The Raveness is an artist most infamous and yet most misunderstood in the music scene. For her work is not comparable to any artist out there, this has been the reason for her success. This artist is not one for the mainstream market and is often described by some as “Mediocre”, simply because they want song’s that are ‘Conventional’.
As an artist she does not seek what is ‘Commercial’ and thinks outside of the box. With a spoken word style that almost locks you into a gothic abstract dream. It’s what she describes as macabre poetry with a strange musical ambience and on the contrary to the comments of those in the beginning who stated that her art had no potential she went on to sell out on both debut albums and gained a strong following. Grappling those whose imagination also runs wild with her talons and absorbing them into her maelstrom of madness and story-telling.
The foul mouthed English poet type, whose real name is 'Siân Húlme' and art name ‘The Raveness’ for her mischiefful darkness and melancholic ways typically associated with the raven of the genus corvus. Raven poetic tales of mystery and macabre inspired by none other than Edgar Allan Poe with a surrealist’s almost comical and historical twist. It is works of a talking book nature and as the fine English accent feeds you the plot, the vocal will also send you nose diving into a hellish nightmare with a slight demonic and most uncomfortable vowel, that she is proud to say horrifies the ‘fashionable’ listener.
'Siân Húlme' is best known for these spoken word works but is also adored by her listeners for her heavy approach to the classical works of composers such as Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, Ludwig Van Beethoven and Johann Sebastian Bach. She was the first to 'Gothic-ally' reinvent Johann Sebastian Bach’s ‘Toccata and fugue’, with her ‘Harpsi-corpse’ trademark sound. A sense of Mozart plugged into a pedal of distortion.
She began her music career in August 2012, after gathering together six years of historical and poetical works which became her two debut albums “The flamboyant aspersion of red” based upon Countess Bathory who she has been researching for almost ten years and “Of blood and absinthe” her most popular album to date. The physical copies of these albums (as aforesaid) sold out within two months of their releases with excellent reviews by listener’s rating them four and five stars. Most impressively to her fans she is a self-taught composer of Baroque and Renaissance classical Harpsichord, Piano and organ.
