Piece of the Wall Reveille Music, 1999
“Janet Stecher and Susan Lewis create a wonderfully big vocal sound, with arrangements that are as intricate and subtle as they are thrilling…A bright, strong, uplifting album – recommended.”– Richard Middleton, Victory Review
Warning: Women at Work Reveille Music, 1997
All arrangements by Janet Stecher and Susan Lewis. This CD includes 13 cuts about work and the labor movement: some historical, and some by contemporary writers like Si Kahn, John McCutcheon, Anne Feeney.
” . . . their biggest contribution to the art was to take good songs and work them into quality performances. Rebel Voices works like a jeweler – – creating the right setting for a beautiful gem.”– Art Farquharson Local Motion, Victoria, BC
Ever since we started singing together in the late ‘70s, our passion has been to find great songs and to make them our own. Working together to make harmonies and arrange a song so that it is new and entertaining continues to be a satisfying partnership for us. The best part of doing “A Little Look Around” was allowing ourselves to fulfill many fantasies by working with all of the wonderful musicians who helped us on the recording. The most difficult part was choosing, from all the songs by all the writers we love, only 12 to include on this, our first recording as a duet.
