Small Circle of Light

by Ramona Silver

Released 2011
Released 2011
A unique blend of melodic pop/rock guitar and moody keyboard balladry, rich with harmonic vocal textures.
NOTES
Ramona Silver’s 6th release, Small Circle of Light, taps a range of musical influences from the 1970s-80s: Til Tuesday to The Carpenters; Harry Nilsson to Nanci Griffith; Brian Wilson to Queen. The blend of these, however, comes out distinctly Silver’s, 2011. Trading off between guitars and keyboards, Silver's new batch of songs go beyond her trend of eclectic pop/rock with a new maturity of sounds and poignant lyrics.

Silver’s trademark Les …

Death By Candy

by Ramona Silver

Released 2001
Released 2001
Wit, style, substance with intelligent lyrics, smart melodies and muscle. Powerful without the riot grrl trappings.
NOTES
"Death by Candy," combines the melodicism of "Ultrasound" (1998) with the grittier guitar textures of Silver's "You & Me & Hell" (1995)--witty, insightful slices of pop all sung with soul and open-hearted grace.

The songs of "Death By Candy" work together as an integrated whole and while there are obvious standout singles like the lyrical "The Saint of 99," featuring Silver's luxuriously luscious vocals, or the gorgeously delicate "Motherbee," the disc tastes best when swallowed whole.

The melodic highs …

Ultrasound

by Ramona Silver

Released 1998
Released 1998
She sounds like a sisterly version of Jonathan Richman in her oblique street-simple yet street smart lyrics that posit such philosophical puzzles as "Being's just a reaction to everything we can't control" ...
NOTES
What has marked the work of Ramona Silver up to this point has been her vivid songcraft and her obvious need to do things her way with imagination and style. Silver steers clear of the paint-by-numbers rock acts...a collection of tunes that rely on her colorful vocals, calliope keyboards, and delicious hooks. It's a supremely savvy effort.

You & Me & Hell

by Ramona Silver

Released 1995
Released 1995
An off-kilter cluster of sweet and sour voices on the propulsive chorus of "Adapter," the first track on her promising, rough-hewn debut.
NOTES
An off-kilter cluster of sweet and sour Ramona Silver voices on the propulsive chorus of "Adapter," the first track on her promising, rough-hewn debut.

A seemingly endless collection of infectiously edgy, smart-ass tunes.

Powerful without the riot grrrl trappings or banshee wailings...the more you listen, the more you like.

NEWS

NEW EP -- RS is working on a new EP, with songs harkening back to the first release, You & Me & Hell (1995). It feels a bit creatively selfish!  Raw guitar energy is up and triumphant sounding against dark themes such as depression and separation.  "Run to Hide" and "Lazy Bones" are direct conversations with the saboteur in my head. "Ageless Pill (Called Playing)" and "Exercise the Spirit" call out the crazy speed of life we allow ourselves to live at. Yet a commitment to joyful living rises to the surface. Sneak audio peaks coming soon...
