I know, I missed last week. Last Monday was a no-work day and almost a no-computer day too. Hopefully y’all were off doing fun things like dancing, grilling, grabbing some end-of-summer fun. I’ve been on a bit of a hiatus due to stress, and hope to be back writing again soon. In the meantime, listen and enjoy!
This week’s artist is another Brit, Imogen Heap. I tend to favor non-American musicians for the most part and I’m not sure why, with the exception of the piano and cello, where my native peeps get the luvin’. Imogen is trained in piano, clarinet and cello. She later learned on her own the Mimbra and the Hang (one of my favorite percussion instruments!) She’s also an accomplished mix and sound engineer. But it is her voice that is so stellar to me. I first heard her on this track with Jeff Beck and was captivated.
While she is part of a duo, Frou Frou, I’ve always preferred her solo work. This song has had a lot of meaning since the death of my husband.
Artistically, I find this song of hers hauntingly beautiful, and the video is gorgeous to watch as well. This song was on my mind when I wrote ‘Dreams for Sale’.
And if you enjoy the artist, please support them as I do, by purchasing their music and acknowledge their talent.
Have a marvelous Monday!
