Cordelia's Debut Album

On August 27th 2020, we went into Woolly Mammoth Sound in Waltham, MA to record 8-12 songs. Woolly Mammoth is a longtime staple in the Boston scene, and a number of the band members have already had amazing experiences recording there. Containing a bounty of vintage and modern gear,  a reactive and responsive live room, and a handful of skilled and sensitive engineers, recording at Wooly Mammoth granted us the luxury to actualize our sound and create an intimate sounding, creatively textured album that brings our songs to life. 

Your donations will all go toward the variety of expenses associated with creating an album from start to finish. This includes the tracking, mixing, and mastering at Woolly Mammoth, as well as CD manufacturing, marketing, merch creation, album art, and a host of other small tidbits that all add up to a full, complete project.
Cordelia combines jazz, folk and rock sounds to wrap you in an emotional blanket of love, loss, and claims for independence.
In 2015, Mariam Dahbi  flew away from her hometown of Rabat, Morocco to pursue graduate studies in Education, and carried along her lifelong dream of being a professional singer and songwriter.

She finally decided to join forces with incredibly talented musicians at Harvard and beyond to form her dream band with Bob Abruzese, Grant Smith, Jack Lewis, and Jacob Sunshine. After finally deciding on the name Cordelia, the five of them are raising money to record a debut album, featuring full arrangements of Mariam's original songs, along with some new songs written together.
