I highly recommend you listen to the new album, Scorpion Moon, by the remarkable singer SORA. This is a winner. Already acknowledged as one of the leading vocalists in the new age music genre, her sound also touches on folk, Celtic, neo-classical and pop. This is her third full-length album and it contains all-original material.
This talented artist, who majored in psychology in college, shows a deep interest in mythology, fairytales, archetypes, feminism, collective consciousness, and narratives that illuminate our life passage. Check out her lyrics in the CD booklet.
Her strong, soaring voice is backed by soft and subtle acoustic instruments including piano, violin, cello, harp, flutes and a variety of world-music instruments. Although the band does not get too many chances to step forward and shine, they provide a solid, tight-knit and tasty platform from which Sora launches her incredibly pure and powerful voice. She is like an angel with opera training. Reading about this incredible voice wont cut it. You are going to have to go out, track down her music online, and find a site that will let you listen. Even they only let you sample 30-second excerpts, you should know in a flash what a great singer Sora is, so do yourself a favor and check this lady out.
