ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Ethereal gothic singer-songwriter, composer and fantasy illustrator born in Spain. A world of fantasy: dark fairy tales, romantic ghost stories, and "other creatures" that dwell in the boundaries between dream and awareness inspired by her personal experience with sleep paralysis, night horrors and hypnagogia... old fears and passions... ancient shadows

Her debut album, Ancient Shadows is presented in a DELUXE EDITION in a three folded digipack, with two fully illustrated booklets (32 pages)and a collection of 19 illustrated song-tales that take you to a ride through the haunting and spectral realm she creates with her sorrowful eerie but sensuous music, led by an angelic and silky voice that invites you to shed your own cultivated defences. Wistful, evocative, pure and meaningful.
+info at: http://www.yidneth.com/ancientshadows

Ancient Shadows (the ghost and the fairy) is inspired by old fairy books and gothic literature: haunted houses, mourning willows, nymphs,vengeful fairies, ghosts fluttering like moths around the living... A world of spectral romance and intense melancholia. Also, her personal experience with sleep paralysis, night horrors and hypnagogia is a constant influence in her lyrics.

Often compared to Tori Amos. Kate Bush and Enya, Priscilla claims to be nourished by Tears for Fears (Orzábal lyrics), Cocteau Twins and most importantly her fascination for film scores and soundtracks. Still she truly carves out an original image for herself and is more than the sum total of her music influences creating an unique and personal soundscape that is difficult to put a finger on or describe.

-“Without any doubt one of the biggest talents to break into the fairy scene” (David Riché, Fairies World TM)

-“Like Venus emerging triumphant from the sea” (Diario de Navarra)

-"This artist may be on the brink of defining a new style of music" (Gods of Music)

Beautiful
Beautiful CD, moving and inspiring. Very ethereal. Found her music by reading an article on her in Faerie magazine. Her music is a wonderful insight into a beautiful person. Amazing CD with a moving story.

Best concept album by an Indie artist...
A 63 minute journey into the dark world of fantasy and dreams. The music stirs the emotions, and the lyrics compel one to think on a profound level. This is one of the best concept albums I have heard in a long time!

Collected Sounds

Absolutely gorgeous
Everything about this album is perfect. Not just the voice, musicianship, songwriting, and production. The art on the package (and the website) is beautiful.
Priscilla's lovely voice is nicely layered and moves over the melodies seemingly effortless. As you may have guessed from the title, there's a bit of the fantasy/ghosty/fairy realm here. It makes me want to sit on the floor of my old Victorian house, turn off all the lights, light candles, and wait for the ghosts to come.

Good production
I really love Spain.
I love diversity. I don't think that Tori, Kate and Enya are the best because that would be saying that only English speaking people are the best.
Anyone who wants to be something they are not, namely English for the sake of money and fame is someone that I can't relate with. I don't think that everyone should reject their culture to adopt English culture because they think it is popular.
Good production though

Wonderful
A Must Have! The CD is great and I can only recommend it, it's a fariytale :)

Enchanting and Breathtaking!
I first became aware of this artist on Mp3.com some years back when it was a boon for the indies. Then, as now, I felt this young lady was truly and remarkably gifted. The music and vocals manage to envelope you into a musical silky ethereal strand where you hope the recording never stops. Definately worth the purchase price if you are a fan of Ethereal or New Age music.

A great effort from a beautifully gifted artist! Let Priscilla transport you to another place and time where
suprises lie around every corner and where the dark shadows
hold many secrets waiting to be discovered!

Just Plain Wonderful!
Priscilla Hernandez -- I was first introduced to her music via Mystic Age Internet Radio, and have the great pleasure of having her as a 'friend' on EnchantedFolk.com. I found her music to be not only ethereally enchanting, but always a superior performance as well. Of the many albums from various artists I possess, "Ancient Shadows" has become my all-time favourite, and I am constantly introducing others to her music. Well done, Priscilla -- this album gets a definite 5 stars from me, and more if it were possible!
