Description

Soulful American folk: a gorgeous, heart-stopping mixture of the longing you get in saudade singers like Cesaria Evora and Joao Gilberto and political protest. Will Oldham's in there; so is Dionne Warwick. Simone has toured extensively, from Lincoln Center in New York to WOMAD in the UK, the Green Man Festival in Wales and throughout Europe. I Am The Man was a favorite with critics from MOJO to the Daily Mail and the single "The Beep Beep Song" became the soundtrack for a world-wide, award-winning ad campaign for Audi. "For those bewitched by the posthumous small-hours voice of Karen Dalton, here is a living echo of that still, small, intensely concentrated spirit. ...an intimate prettiness concealing within the rosebud the thorns of subtly articulated political protest and the warped, eerie gaze on human weakness that has been The Velvet Underground's legacy to the modern folk idiom. I Am The Man is a summer soundtrack of charm and beguiling depths." Four Star Review **** MOJO
