Product Notes

Where is the American Bjork? has our society become so increasingly homogenized as to all but eliminate an environment for unique artistic musical creation? arlah answers this question with a resounding 'no! Art in music is not lost!' and the first place she starts: turning the ubiquitous guitar/bass/drum band on it's head. What instruments are more intrinsically compelling to the human spirit yet entirely absent from today's musical scene than violins, violas, and cellos? arlah brings them back into the foreground, having a string quartet as her band and an electronic musician to fill in the rest. Her aim: to move people, to connect with them. To electrically charge a room with emotion and passion and those elements that nowadays get lost in the shuffle of commercialism and commerce. To open the communication of human experience and to have a dialog with the hearts of listeners, and to reach something more meaningful than any formulaic music could ever hope to achieve: real, true, free expression and the synergy of understanding in artist and audience alike. The music: steeped in classical tradition, yet thoroughly modern as drum beats and synth sounds carve their way through it. Arlah's string arrangements are richly textured, creating emotional soundscapes as backdrops for lush vocals and deeply felt lyrics. It is electronica with an unnervingly vulnerable humanity, and it is this duality that arlah strives for most in her music. 'we, as humans, must push for our identities as being separate from the material world we have created around us' she has said. 'too easily we get caught up in the artificial and we lose the sense that our worth and value are much greater than that.' having written, recorded, mixed and produced everything on her debut album singularly, arlah is indeed a musical force to be reckoned with. Released early this year, 'in search of...' stands as an introduction to what promises to be a luminous career of musical innovation, vision, and uncompromising artistry.
