The Guardian

The Aviary (2012)

The Aviary was released in March 2012 and was my debut studio album on the Karamel Music Collective label.

I had recorded half of it in New York working with producer Brad Albetta and arranger and violinist Maxim Moston, and half in London with Ray Singer over the period of 3 years and features the ‘Hometown’ and ‘Manon’ singles, as well as a tribute to my brother, ‘Song for Daniel’. 

 

Following her debut single 7" 'Hometown', recently launched to to a packed house at the Southbank's Purcell Room, multi-instrumentalist and songwriter Ana Silvera, releases her long-awaited first album 'The Aviary' (Karamel Music Collective). Drawing on a love of story-telling and for the folk music she grew up with, Ana sings of deeply personal experiences alongside mythical and historical tales of romance and tragedy. Drama, complexity, exuberance, life, death - they're all here in the complex melodies and heart-warming, sometimes bone-chilling lyrics of this debut. The songs equally reflect on Ana's own eventful life for inspiration.
