Queen Esther's pandemic album Rona -- the fifth album from her label EL Recordings --
is now avaliable (click here!) for pre-save on Spotify -- or click here to pre-order on Bandcamp.

Set adrift in the narrow COVID restricted confinement of life in New York City after a month-long residency alone on the Gettysburg battlefield, Queen Esther let her heart shelter in place as she expanded creatively, and wrote songs about her loved ones, the changing landscape of the city and the rest of the restless world.
