Night of the Deep Bloom
Singer/songwriter/musician Atoosa has been performing locally in New York City and touring in support of her second full-length album, Night of the Deep Bloom, produced by Brad Albetta and Cameron Greider. She describes her latest CD as "complete darkness with one faint light on," created out of a difficult time of struggle for her. She courageously uses her life experiences in her songs to "tell the truth from (her) perspective," hoping all the while to "spread hope" for her listeners, "no matter how dark it is." In poetic piano songs like "Yellow Reversal" and "Question for You," she explores love and hope, devastation and desire, in her unflinchingly honest search for truth. Her intensely personal lyrics, captivating vocals, and magnetic stage presence have been transcending musical boundaries while garnering audience attention and critical acclaim. Atoosa is a classically-trained pianist and self-taught guitar player. Her early influences were incredibly diverse - from Beethoven to The Police to Suzanne Vega - but all contain the common thread of great storytelling, a legacy that Atoosa intends to continue with her stirringly hopeful songs. Derek Sivers, President of CDBaby.com, lauds Atoosa as "creative and delicious," and CollectedSounds.com wrote, "I can't wait to hear what she does next!" Her next effort has arrived and lives up to the expectation and buzz. With it's release, Atoosa excitedly looks forward to continued local gigs, touring and media appearances, and especially, "learning more about this world we inhabit," and continuing to inspire audiences by "having the freedom to be who you really are." Because to Atoosa, that is what her music is all about.
