Product Description

Product Description

Long anticipted debut album after a year of playing sold-out gigs in some of the most prestigious venues across the UK. Athena (pronounced A-thin-aaah) is an outstanding singer and songwriter. London born but raised in Greece, she has succesfully condensed the two-cultures into her work. All the songs are written in English and make her an unclassifiable genre. Elements of rock, classical music and jazz permeate her music. The albums production was handled by famed Greek composer/producer George Andreou with legendary producer Joe Boyd (Nick Drake, Fairport Convention. Pink Floyd) adding his vast experience to the mix.

Born in London but raised in Greece, singer-songwriter Athena has created an almighty stir with live performances at festivals like Womad, and a smattering of radio appearances. So overwhelming was the response that she was able to embark on a recent high-profile tour without an official record release or a record deal; a highly uncommon occurrence in 21st century Britain. But then Athena is indeed a rara avis. This debut release, which has been produced by Greek composer George Andreou and Joe Boyd (Nick Drake, Fairport Convention. Pink Floyd), illustrates her captivating talents perfectly. Drawing on jazz, folk, contemporary and classical music, the songs that occupy Breathe With Me are as intimate and sensual as the title suggest. Fans of Norah Jones will delight in coolly delivered, heartfelt ballads like "Green Eyes" and "To Be With You", while mellifluous compositions like the Nick Drake-esque "Recently Scarred" and the haunting "Inside Out" are just as alluring. It's hard, in fact, to find a weak track on the album. Brand new talent she may be, but Athena looks all set to become a household name. --Paul Sullivan.

This is such a lovely record! I heard Athena sing many of these songs in concert a year ago and have been looking forward to getting them on CD ever since, but the quality and production is even better than I dreamed and some of the newer songs like To Be With You, Inside Out and Wooden Horse are her best yet. Give this record some space and Athena's songs get deep into your soul, as if they are being sung directly for you. Her voice is amazing, so intimate and soulful. The accompaniments and arrangements are just beautifully subtle, they perfectly enhance everything, keeping the songs and THAT voice at centre stage as it should be - the most gorgeous album I've heard in ages. Congratulation to Athena and her co-producers Joe Boyd and George Andreou for a classic debut.

Format: Audio CD
Greek singer-songwriter Athena Andreadis has been causing quite a stir with her live shows and her self-released EP. This debut album, first released last year, is now given a new lease of life with two extra tracks - "For This Love Affair" and "This Life".

However, neither new track eclipses the earlier offerings. Athena writes confessional love songs, though the poetic atmosphere is more Christina Rossetti than Sylvia Plath. Most moving is the ghostly Satie-esque title track, full of muted passion, which was the original set's closer; the soaring "Eden (Garden State)" is another high point, Athena's soaring soprano framed by a minimalist backing track.

This is a wonderful listen, like the previous unofficial cd which needs a wider release. Her voice has a rare delicacy and subtlety, and its no surprise it's caused such a stir in such a short space of time.

I heard a few notes from this song over a charity advert and was hooked! I sent for the album on the strength of those notes, and was not disappointed. I love every track!! Athenas voice is stunning, well worth a listen.

Athena sings love with a very original style; 14 extraordinary songs about love and its difficulties, all sang and writen by her. I litterally fell in love with this album and I hope you will enjoy listening to it too.
