Seattle's 'Avant Goddess' has invited 24 creative colleagues from the US, Mexico, Italy and Spain to join her on this audio adventure, and the results are fabulous!
This array of rich original music features Denio's unique and beautifully skewed pop/world soul songs and stories in English, Italian and Spanish, woven with field recordings. This multi-instrumentalist composer and singer has created 15 gorgeous anthems, songs and stories ~ regarding love, the gloaming, visions in an Irish graveyard, commentary on the infinite by her mother, parallel universes, the apocalypse, piano tuning, gall stones, an imagined nightmare scenario, and life in a nursing home. It contains some of her field recordings as well as long-distance contributions from musicians worldwide.
Denio presents her fine multi-instrumental talents, playing 12-string and electric guitars, bass, alto saxophone, clarinet, wooden flute, accordion, piano, a variety of percussion instruments, and a jar of her mother's gallstones. Her voice soars with unearthly harmonies, her lyrics are serious, playful and thought-provoking, and the songs are unforgettable.
