This week’s IT’S [Talk] TUESDAY guest is Alyssa Duerksen. Lady D & the Shadow Spirits have just released their new album, ‘Star Kiss’, and Alyssa is here to discuss the real, the authentic, and the truthful journey of this collection.

Lady D & the Shadow Spirits plays deeply powerful soulful poetry through the lens of rock, folk, soul and punk music. Lady D, Alyssa Duerksen, fronts this powerhouse band of refined Ithaca musicians, Justin Roeland, Mike Amadeo, Chris Ploss and Jason Shegogue. Their sound is unclassifiable in a sense, they traverse flawlessly between intimacy and expansiveness, and somewhere in the middle there is actual magic. Lady D’s haunting voice bathes the crowd with something like a prayer and a primal cry; her prayer is for all of life, her cry is for peace and music happens to be her favorite language.

Theme composed by Matt Harvey.

Opening interlude performed by Lindsay Zaroogian.
