Coniece composed the holiday song, “Snow Cover Stars”, and she self-produced her new CD, Shades of Shirley Horn, released March 17, 2019, and debuted on both the Roots Music Report’s Top 30 and Top 50 Jazz Album Charts and the North American College & Community Chart. Shades of Shirley Horn has received outstanding reviews from Midwest Records, Jersey Jazz, Jazz Weekly, Take Effect Reviews, Glide Magazine, In a Blue Mood, Audiophile Review, Jazz2Love, Bebop Spoken Here [UK], The Jazz Page, and Cadence Magazine.
