Top-20 countdown - no.02

Anna Calvi - Anna Calvi

"London born, with an Italian father that instilled into her her first musical memories, from Maria Callas and Debussy to Rolling Stones and blues, she studied violin at first, then guitar. Influenced by many musical genres and artists, encouraged by none other than the grand Brian Eno and Nick Cave, produced by Rob Ellis (known from his P.J. Harvey productions) and the collaboration of Mally Harpaz on keyboards and Daniel Maiden Wood on drums, her first record proves to be a diamond of rare beauty and very possibly one of the best records of the year".
I was writing that at the beginning of the year in my review for the free-press magazine Screw (issue 25). It proved me right. And I am looking forward to hear what she does next.
