Eumir Deodato

"I was in Japan and she called me from a studio in Bahamas", recalls Eumir. They met couple of days later in London and the results can be heard in tracks Hyperballad, You’ve Been Flirting Again and Isobel.

"She has developed a style and a music that I’ve never heard anything like in my life. When I heard her material, I freaked out, and I said, ’What are you doing ? This is crazy, this is so difficult, to propose this kind of style to the people.’ But she does, and she’s successful at it. There’s the liberty she takes with melodies and with harmony that sometimes apparently leaves clashes that are not really clashes, they’re concepts. It’s an acoustic principle, but she instinctively goes into that vein, and she blends all these things with a beautiful voice."
