Album Notes
“Well-produced with lush sonics, Dara knows how to make a melodic record…a talented vocalist with a wide range and charming voice” –Indie-Music.Com

“[Covering] David Bowie’s ‘Heroes’ is a hard feat… but Dara’s version has it’s own soul”- CollectedSounds.Com

Chroma Records’ newest signing is Alicia Dara. Born in Vancouver BC, Alicia is the daughter of Grammy winning symphony musicians. Trained at an early age as a vocalist, Alicia explored musical theatre and cabaret before writing her first record of original songs in ’97.

“The Secret Dream of Tigers” is Alicia’s new CD. In the vein of Aimee Mann’s “Bachelor Number 2” and Rufus Wainright’s “Poses”, “The Secret Dream of Tigers” is a musically eclectic group of songs that explores several different styles in service of a larger theme. Alicia dedicated it to “all the artists, with love and encouragement”, and the metaphor of interaction with tigers (who are mentioned on 5 of the 12 songs) serves to illustrate an artist’s struggle with demons both inner and outer.

The culmination of 2 years of work with producer Jason Staczek, it features a host of Seattle luminaries including Ian Moore, Mia Boyle, Andy Stoller, Johnny Sangster, and Dave Brogan. Standout tracks include “Trouble”, a love song that features Alicia’s stunning soprano voice at its most seductive, and a cinematic cover of David Bowie’s “Heroes”. “Black Muddy River” praises the power of female appetites, while “Leather Jacket” reads like a cautionary tale about buying into the evils of one’s own image.

So far in 2008 Alicia has shot a music video for “Black Muddy River” (due on YouTube later this year) and signed a publishing deal for film and TV soundtrack representation. Alicia also went on a summer pre-release tour. She played at the Knitting Factory in New York, the Limelight in Nashville, and at Genghis Cohen in LA. “The Secret Dream of Tigers” will be released on Wednesday October 8th.

that voice!!!
If you think that Alicia is merely just another hot chick with a guitar, stand up and take notice,this woman is an amazingly gifted writer and performer. Her vocal instrument is pristine, her writing is thoughtful and engaging. Her wicked smile and general hotness is merely the added bonus.
