Subway Silence - Giovanca

On My Way
Hypnotize you




‘Pick a city.. any city with a world above and under ground, tracks and trains, back and forth. A thousand footsteps .. or only yours, newspapers, briefcases, headphones, cell phones… all minding their own business.'
It's the underground world that served as inspiration for Subway Silence, the debut album of Amsterdam based singer Giovanca Ostiana.

For years Giovanca has been known as the radiant background singer who did live and studio work for (inter)national artists such as Relax, Wouter Hamel, Typhoon, Tribute2BobMarley, Corey, Izaline Calister, Jhelisa Anderson, Terry Callier, Leon Ware and Benny Sings. The musical click with Benny Sings and the DOX record label made her decide to take a step forward and present her own work.

From the twelve songs on her debut album slowly arises the appearance of a talented young woman who is not easily defined. At times melancholic and vulnerable, at other times independent and free. Feel-good music with influences from pop, soul, jazz, Motown and hip hop.

The end result is an extraordinary and diversified record with international allure. With Subway Silence Giovanca demonstrates that she will not be restricted by genre specific regulations. Music is not like mathematics. it just has to feel good and the same goes for the words that one uses. Thinking of songs that touch me, emotion always is more important than the literal message. "Soul" uniquely shimmers through her light, dreamy voice that Giovanca uses to sing about life, loneliness, love and above all: herself.

Released in February 2008, her debut album reached the charts in her home country.
The first single ‘on my way’ was released in Japan before the summer in Japan and reaches within 3 weeks the J-Wave charts at number 8. Giovanca does an extensive Japan tour in October of the same year. She grows rapidly into her role as the brilliant vocalist she is meant to be, and mesmerizes the Japanese and Dutch Audience at every show.
