Goes to CD Baby
This debut CD (2001) features eleven original songs, ranging from
gothic ballads to dirges to arias, a tapestry of haunted melodies and
laments. Her vocals, rich with feeling and lyricism, float and soar
through the atmospheres of her spare instrumentations.
"A remarkable talent this, with Sylvi's vocals superb in every detail, from the near
operatic moments here, to the more introspective gothic sort of tracks. Although the
instrumentals are constructed to really bring out the feel of each song, it's Sylvi's voice
which is the real focus here.If you like the sound of a sort of cross between the vocals
of Enya & Beth Orton & the instrumentals of the later Nick Cave material,
then you'll love this album." -- hEARd magazine, Sept. '02
