ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Farah Alvin has been making a name for herself on Broadway and as a session singer for nearly a decade. "Someday" is her long awaited debut as a songwriter and solo performer. Drawing from a wide variety of lyrical and musical influences, Farah has created a unique sound, blending the worlds of folk, jazz, pop and blues with deeply expressive and ironically humorous lyrics.

http://www.artsjournal.com/aboutlastnight/archives20050918.shtml#102726

"... Someday is full of lots and lots of everything I like in pop music: good tunes, smart lyrics, gorgeous singing, spare and striking arrangements.


"I especially like "Tragedienne," a song about two women whose friendship is on the rocks..."


"...If you've enjoyed the music of Erin McKeown, Jonatha Brooke, Allison Moorer, Luciana Souza, Dave's True Story, the Lascivious Biddies, or any of the other slightly off-center singer-songwriters and pop groups championed in the past by the like-minded proprietors of this blog, my guess is that Farah Alvin will suit you right down to the ground. Check her out. "

Moving, emotional, true - too bad she had to use the F-word!
This CD is mostly about loving and losing, and she has written some amazingly true thoughts. I loved the instrumentals. I really liked the song Breathing Each Other In, since it was about loving and not losing. In the song contradiction, if she had only said the times he messed up or screwed up instead of f----- up - whenever I get to that part I cringe because I know I'm going to hear the only bad thing I can say about this marvelous CD and her marvelous talent.

rapterous is her voice, definitely rapterous !!
no, i can't rate the cd, haven't bought it as yet, but i can rate this gorgeous woman's voice ... rapterous, absolutely rapterous ! i just had the priviledge of seeing, and more importantly hearing miss alvin in the off-broadway show: "i love you because." now, while the premise of the show was a bit ridiculous and far fetched, it was more than worth it to discover the incredible talent, to say nothing of the incredible beauty, of farah. her voice is like that of a muse. oh my goodness, when she opens her mouth and the notes come out --- what a spectacular voice !! she should be, and i'm certain, will be, starring in a broadway production before we know it. what a talent! what a beauty! what a smile !

Suzanne

A voice not to be missed
Her voice is rapturous, her lyrics wrenching, her compositions elegant. I've heard her sing in person many times and I'm always electrified. And this amazing talent is my niece! What a fortunate aunt am I!

alan souza

farah is an amazing singer making an amazing debut
if you like eva cassidy, you'll love farah alvin - if you like norah jones, you'll love farah alvin - if you've ever loved and lost you will relish farah's words - if you crave clear, fresh musicality you will thrill to farah's easy yet emotional style - this is a profound yet accessable and exciting debut album that has been a much appreciated addition to the music libraries of the many friends I have led to it

Beth Mohammed, MTV

Sublime....Soulful....Sultry
Working at MTV, I come across A LOT of music...and it all sounds the same: over-produced, unimaginative and unoriginal. Farah Alvin's SOMEDAY is a refreshing change from the bland music scene today. It is simply real, achingly poignant and beautifully rendered. It's original, cool blue theme is rich, soulful and romantic. Check it out...you won't be disappointed!

Margie

Her voice blows me away!
I too knew I had to order this CD, haven't gotten it yet but I also saw her in Funny Girl at The New Theatre Restaurant in Overland Park, KS. Farah's voice has such feeling, emotion and energy in it. When singing, she has the potential to be soft, quiet and thoughtful, but she can also be as strong as a jet airplane if the song calls for it. All you have to do is listen.........the goosebumps from her words, music and voice will soon follow. She is aweseome!

MLH

Just gorgeous!
Someone played You Won't See Me for me and I knew I had to hear the rest of the songs as well. Intelligent, lovely words, a beautiful haunting voice.. I can't wait for more!

Pam

It was everything I thought it would be. She has an amazing voice.
Farah was so amazing with I seen her in Funny Girl at the New Dinner Theatre in Overland Park, Ks. I knew that I had to find more music by her and I was so glad to hear that there was a website in which to get CD's. It is just so relaxing. Her music speaks to the heart!
