Out of the Jar
Singer/songwriter/musician Atoosa explores love and hope, devastation and desire, in her unflinchingly honest search for truth. Her intensely personal lyrics, captivating vocals, and magnetic stage presence have been transcending musical boundaries while garnering audience attention and critical acclaim. Compelled by her passion for music, Atoosa went on to gig widely in New York City at venues such as The Living Room, Makor, and The Knitting Factory, and to release Out of the Jar, produced by Emily Lazar, and her self-produced second album, Sound Travels Up, which she describes as "my hopeful twist on twisted things." Both received rave reviews. CDBaby Magazine wrote of Out of the Jar, "sparkling piano, shimmering strings, widely varied percussion, fragile-yet-confident vocals, and heavenly guitar combine and shine in this well-rounded and musically complex CD." Of Sound Travels Up, MusicDish.com wrote, "Atoosa's own blend of pop, folk and raw, un-genre'd ballad style is a persuasive argument against NO....This CD is very strong, and let's us witness the poet that has taken the time to craft such pretty flowers." Derek Sivers, President of CDBaby.com, lauds Atoosa as "creative and delicious," and CollectedSounds.com wrote, "I can't wait to hear what she does next!" Her next effort has arrived and lives up to the expectation and buzz. With it's release, Atoosa excitedly looks forward to continued local gigs, touring and media appearances, and especially, "learning more about this world we inhabit," and continuing to inspire audiences by "having the freedom to be who you really are." Because to Atoosa, that is what her music is all about.
