Attention Amy Denio Fans!
Seattle's 'Avant Goddess' is releasing a new recording project, Prodigal Light featuring her unique and beautifully skewed pop/world soul songs. 24 colleagues from the US, Mexico, Spain and Italy join her on these songs, and the results are fabulous!
Please join Denio and many of her collaborators for the CD Presentation at Solo Bar in the Queen Anne neighborhood of Seattle at 8pm on Tuesday, November 12.
Prodigal Light contains 15 gorgeous songs regarding love, the gloaming, visions in an Irish graveyard, commentary on the infinite by her mother, parallel universes, the apocalypse, piano tuning, an imagined nightmare for Dubya, an Italian partisan song, the Cafe Racer murders, and life in a nursing home.
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.
It's distributed by CDBaby.com and available for download at amydenio.bandcamp.com.
