ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
"To say this is an emotionally charged album replete with gorgeous melodies, stunning vocal work and beautifully conceived ideas, would be an understatement."
Greg Cummins, Sea Of Tranquility

"Haunting, sexy and compelling... this is the closest to music nirvana that one can get. One of THE releases of this or any other year." Michael Sullivan, Here & There

"Outstanding.... an album of incredible depth and strength." Russ Elliot, musicaldiscoveries.com

"An album of rare emotional quality.... makes what most other artists are doing seem insignificant.
Nigel Messenger, Phase9 Entertainment



The Mermaid Kiss Album is a collaboration of vocalist Evelyn Downing and guitarist Jamie Field, together with keyboard/bassist Andrew Garman. Based in Kington, UK, they write and produce high quality, original music, which transcends ambient, acoustic, singer songwriter, progressive and rock. Songs vary from the compelling atmosphere of temptation on the track 'Mermaid Kiss' through the hypnotically beautiful 'Write My Name In Stars' to the majestic anthem 'Blind' with its layers of electric guitars and vocal harmonies and from the disturbingly scary 'Soundchaser' to the deeply evocative and catchy rock song 'Like Water'. The subtle use of flute, percussion and atmospheric soundscapes supporting great songwriting makes this album impossible to catagorise. It simply has to be heard.

During 2003, Mermaid Kiss were No.1 for twelve weeks at IntoMusic.co.uk - one of the UK's foremost mp3 sites.

An interview with the band can be found at www.musicaldiscoveries.com/reviews/mermaidkiss.htm

In 2006, the band released a 7 track mini album 'Salt On Skin' which can be found at: http://cdbaby.com/cd/mermaid2

Their critically acclaimed album 'Etarlis' was released in June 2007 (http://cdbaby.com/cd/mermaid3) and both Kate Belcher and Evelyn Downing have received "Best Female Vocal Performance Awards for 2007" for their work on that album.

This group is fantastic!
Recently, a friend from New Jersey told us about this amazing band. :) So very happy he did! We have since purchased this Cd, the Salt On Skin Ep, and the new Etarlis Cd. Buy it, you will be amazed. Please click onto the web site attached, for a very interesting article about the band. Cheers!

Found the pure beauty at last...
The more often I listen to this CD the more I love it. I liked the voice from the beginning but it took me a little while to find the beauty in the melodies. At first I thought there was nothing extraordinary about them but I was wrong. Especially "This feeling" stuck into my head after the last listening experience. Thank you for these relaxing, dreamlike sounds.

poignant collection from the matchless Mermaid Kiss!
MERMAID KISS – THE MERMAID KISS ALBUM: The Mermaid Kiss Album is the latest release from adult contemporary rockers Mermaid Kiss. This talented trio from Kington, England self produced this crossover collection. Evelyn Downing is the dreamy vocalist and flautist of the band. Jamie Field plays bass, acoustic and electric guitars. Andrew Garman provides keyboards, bass and drums. Their fourteen-track CD of originals is filled with poetic, picturesque lyrics. Their sound is ambient with shades of rock, pop and atmospheric instrumentation. Mermaid Kiss weaves progressive music with rich vocal harmonies. The album has a distinctive dramatic quality that blends mystical moods with whimsical woodwind moments. The album opens with 'Mermaid Kiss' an eloquent narrative enhanced by Evelyn's vivid versatile vocal control. Soft instrumentation creates a slow burning passion to the soundscape of the song. 'Soundchaser' is haunting featuring beguiling vocal blends. There is a soft subtle beat throughout that sounds sort of like a clock ticketing and melding with stark guitar and keyboards. Vocals are the focal point of this song and others on this poignant collection from the matchless Mermaid Kiss!

Phase9 entertainment

An album of rare emotional quality
Wow, this is a breath of fresh air. This three piece from Kington in the UK are made up of Evelyn Downing on vocals, flute and guitar, Jamie Field on guitars and bass and Andrew Garman on keyboards, bass and drums. This unlikely trio have managed to produce an album of rare emotional quality. Within, the songs sound sparse but are filled with such warmth and tuneful harmonies that one could easily drift off to Mermaid Kiss’ world.

The opening track MERMAID KISS oozes full of desire and want and makes what most other artists are producing seem insignificant. BREATHING UNDER WATER floats the listener away on a watery journey while BLIND tries to shut out all that is wrong with the world. SOUNDCHASER showcases Evelyn Downing’s dramatic interpretation and is reminiscent of Kate Bush from a long time ago. THIS FEELING features a flute intro worthy of Jethro Tull and progresses into a lushful tune filled with great imagery. The group show off their versatility on track 13, which is consequently called THIRTEEN and is sung in French. By the time you reach the end of the album, you will find yourself looking forward to listening to it again.

EDITOR'S PICK

Here and There

One of THE releases of this or any other year!!
This album hasn't left my CD player since I received it from Evelyn Downing, the vocalist for this UK based band.
This is awesome stuff! Such dreamy yet hard hitting lyrics. Beautiful harmonies blend seamlessly with superb musicianship. Guitarist Jamie Field and keyboardist/bassist Andrew Garman round out the rest of this band.
This is the closest to music nirvana as one can get. One of THE releases of this or any other year.

Sea of Tranquility

An emotionally charged album replete with gorgeous melodies, stunning vocal work
To say this is an emotionally charged album replete with gorgeous melodies, stunning vocal work and beautifully conceived ideas, would be an understatement. I am often left wondering what new music will appear on my desk to review and in an age where the MTV's and other TV channels of the music world bombard our senses with a barrage of absolute rubbish, it is truly rewarding to hear something so simple and yet refreshing as this band has produced. Mermaid Kiss have unleashed a really mesmeric album full of wonderful songs

David

Haunting and mysterious beauty
This CD ist astonishing different. With only a few instruments and an extremely exciting female voice they created a wonderful mood. And with the occasional flute it even sounds more beauty.
Romantic, dreamy, mistery, that's it!
