TIMELESS MELODIES
- the new album by Tally Koren, with original lyrics and arrangements based on classical composers' melodies

'Timeless Melodies' is a unique project of songs by Tally Koren based on the music of Mozart, Chopin, Fauré, Satie, Beethoven, Tchaikovsky and Piazzola. The marriage of Tally's style and lyrics with these classics is both effortless and natural; her intention is to bring the melodies to a wider audience:
"I couldn't resist writing lyrics when I heard those divine classical melodies. I took nearly two years to complete the project so that I could respectfully and sympathetically edit the compositions into songs."

Most of the melodies are in minor key, but Tally's lyrics and vocal arrangements are optimistic, combining to create a haunting and soothing album.
Several producers were involved, key among them Southend's Dave L Cooke (Helen Shapiro, Three Degrees, Sinead O'Connor, Van Morrison).

Tally is a singer-songwriter with a distinctive voice, emotive, resonant and deep. The simplicity of her song delivery and sophisticated stage presence coupled with a passionate personality and multi-cultural upbringing further set her apart.
