City Canyons Records announces the release of "slow burn" a remarkably original album by a new creative force from the UK, ANEMO. Release of "slow burn" will be supported by a North American radio promotion program and a full scale publicity and public relations campaign both in traditional media and on the internet. Prior to its general release date on September 6, "slow burn" will be available in limited quantities online at CD Baby and at the City Canyons Records Online Store.
ANEMO is bracingly fresh, featuring its own definitive sound which combines crunchy drum and expressive guitar ranging from pop-rock to metal with knock-out stratospheric vocals, courtesy of lovely diva Hazelle Woodhurst. That sound and those vocals wrap around strong edgy lyrics and songwriting from the team of Woodhurst, Kingsley Sage (keyboards) with additional contributions from Matt Palmer (guitar). ANEMO completed their first CD in late 2001 and made first public appearance at the Hippodrome Theatre in September for the BBC.
Hailing from Brighton in the UK, ANEMO (which means "changing forms") was formed in summer 2001 in Brighton, England. The ANEMO core is the songwriting partnership of vocalist Hazelle and keyboard player and producer Kingsley Sage. This core is then supported by the remarkable Matt Palmer on guitar. A talented "live" crew joins the trio for appearances at UK venues.
ANEMO has appeared at London"s Hippodrome Theatre for the BBC, the 2003 MIDEM festival in Cannes, France, the 2004 SXSW music conference in Austin, Texas, and also played at the X04 festival at the Brighton Centre in April 2004 and the BBC summer stage at Whity City in June 2004.
Prior to ANEMO, Hazelle worked as an actress with roles, amongst others, in BBC Scotland's "Invasion Earth" and "Shakespeare in Love". She also worked in Stanley Kubrick's "Eyes Wide Shut". Kingsley Sage worked previously in the 5 piece band Jumbo who released 2 singles on the Stoat Records label and have produced material for a range of artists including Icelandic indie-hipsters Bellatrix (for the "Diamond Gods" Bowie tribute album). Matt Palmer spends most of his non-music time off the beaches of Devon surfing.
