ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album 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 its 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.

The Other Side/Anya Singleton
I LOVED this CD! Anya\'s voice is very earthy and real (no need to \"hide\" her voice behind the typical over-produced sounds of today), the lyrics are incredible, and the melodies range from sassy to ballad-y to jazz-y, a great combination...overall a well-rounded CD,w ould highly recommend it!

Well worth your attention!
There's a mix of fast and slow songs on show here. "Don't Tell Me" and "Replaceable" fairly rattle along but it is the slow songs that entrance you. "Sandcastles" could easily have become just another power ballad in the hands of a lesser singer but Ms Singleton injects life and passion into the words. "Farewell" also makes the grade. It's a tale of regret but life and people move on. A similar theme is also developed in "Nevermore". Come to think of it, that's the theme that runs through the album. It's almost country - lyin', cheatin' men and independent, strong minded women who aren't going to take it anymore. Maybe somebody has mistreated Ms Singleton and, as Ms Singleton wrote or co-wrote the songs, it is reasonable to assume that her personal experience has some bearing on matters.
This is an enjoyable album on musical terms and Ms Singleton has one helluva good voice. Of that there is no doubt.
