Ante M's Solitary World—a cinematic landscape of spacious, captivating arrangements with melodic, ethereal alt-pop instrumentation—is sure to appeal to creative, adventurous, trend-bending, beauty-loving music and art fans. The singer/songwriter’s buttery, soulful vocals, which are comparable to Jane Siberry, will comfort and console while her lyrics surprise, intrigue and reach listeners’ innermost spaces.
Solitary World is a song collection that explores both sides of being human: the physical world in which life is temporary, finite, mortal; the realm in which we win and lose, we make mistakes and are triumphant, we are emotional, we need. We can experience being alone, Solitary. There’s also the spiritual realm that’s all around us and within us; the realm in which we are eternal, infinite, immortal, whole and complete; where we are connected to Life and each other. We are all one, even when we feel Solitary.
Produced by Mark Ephraim (Neko Case, the New Pornographers, Ed Vallance), Solitary World features an all-star cast of Parker Kindred on drums (Anthony and the Johnsons, Joan as Policewoman, Jeff Buckley), Tyler Wood on Moog and keyboards (Chester French, Joan as Policewoman) and Simon Shippey on guitars (Ed Vallance, Custom Blue).
