"'New Siberia' is a special album to me because the songs are wiser," says songwriter Antje Duvekot. "They have an age to them that should resonate with anyone who's struggled through a difficult period and come out better.There's something really sweet in being able to look back on a journey like that, from a darker, younger self to a better, older place." That might not seem like a startling statement from most songwriters. But Duvekot is not most songwriters. For years, her songs have been critically praised for their hard-won wisdom, dark-eyed realism, and street-smart romanticism. Fans will certainly find all of that in 'New Siberia.' Blending uncommonly beautiful vocals with one of the sharpest poetic sensibilities in her field, Duve-kot has a remarkable ability to make us believe she is whispering secrets in our ear, and we know that she believes every word she sings.
After years of writing music for other artists, as well as working on movies and TV shows, Phil Roy knows music. He’s been playing guitar since he was 9, attended the Berklee College of Music at 17, and headed to Los Angeles to front two bands during the ‘80s before focusing exclusively on songwriting. Now, he’s struck out on his own as a solo artist. Click the link above to hear Roy perform live in concert from WXPN and World Cafe Live in Philadelphia.After moving to Philadelphia, Roy released his smooth, sincere debut album, Grouchyfriendly, and followed it with two more folksy soul albums. His newest disc, The Great Longing, sounds inventive and lush, and features guests such as Amos Lee, Madeleine Peyroux and fellow rising local Melody Gardot. - NPR Music
