Anna Calvi – Anna Calvi – LP
Anna Calvi – Anna Calvi
2011 debut album from the British artist. Co-produced by Rob Ellis and recorded in London and France, Anna Calvi’s debut is an honest distillation of her talents as a songwriter, singer and guitar player. Haunted by the timeless sounds of Nina Simone and Maria Callas, as well as the classical romanticism of Ravel and Debussy, and the Rock innovations of Jimi Hendrix and Captain Beefheart, the record is both mysterious and decadent, nostalgic and forward looking. Anna Calvi is a remarkable album from a woman who has more than justified the support of such luminaries as Brian Eno and Nick Cave, which as well as feeling like a fully formed piece of art in it’s own right, also serves as an enthralling insight into what may lay ahead for Anna in the future.
