ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Aeone was born in England and grew up in Emsworth, Hampshire. Part of her childhood was spent in the Far East, in Singapore and Hong Kong, where her Father served as an officer in the Royal navy. Musical from an early age, it was soon clear that Aeone had a natural ability for composition along with a gift for singing. At King Edwards School, Witley, a school with a specialist music department, she studied voice along with piano, oboe and guitar. After leaving school she went on to study voice at a more advanced level at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama, in London.

Known for her ethereal vocals, Aeone (pronounced AY-OWN) has the ability to express deep emotion through her voice, whether it be within her unique style of wordless vocalizing or through song. Forging her own unique path and a sound which is hers alone, Aeone incorporates the voice in cinematic and layered soundscapes, often using ambient grooves and elements of world and orchestral instruments to create a musical experience.

Spring 2007 brought with it some exciting new projects for Aeone, In the world of movie trailers – Aeone’s warrior-like “Heroika” was pivotal in the campaign of the blockbuster movie ‘300’ (Warner Bros) – directed by Zack Snyder and starring Gerard Butler (“Phantom of the Opera”) and Lena Headey.

Aeone had three songs featured on the television series "The Black Donnellys.” The show was created by Oscar winning writer and director Paul Haggis (Crash, Million Dollar Baby, Flags of our Fathers) and writer Robert Moresco. Aeone’s beautiful and moving song – a lament entitled "Across the Water" was used as an integral part of Episode 4, "The World Will Break your Heart." Other songs featured are "Indira"(Episode 3) and "Miracle"(Episode 7).

Aeone’s voice can also be heard in her otherworldly arrangement of “Silent Night”(Mixed by Jeff Silverman) in the upcoming thriller “Wind Chill” – releasing April 27, 2007 and featuring Oscar nominated Emily Blunt (“The Devil Wears Prada”) and Ashton Holmes – in which two college students are haunted by ghosts after their car breaks down in the snow on Christmas Eve. This is also available on iTunes mid April 2007.

In other areas. Aeone brought her unique vocal sound to the score of TNT’s 4-hour Emmy-nominated mini-series. “The Mists of Avalon.” (http://www.aeone.com/Pages/mistsmain.html) Her haunting and beautifully crafted vocals ranged from mystical ethereal to emotional pagan keening and can be heard throughout this epic tale. The score and Aeone’s voice can also be heard on the soundtrack available on the Varese Sarabande label. The soundtrack also includes the haunting song, “I Will Remember You Still” – produced and performed by Aeone – inspired by both the legends of Avalon and Lee Holdridge’s moving score.

More recently she has moved into scoring, writing the music for the “Spy Girls” promo and pilot for Universal/USA Team "Knight Rider" spin-off, and has been particularly successful in the world of motion picture advertising where her music has been integral to the marketing campaigns of many movies including: 300, The Guardian, The Holiday, Flight Plan, Swimming Upstream, Man on Fire, Van Helsing, Something’s Gotta Give, The Last Samurai, 13 going on 30, The Hulk, Tupac Resurrection, Tomb Raider, Legally Blonde 2, Rabbit Proof Fence, The Medallion, Enough, Boat Trip, The Messenger, John Q, Behind Enemy Lines, The Shipping News, Life or Something Like It, Showtime, Rat Race, Finding Forrester, Saving Silverman, Lucky Numbers, Lovers of the Arctic Circle, One Night At McCool’s, At First Sight, Down to Earth, Instinct and Disturbing Behavior.

A beautiful project called “Audio Poetry,” written and produced with co-composers Starr Parodi and Jeff Fair, (www.parodifair.com) has also been highly successful and has licensed into numerous different movie trailers and promos.

Aeone’s music has also been pivotal to the multi-million dollar campaign to regenerate the Etowah River in Canton, Georgia as well as being used in the Ansari X Prize Independent Space Ship Launch.

In addition to releasing her own albums, British-born Aeone’s work has been used in both film and tv including: "Witchblade," "Extreme Makeover," “Brother Sun, Sister Moon” - Discovery, “Sharks, the Silent Killers” – Discovery, “Global Villagers – Socan, and NBC’s long running Soap Opera, "Santa Barbara." Her music has been recorded by artists such as Rick Springfield and Shari Belafonte. And Aeone was also the voice of “Tanya’ for “The American Tail” cd.

WINDOW TO A WORLD

Aeone has just re-released a re-mastered version of her first US album “Window to a World” (www.palettemusic.net/index2.html) intially released in 1991 and produced by Jeff Silverman. (www.palettemusic.net) to which two new songs from the back catalogue have been added.

“This was the beginning of an amazing creative musical journey and so interesting to re-release it and show where I began. Although my music has shifted, changed and evolved in many different ways – the seed was planted in this album and it is from this seed that my sound as an artiste today grew.”

It is a merging of sounds and of styles. The album is a combination, of synths, sound design, along with live players - a strong Celtic overtone but, also a sense of Bluegrass and pop...

A surprise
I bought the other two Aeone albums on a whim, as I knew very little about her and despite her connection with the Eurovision Song Contest which deservedly gets a bad press. I bought this album intentionall, as I was wondering when there would be something new.

It\'s a typical 90\'s album, much more rock/pop than her subsequent albums, but it has all the ingredients that make it a very enjoyable listening experience, with a number of different styles, but her unmistakeable voice.

It moves along at a fair pace and the 50 minutes goes very quickly. Excellent - and I await a new album.
