Carry On, Teisha



<p><a href="https://audiophilestyle.com/uploads/monthly_2012_08/teisha_faces.jpg.b4e756401582d8389d66f97745f093fd.jpg" class="ipsAttachLink ipsAttachLink_image"><img data-fileid="28122" src="https://audiophilestyle.com/uploads/monthly_2012_08/teisha_faces.jpg.b4e756401582d8389d66f97745f093fd.jpg" class="ipsImage ipsImage_thumbnailed" alt=""></a></p>

When singer-songwriter Teisha Helgerson died of leukemia last year, her friends discovered unfinished work in her journals and cell phone recordings. Thus began a collaborative effort to finish and record the songs. Some are performed in part by Teisha, others by her artist friends.


Teisha was the frontwoman for the Portland-based indie folk-pop-whatever ("latin-tinged country jazz") group, Amelia, and other bands that became increasingly popular in the Pacific Northwest and regional music scenes.

A CD is to be released on August 23, but you can stream the tracks now at Teisha and Friends and even download in your choice of MP3, FLAC, ALAC and other formats on a pay-what-you-like basis ($10 suggested for the whole album, $2 for a track), with the proceeds benefitting patients undergoing bone marrow transplant treatment.
