“Silver Life was inspired while watching the reflection of the moon rising above the night horizon over the sea. In those reflections this album was written drawing from, the unique freedom that our imagination gives us, which in turn takes us on our own journeys through friendship, honesty, love, life and dreams” Lucinda Sieger
International singer-songwriter Lucinda Sieger first achieved commercial success with UK number one dance track “40 Miles” (Congress), on which she supplied the alluring vocals. Lucinda’s crystalline voice has since spawned musical liaisons with many successful artists including members of Leftfield, Massive Attack, Bronski Beat and Jamiroquai.
Her new cd, “Silver Life” hits the stores in May featuring remixes by world music maestros, Temple of Sound and atmospheric sound-scapers, Slipper (Loop Guru). Lucinda’s compositions successfully fuse ambient folk, jazz and dance in varying measures. The album focuses on creative remixes of tracks from her previous project “Heart in the Sky” which she co-produced with Temple of Sound.
Acoustic tracks, “Now here we are” and “Silver Life” are co-written with gifted guitarist Reid Savage (Way of the West). In “Bread” Lucinda combines her writing and performing talents with those of Winston Blissett who records and tours with heavyweight musicians like Robbie Williams and Kylie Minogue.
Lucinda’s haunting compositions, her unique voice and her talent for interweaving a multiplicity of musical influences provide the backbone for this masterful mix of chill out music.
