ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Aileen Paron originally came to Seattle for the vibrant theatre scene, but soon found herself doing more songwriting than acting. “I’ve always known performing was my calling. I started writing songs when was a teenager, but the path I originally chose to follow was dancing and musical theatre. It was a comfortable space for me, and I was able to express myself through choreographing and performing in shows. Eventually, I began to realize it wasn’t enough. I had a voice of my own, and I needed to make it heard. I had to make a change. I started focusing on writing again and the floodgates opened. I’ve never looked back.”

She started singing at a young age, but found piano lessons stifling and unmotivating. Still, the piano called to her, and eventually, she listened. "I took, all told, a few years of formal lessons, but I consider myself largely self-taught. I just think I benefit more from following my instincts and my own two ears than from a 'one size fits all' lesson mentality. I'm too impatient for that!"

This year, she released her first CD, "Anonyma". She teamed up with local producer Vincent Gates of Commontone Studio for the release, which also features performances from highly respected local musicians including Mark Guenther, Paul Kemmish, Dylan Rieck, and Ryan Smith. A moody mélange of romance, cynicism and allegory, “Anonyma” delivers darkly beautiful, reflective songs and pulls the listener through a lush soundscape of sophisticated, yet accessible piano pop melodies.

Aileen Paron - What a set of pipes!
Great songwriting with a phenomenal voice. I haven't been into piano/pop lately but this has really caught my attention. Nice work Aileen.

Haunting debut...
Paron's initial album evokes a dash of Fiona Apple (of the Criminal/Shadowboxer era), and a smattering of Portishead's Beth Gibbons, but deserves consideration on its own merits: the songs are thoughtful and poetic, and reward close listening for both the lyricss and the harmony. Particular favorites for me are Skyscrapers and Tidal - the latter ably evokes the Northwest for me: complex and often melancholy. Recommended!

An awesome CD - I can listen to it again and again
A really great CD... you can really pick out some influences here, old and new: shades of Carole King, Tori Amos, a touch of Fiona. A bit more jazz influence than those, but it's in the same spirit, and the music and vocals are right up there. Definitely worth a listen.

Relaxing & Comforting
After a hard day's work, I like to calm down on the way home, I pop in Anonyma and listen to Aileen's voice sore over the jazzy-soothing tunes. I really like the Skyscrapers song, it's got a neat ring to it. I'm definately happy with my purchase of this local Seattle artist.
