With the release of her seventh studio album, multiplatinum singer-songwriter Elisa Toffoli is poised to win over American audiences with the passionate, piano-driven modern pop that has long enchanted fans in her homeland of Italy.
Steppin' On Water elegantly showcases the multi-instrumentalist's tender yet formidable voice and penchant for quietly powerful melodies. Breezy and bold in equal measure, the record makes for a masterful follow-up to 2009's Heart (the triple-platinum release featuring a breathtaking duet with Antony Hegarty of Antony and the Johnsons) and 2008's Dancing (a chart-topping best-of collection whose title track won Elisa early acclaim in the U.S. after its appearance on So You Think You Can Dance?).
Steppin' On Water was self-produced and features two songs, 'Love Is Requited' and 'Apologize,' from the forthcoming film Someday This Pain Will Be Useful To You, starring Oscar-winners Marcia Gay Harden and Ellen Burstyn, with Lucy Liu, Peter Gallagher, Deborah Ann Woll, and Toby Rigbo.
