"Anne Marie Almedal (Album review)"

"This beautiful Norwegian siren is a former Velvet Belly member, the band who scored some early 90s pan-European hits, she then recorded under AM & The UV, before settling in as a fully-fledged solo artist. To her fans, "The Siren And The Sage" blossoms gracefully. Sweetness multipled, sadness tripled, her music brings you a closer step to heaven. Her folky sound, with a light aromatic electronic touch, is like a riot of pastel colours up against a state-of-the-art photoshop grafico. Much credit to the producer Nicholas Sillitoe┬┤s crafty melodies, Anne Marie's glittering yet smoking voice brings to mind Vashti Bunyan and Mara Carlyle. Covers of "The First Picture Of You" and "Since Yesterday" are a towering archievement. Elsewhere ("Morning 71" and "Trouble") are as fantastic as sharing the last cigarette with the one you love". - Esquire Magazine

Bio

Anne Marie Almedal "Blue Sky Blue"

Anne Marie Almedal is well-known in Norway as the lead singer of Velvet Belly. Throughout the Ninetees they released six critically acclaimed albums and received a Norwegian Grammy for the album "Lucia".

Following on from "The Siren And The Sage" - her debut album as a solo artist, comes "Blue Sky Blue"...
A wonderful feel-good/feel-sad album for pop scholars and music lovers alike - with a highly original Scandinavian "folk-tronic" production approach to the singer/songwriter genre.
Together with film composer, producer and husband Nicholas Sillitoe, she once again delivers a timeless song collection to highlight her beautiful, lost and lonely voice against atmospheric cinematic backdrops.
The new album, recorded in London and Kristiansand, featuring the legendary bassist Danny Thompson (ref: Nick Drake, John Martyn, Kate Bush, Talk Talk, Everything But The Girl) is out now!
