From the start, Siedah's new self titled album seemed to
possess a life all its own. When the singer-songwriter decided
to return to the recording
studio, several of her highly regarded peers enthusiastically offered their
services, just to be part of the project. "I'm very proud of that fact that I cut
the tracks live with the band, and what you hear is real and organic," Siedah
says. "Before I started recording, I put together a core band that would
give consistency throughout the album, and allow me to perform my songs live."The
result of this approach is an album that connects the dots between danceable
rock 'n' roll, intelligent pop and pumped-up R&B.Siedah relishes its rock-pop
thrust, noting that "the general feel of this record is uplifting, truthful
and revealing." With its unforgettable songs, thought-provoking lyrics and
earthy performances, this new album demonstrates Siedah's gift for artistic reinvention.
SIEDAH is the latest evolutionary step in a distinguished musical career.
