ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Lacy co-produced her debut CD Lovefeast with Jim Gallagher at the Gamble-Huff and Kajem/Victory studios in Philadelphia. The album's eclectic musical influences range through traditional Asian, African and Celtic music sources and result in a singular style inspired by the natural world. In "Song of Songs," Old Testament love poetry drifts through a heavenly arrangement of Arabic and Indian percussion, flute and keyboards. "Silverback," based on the life of gorilla researcher Dian Fossey, blends thundering drums and African percussion with ethereal sounds from a variety of sources: guitars, bass, synthesizers and the Rwandan gorillas themselves.

"James' strength is drawn from her deft ability to create an inspired mood through her use of exotic rhythms and instruments." - (CMJ Certain Damage)

"It has that Kate Bush/Tori Amos feel with an exotic Middle Eastern twist... the disc is a sumptuous affair." - (Philadelphia City Paper)

"A host of multicultural influences come into play, similar in nature but not necessarily in style to singers like Ofra Haza, Sinead O'Connor and Enya. James' style is delicate and ethereal, with a molten core and a clear, strong delivery." - (Big Shout)

"...enough successes to make this very well-recorded disc worthy of a serious listen by those with open musical minds. When it's at its best, this disc takes some adventurous chances that rival the work of anyone working in these occasionally treacherous musical areas." - (Philadelphia City Paper)

Anna Maria Stjärnell

Strong record
Strong and individual record by an artist who deserves to be far better known than she is. Enjoyable and powerful songs.

"The music is hauntingly embracing; there's also a real sense of movement here, which may be due in part to her background as a dancer as well as a musician. You can almost feel a physical expression manifested in the turn of an instrument or a percussive rhythm."- Big Shout Magazine

"...I was so impressed with what I'd heard I immediately bought a copy. It's been spending a lot of time in the ol' cd player. "James includes various music styles, mostly Middle Eastern, on the Lovefeast cd, and her voice does remind us of Kate Bush, to whom she's been complimentarily compared.... overall, it's an excellent piece of work. A must for your eclectic music collection." - Ozmosys Magazine [This message has been edited by Mereminne Productions (edited June 06, 1999).]
