ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
What happens when you take a girl from the suburbs of Chicago, transport her into the culture, music and language of Brazil, and then drop her into the New York City music scene? You get the power and heartfelt timbre that is Fiama. Fiama’s music blends her Brazilian roots- artists such as Elis Regina, Maria Bethânia and Caetano Veloso, with her R&B and Pop experiences to form a unique sound for her deeply touching, and searching lyrics. The diverse talents of her band members add to the mix styles and cultural influences from places such as Puerto Rico, Japan, Ecuador and Chile. Fiama's debut album "They Say Fala" is resonant with Brazilian, Latin and Rock-influenced tones fronted by one of the most unique, soft and dynamic vocal talents you will ever hear. Her songs are interwoven with a delicate balance of the Portuguese and English languages to convey powerful and poignant messages of love, life and yearning.

"As far as the people I have only met in spirit through their own mystical way of expression, well, these include Edith Piaf, Janis Joplin, Maria Bethânia, Caetano Veloso, Tom Jobim, KT Tunstall, John Mayer, Stevie Wonder, and all of the brilliant singers and musicians that we meet in tiny bars in Brooklyn. These influences have been my motivation and inspiration.” - Fiama

Fiama is a true talent
So many musical styles in one album and yet it all fits together to tell us a story. The intro welcomes us with the sounds of an old tape reel as Fiama slowly emerges from a tiny voice inside the tape recorder. The a cappella track opens the door to the rest of the album. "Mundo" the second (but actually the opening) track gives us long, sweeping chords and full-on drums in the beginning and then leaves us breathless from its hyper intensity at the end. "Mundo" is one of my favorites. "Remember" is slow, haunting and dark in it's minor tones and Fiama's intense, demanding lyrics. The cellos add texture and emotion as the guitar fleshes out Fiama's words to you. "Mysterio" is the lead-in to the more Brazilian-style songs on the album. Not quite a bossa-nova tune and yet Fiama holds on to the theme of the 'Bossa' sound. "Nothing to Explain" (or 'Fala' to those aleady familiar with Fiama's music) is the band doing what it does best. If you are a fan of Fiama, you've heard 'Fala' live. It's a great track to have on the album. "Meu Carnivale" is yet another beautiful melody and sweeping sounds from beginning to end. Listen to this one with your favorite headphones. There's lots of detail and texture in there. "Real Thing" is my favorite for more reasons than I could ever have time or space to write about. As Fiama asks "what if you're the real thing" you're there with her completely understanding... "Pretending" gives us more of that Latin feel and lots more of Fiama's intense lyrics. "Conclusao" is... wow, booming drums, percussion, chaos, shouts, yells and imagine Fiama spinning around and around as the tempo continues to increase out of control.

Give Fiama a listen and be part of a very unique sound. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.
