Product Notes

Born in Tunisia and raised in South Africa and England before moving to New York, singer-songwriter Anya Singleton's first full-length album, 'The Other Side' features 11 tracks all co-written by Singleton. Not content to only chronicle the ups and downs of heartache, Singleton casts a refreshingly candid view on politics, materialism, and relationships. Never retreating behind slick over-production, she prefers to take an organic, rootsy approach to this album, layering guitar-driven melodies with electrifying back-up vocals and plenty of organ, percussion, even backwards guitar. "Don't Tell Me," a rousing anthem that channels Aretha Franklin and Janis Joplin, showcases Singleton's sultry attention-getting pipes, while "Stop This Train," an ode to the heartbreak of growing apart, finds Singleton's lyrically aching vocals offset by her moving and intelligent songwriting - appealing to fans of Dusty Springfield and Joni Mitchell. Singleton tackles the tangled weave of politics on "Wake Up", with it's trippy rock edge, and jazz-affected timing that underscore her blues roots. Catchy melodies and dynamic lyrics echo 70's classic period Stevie Wonder with nods to the Beatles, giving her music a timeless feel -- while Singleton's unforgettable voice, at once powerful, earthy and conversational, expertly combines a bluesy raw edge with a unique delivery, establishing her as an artist for a whole new generation.
