Album Notes
I Came To Love, a new release from Anjani Thomas, heralds the next chapter for the accomplished singer-songwriter. This ten-song collection chronicles the path of the heart through passion, jeopardy, and ultimately love, all revealed through Anjani’s fluid and mesmerizing sound.
Picking up where the critically acclaimed Blue Alert left off, Anjani sets the tone with the album’s title track: i came to love as a novice / with an aim to learn… now I love as a woman / sure of what she sings. With vocal nuances and impeccable phrasing, Anjani establishes a startlingly intimate connection with the listener: she’s not singing to you, she is touching what’s inside of you.
Anjani’s creative partnerships have always been unerringly honed, and it is no exception with the assembly of pros on this recording. Jerry Marotta (Peter Gabriel), acts as producer and percussionist on six tracks, building potent rhythms on Weather A Storm With You, and the mysteriously moody Standing On The Stairs. Toronto producers Rob Piltch and Jonathan Goldsmith sync a hypnotic trance groove on Holy Ground: my lover stands on holy ground/in a scarred and barren field/where my weakness is revealed/he holds space for me to heal.
Love In Between features country music giant Larry Campbell (Bob Dylan, Levon Helm) on guitars and fiddle; while renowned flamenco guitarist Pavlo takes a passionate solo turn on Love Be A River. For her longtime fans, Anjani reprises her celebrated musical collaboration with the legendary Leonard Cohen on three new tracks, including Song To Make Me Still, a wistful poem sung to meditative piano accompaniment.
One part biography, one part love letter, one part statement album, I Came to Love is a rich and varied musical journey. “It took much longer than I expected to finish this record,” Anjani says, because every time I thought it was done, something tipped the balance, which compelled me to keep working until it felt complete again. Leonard told me when we started writing together in 2005 that part of the creative process is allowing for that sense of ‘Ah, now it’s right.” It can take time for the weak spots to surface; and being patient yielded songs as nurturing to write as they are satisfying to sing. For me, it was worth the wait.”

At last! Anjani's new album is out!
As a huge fan of Anjani's album Blue Alert, I have been waiting for this one for a long time. Had been listening for months to one of the tracks (Standing on the Stairs) which I found on youtube, but it was a live recording of Anjani in concert so the sound quality was not perfect. As soon as I heard this new album had been released today, I downloaded that title and several others and have been playing them nonstop for the past couple hours. As usual, the melodies are beautiful, the lyrics are soulful, and her voice is a breathy, jazzy enchantment.


thank you
thank you anjani, sometimes we forgot ...and life becomes very hard, you're music is a safe place where to nourish. you can hear the hidden treasure of everyday life in it.
thank you


At last...
It's been a long time since Blue Alert, but for Anjani it is the quality, not the quantity, that counts. For the faithful, the result of this commitment makes the wait worthwhile. I have not the turn of phrase necessary to compose a deserving review, so please let it suffice for me to say that the great tragedy of this album is all the people who will never hear it. In a world of shallowness, Anjani cuts very deep. She deserves the greatest possible audience, and I feel both privileged and sad to be one of the relative few. Buy, listen, and spread the word.
