"a sound that nods to Fleetwood Mac and the early Joni Mitchell. Ms. Bulat has a voice well suited to interiority, warm and honeyed" - The New York Times
"Canada's legacy of female folk legends is secured in Basia Bulat, who has crafted the album of the year in Tall Tall Shadow." - Huffington Post
Frequentemente comparada a pesos pesados como Joni Mitchell e Stevie Nicks, e após partilhar palcos com gente ilustre como Nick Cave, Andrew Bird, St. Vincent, The National ou Arcade Fire, a singer-songwriter canadiana de ascendência polaca Basia Bulat apresenta-se em Portugal pela primeira vez para uma data única no Mercado Negro, onde apresentará o seu terceiro álbum, Tall Tall Shadow.
Álbum do ano para o Huffington Post e para Bob Odenkirk (Saul Goodman em "Breaking Bad"), Tall Tall Shadow - produzido por Tim Kingsbury dos Arcade Fire e por Mark Lawson, responsável pelo aclamado terceiro álbum da banda de Montréal, The Suburbs - é o ponto mais alto da carreira da multiinstrumentalista canadiana, cujos dois primeiros álbuns, Oh, My Darling e Heart of My Own lhe valeram nomeações para os prestigiados prémios Polaris e Juno. Aclamada por publicações de renome como a The New Yorker, a Pitchfork ou a SPIN, o concerto de Aveiro será uma das últimas oportunidades de ver Basia Bulat a subir ao palco de uma sala pequena.
Secret City Records will release Basia Bulat’s long-awaited third album, Tall Tall Shadow on October 1st. Co-produced with Grammy-winning engineer Mark Lawson and Arcade Fire’s Tim Kingsbury, Tall Tall Shadow marks something of a departure from her earlier work. “This time around I felt braver,” Basia says, “I wanted to play with electric and electronic sounds, exploring the boundaries of the folk music some people know me for.”
Tall Tall Shadow follows 2007’s Polaris-nominated debut, Oh, My Darling, and her Juno-nominated 2010 album Heart of My Own, which was praised by NPR for its focus on her “unwavering voice, a single powerful element.” Tall Tall Shadow is inspired in equal parts by tragic loss and abundant joy. “Writing songs,” she says, “I've been trying to just get out of my own way - just trying to be truthful with myself about the kind of thoughts and feelings that are coming up.”
In the studio, Bulat says, “I wanted a challenge … something different,” which her co-producers helped to provide. “Mark hears things in my songs that surprise me,” she says, adding “Tim’s my good luck charm; he can play almost anything and everything, and my best vocal takes happen whenever he’s in the room.”
Basia has garnered great critical acclaim over the years; SPIN praises the singer’s “bright harmonies and … resonant alto voice” while Pitchfork praises her “rare, extraordinary voice.” She has toured in the U.S., Canada, Europe and Australia sharing the stage with artists including Andrew Bird, St Vincent, Beirut, tUnE-yArDs, Arcade Fire and Nick Cave. She has collaborated with Owen Pallett, who created orchestral arrangements of a selection of Basia’s songs that have been performed by many Canadian orchestras. Basia has also been invited in recent years to aid in feting Canadian legends Leonard Cohen (Glenn Gould Prize, 2012) and Daniel Lanois (Governor General’s Award, 2013).
