“Come Fly Away” is the first of three singles to be released before the full 10-song CD is available September 8, 2023.

“I Will Wait For You” is the second single from “A Slice of Moon”, released worldwide via all major streaming services and Bandcamp on July 21, 2023. An analog synth opens the track with hypnotic minor-key arpeggios as Suki Rae steps to the mic. She delivers a poetic promise to her lover amid a dreamy downtempo mix of ambient keys, percussion, strings, and flute.
Suki Rae was kind enough to share with us an advance copy of “A Slice of Moon”. Throughout the CD, the talented songwriter and producer weaves a rich genre-bending cultural mix of contemporary pop and music traditions from around the world. From the Broadway inspired theatrical pieces like the opener “Partners in Crime” to the ragtime-infused pop of “Baby You Came Along”, “A Slice of Moon” is a musically sophisticated and adventurous collection.
The songs examine love in all its permutations, with a timeless mix of musical styles. Songs like the title track and “Catherine Street” match beautiful jazz-infused pop moods and city scenes with poetic and romantic imagery. Suki adds some Big Easy vibes on “Just Because of a Kiss”. Throughout the record, Suki Rae is joined by a world-class ensemble of players. It is a beautifully produced record that pairs virtuosic musicianship with richly woven tales of love, loss, and renewal.
