Philip Graham Adey works an effective technique by layering her voice into a chorus in these songs (it reminds me of the way Maya Beiser multiplies the sound of her cello). The effect evokes the feeling of being whispered secrets in a large space, like a cathedral. Favorite track: Intimate.
Ed Buckley

Ed Buckley This is a lovely set of 8 works for solo piano and voice (and 1 phone call). Adey layers her voice over a foundation of unadorned piano to wonderful effect. This third release is quite well done, and reminds me a great deal of Tori Amos in her quieter moments; think Yes Anastasia or Father Lucifer. This is another great find, and the H/T this time goes to Michael Reilly

Roy Meerkamper Very impressive work - beautiful vocals, emotional piano, haunting in a way. The Tori Amos comparison is very appropriate. Thanks to Micheal Reilly and Ed Buckley. Favorite track: Spirals.

about

Vesica:
a portal to another dimension
the child of creation's love affair with itself.

I will take you to a place where you can soothe yourself
Where you will remember all the lost parts that were once exiled,
now your ally
Where everything is allowed to be seen
and no one goes home alone

-A

The daughter of two concert organists, and a consummate performer, she lures audiences with her textured, melodic piano and warms them with a voice as gritty with soul as it is soaring with ambiance and mystery. ... more

Track Name: Power
Isn't it nice?
So nice to be young and in love
Baby the sky
feels different
and the wind is alive

Ooohh isn't it nice, so nice
to be young and in love?

Power
she's the best ride in town
she's always around
whenever you're down

Power
she's the best ride in town
she's knows you're around
looking to get down

Power
she's your best friend right now
you'll never disagree
when she's got you on her knees

If I cannot see
will you come to me
in dreams?

Isn't it nice,

to be young and in love?

the skies feel so different

Isn't it nice to be young and in love?
Track Name: Spirals
I'm bleeding on the inside
and nobody knows
There is a place
there is a sweet place
we have denied in this beautiful house
there is a place
there is a sweet place
I have denied
in this beautiful

it's in your blood girl
why do you bother?
putting it on
taking it off
putting it off
taking it on

there is a place
been denied in this beautiful
there is a place
there is a sweet place
we have denied
in this beautiful

the magic is dark coz it's dark on the inside
and once you weren't afraid of me, love
now you tremble

remember when we danced in the spiral of fire
together

once you weren't afraid of me, love
once you weren't afraid of this love
once we weren't afraid of this love

remember when we danced in the spiral of fire
together
Track Name: Perfection
I'd like to wake tomorrow
and have given up this show
I know my heart is ready
and more open than I know

like a window

I am sorry
you couldn't see me
through my paper masquerade
come and find where you're shadow's been
you left it
in my bed
(it's in my head)

dear lonely self,
you have never left
perfection

xo

with your feet on the ground
I need you
with your feet on the ground

right here
