marta collica

Marta Collica is an Italian songwriter, singer and multi-instrumentalist. Marta's voice is unmistakeable - beautifully emotive, dark and dreamy with a smouldering intensity. Now based in Berlin, she is a key member of the John Parish Band (composer and producer for PJ Harvey, Eels, Tracy Chapman etc) and is also well know for her long term collaboration with Australian songwriter Hugo Race with their duo, Sepiatone. Marta plays guitar, keyboards and percussion with an original style that combines minimal arrangements - seemingly delicate but also distorted, with an undercurrent of psychedelia. 

Marta currently is presenting her third solo album Inverno (2017) which she co-produced with guitarist and composer Cam Butler. It was recorded over a period of two years in Berlin, Melbourne, Paris and Italy and adds to her long, rich history of recordings and collaborations: her two solo albums - About Everything (2009), Pretty and Unsafe (2007) released in Italy and Germany; three albums as duo Sepiatone, most recently Echoes On (2015); three albums with John Parish Band - Screenplay (2013), Plum (2007), Once Upon A Little Time (2005); four albums with Hugo Race & The True Spirit; the Playing Carver album - a project inspired by the writings of Raymond Carver, written and recorded in Paris with Atlas Crocodile, Marc Chonier (Gaspard La Nuit) and John Parish, and last year's album Silent Town (2016), exploring borders between mediterranean world music and anglo songwriting, recorded with the italo-palestinian band Dounia.

"Dieses Album ist eine sehr intime und private Angelegenheit. Zwölf Tracks in denen die Unmittelbarkeit ein Schlüssel zur Ästhetik ist und auch eine Arbeitsweise, freilich danach kommt die Melodik. 
Die Lieder wurden von einer erdachten Zeit inspiriert in der die Reflexion die Oberhand über die Aktion hat und nah an die Grenze der Unbeweglichkeit mündet. Die Grundstimmung ist nächtlich und nachdenklich (Clandestine)".
