Description

'To the Sky' is the second album from Irish singer and cellist Naomi Berrill who is currently based in Florence. Following the success of her first release 'From the Ground', this second project consists of 10 original compositions by Naomi and is the second step in Naomi's 'Elements' project. Here the focus and inspiration for the music is Water. Stories of seamen, lighthouse keepers and far away lands are woven among her ethereal vocals, subtle harmonies and acoustic imagery. Underlying all is a subtle environmental message with hope for the future. Naomi's work had been influenced by the musical atmospheres she grew up in, the various places she has lived and studied, (from Glasgow to Basel) and her work in classical, folk and jazz styles. Using cello as an accompaniment to her voice she has developed instrumental techniques which are unique to her compositional style and originate from various musical genres. She has recorded and performed at many Italian Jazz Festivals with the Jazz ensemble 'Purple Whales' and as a duo with jazz pianist Simone Graziano. As a soloist she has been invited to collaborate and perform at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, Spoleto Festival, Venice Biennale, the Uffizi Galleries, Galway Jazz Festival, 'Spike' Cello Festival in Dublin, Irish folk festivals in Italy and Ireland, and many more. She is artistic director of the festival 'High Notes'. A multi-genre music festival which she founded in 2010, which takes place each year in the Apuane Alps.
