Black Pearl Records is more than proud to present the very timeless, beautiful but bittersweet Singer-Songwriter album of CLARA HILL.


Almost four years on from the eerie, atmospheric album "Pendulous Moon", Clara Hill returns with her sixth LP, showcasing once again her ceaseless urge for reinvention. Driven by a craving for spontaneity – to let her ideas Shine – and especially inspired by her travels, both earthly and spiritual, it’s an unusually contemplative record that’s also the first she’s written and produced alone. Conceived amid natural surroundings – from Mexico to Canada to Sicily – its idyllically acoustic, subtly psychedelic, sedately soulful folk largely eschews electronic embellishments in favour of a combination of reflective soul and the moods of 60s/70s Brazilian `tristeza´, making it an honest, instinctive, affecting expression of Hill’s voice at its purest.
