ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
About the CD

Emily Schiavi has spent years of musical expression, developing her song-writing skills, playing in different bands in different lands and in different languages and singing on numerous albums recorded in Jerusalem and other various cities around the world! :) When finally, in the fall of 2007, she began the process of recording her own first full length album, bringing the many lyrics, chords and melodies to life. And so, "The Sky is Still the Same" was officially released in April 2008. The album was recorded at a wonderful studio in Tel Aviv and includes all of 14 songs - one hymn and 13 originals (mostly written during her 5 years as a volunteer in the Middle East) as well as a song created spontaneously in a 'live' studio recording. Some greatly talented musicians either flew in or came and supported the project by using their skills to make such a nice complete sound. Enjoy!

About Emily

One can find Emily Schiavi illegally playing pianos she may happen upon at sundry hotel lobbies, restaurants and even, once, at the World Council of Churches in Geneva.

Her penchant for world wandering and her eccentric wardrobe has had her mistaken for being evasive and unconventional. But as expressed through her lyrics, the deep content of Emily's heart is to fly high and wide and free, to know the truth.

Emily grudgingly began playing the piano at age 6 before it became a passion and college major. Her unique playing style and lyrics belie an earthy realism, yet an ungovernable hopefulness. Listeners are drawn in by her combination of soulful vocals and fresh, inquisitive lyrics.

Having been raised in the metropolis of New York City for most of her 31 years, at 26, Emily unexpectedly moved to Jerusalem, Israel. She spent her last 5 years there as a full-time volunteer and musician. Starting with a small 'gig' of playing for an old ladies monthly bible study, Emily then started playing regularly at a 24-hour music center in Israel’s capital as well as with a few bands in the city and several solo acts as well. It was during this time that her music grew by leaps and bounds and she became an avid song-writer and also comfortable with the whole 'stage' aspect of performing, playing in front of crowds of 10 people to 5000 or more. Emily loved being part of and supporting a musical movement of young people who want to revolutionize their land and nation for peace. Throughout her years in Jerusalem, a city rife with both talent and tension, many more of Emily's songs have been squeezed from her soul onto paper, and, more importantly, recording devices.

Not be outdone, the family's musical genes began (as far as she knows) with Emily's grandfather, Pete Spagnoli, known in Italian restaurants across New York City for his expert accordion playing.

Emily's passions include English tea, London, all things Italian, not sitting still for an extended period of time and of course music, both its science and art. World travel and piano playing have taken her to the Middle East and the far corners of Europe including a visit to her grandfather's musical roots in the mountains of northern Italy. Emily recently had the pleasure of joining many other well known artists at Parachute Festival 09, the largest music festival in New Zealand! Who knows what will be next but she is always ready for an adventure.

Emily has recently returned to her hometown roots of Queens, NYC and can be found checking out the local singer/songwriter scene.

The Sky Is Still The Same
This cd touched my heart the first time I heard it. It got right into my spirit and I sang along with it of course not as good as Emily.

The sky is truly the same
A great album, Emily. The first 5 songs on the album are my favorites. They're so moving, and haunting, and relatable. It's like you were singing exactly what I've been writing about for the past 3 years. And Beauty in the Brokeness became a title for one of my photo albums, because your song reminded me of a truth I was forgetting. I'm so happy for you, that your dream has finally come true. Your music and lyrics are truly moving and they remind us of hope. Mazal tov, Motek.
