Liv Warfield's sophomore solo album, 2014's The Unexpected, is a forward-thinking production mixing modern soul, rock, and alternative R&B. The album follows up Warfield's well-received 2006 debut, Embrace Me. As a respected artist in the Portland soul scene, and as a member of Prince's New Power Generation, Warfield has built a name for herself as a passionate vocalist, with a dynamic stage presence. Featuring executive production from Prince, The Unexpected brings all of Warfield's experiences to bear on a set of exuberant, powerful songs.
