Product Description

Product Description

Second release from critically acclaimed singer/songwriter Stavia Blunt. Like the rest of her life, Stavia’s route to the recording studio was not straight-forward. She grew up in The Great Rift Valley, Kenya, and was taught the Piano by a group of fairly fierce Fransciscan nuns. Surrounded by an eclectic mix of musical styles - classical (her late Greek mother was a trained opera singer), pop and the varied sounds of Kenyan pop and tribal music, Stavia had a rich musical palette from which to draw. Although she started writing songs on the piano at about the age of 6, this part of her life looked destined to remain a hobby relegated to the privacy of her bedroom. She was sent to boarding school in England at the age of 11, and her life took a more serious turn, studying Medicine at Oxford and subsequently training as a neurologist. Stavia’s seemingly faultless career hid the fact that her life went awry at the age of 20 when she had a car accident and her mother was killed. It was during this period, cacooned in the safety of her attic bedroom, that song-writing became a therapy. Tracks: Falling / I Don't Need You / Just Can't Help It / Break Loose / Broken Hearted / Vulnerable / Nothing So Loud / Lucky Day / Infatuation / Coming Home / The Tide Has Turned.

5.0 out of 5 stars Worth her weight in gold 4 April 2005
Format:Audio CD
I bought the first album 'The Way You Are' after hearing one of the tracks - 'A Different Song' - when Stavia was interviewed on the Johnny Walker show a couple of years ago. I loved the album and pracitcally wore it out. I was surprised not to have heard more of her music on air.
The second album seemed a long time coming, but has been worth the wait. Unlike many second albums, 'Deep Waters' shows an artist in bloom, taking her music even beyond the first, excellent album. Deep Waters is a truly wonderfull album which I strongly recommend to anyone who enjoys well crafted songs, astute lyrics and tasteful musicianship. What is the music like? Not like anything else really - some of the songs are reminiscent of Fleetwood Mac's best; Stavia's voice is refreshingly individual - clear and unaffected, a cross between Carly Simon and Eva Cassidy; whilst the band and production add just the right musical touches in just the right places. This is pop-rock (with a touch of folk) at its very best.

5.0 out of 5 stars Top notch 29 Jun 2005
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Within seconds of hearing Stavia perform live on the radio, I was scouring the internet for her albums. She's been compared to Dido but Stavia wears her own mantle - As you might expect, some of her songs are about love lost and found, but they are written and sung in a way you know she's been to the depths and heights of both. Darker elements (listen to 'Nothing So Loud') are beautifully balanced by the light-hearted flirtatious teases, as in the brilliant 'Lucky Day' (about the loss of youthfulness) and 'Infatuation'. This is a super album full of interesting songs from a truly original singer-songwriter and will not be off my stereo for weeks to come.

4.0 out of 5 stars Deep Waters Is Lovely, Charming, and Addictive! 9 Jan 2006
By Rocky - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
A few months ago I had no idea who Stavia was. I accidently came across her online one day when looking for more piano- pop artists (yes I'm a piano junkie to the highest degree) and I took a few listens to Stavia. I grew to love the way her music sounded, soft with an underlying power just like Dido. Now as for her sounding like Dido in a way she does but she certainly has her own style in her music that seperates them. I would call Stavia's album a mixture of soft rock/ adult alternative and so for fans of such music you should try Stavia out.

Here is a review for the whole album:

1)Falling- A- Lovely song, with some romantic lyrics that would make anyone sigh dreamily.

2) I Don't Need You- A- One of the strongest songs on here, and would be a great single. Not sure if it is or not but I would make it a single with it's strength of music in the background, and the way Stavia sings it makes it addictive.

3) Just Can't Help It- B+- Pales somewhat in comparison to the previous track but definitely is catchy and I like the sound of the song.

4) Break Loose- A- This song is very beautiful with an introduction of a piano and then in the chorus a powerful guitar sound making this song unforgettable.

5) Broken- Hearted- A- I really enjoy this song the way Stavia sings it. Catchy with some awesome background sound I think this is single- worthy as well.

6) Vulnerable- B+ - A much softer, slower song with a charm to it that catches you immediately. Stavia sure knows how to take you up on some tracks and then down gently and then song just flows lovely.

7) Nothing So Loud- B - This song is not bad I like it but I think it sort of pales in comparison to the rest of the album but I still enjoy it.

8) Lucky Day- B+ - The album picks up again with this more upbeat song and I enjoy the sound of the song.

9) Infatuation- A- - Another more soft, slow song and Stavia is as charming as ever on this song. I like the way she put this song together and I really like the lyrics.

10) Coming Home- B - I consider this the only real song I pass. It is not that good sounding of a song to me unfortunately, the beginning sounds all right but the chorus isn't that strong to me.

11) The Tide Has Turned- A- An excellent ending to the album. I love this song it is slower, with Stavia's beautiful voice coming out in the chorus. The chorus is indeed the highlight of this song and the mood of the song is lovely.

Overall I really find this a worthwhile album. Stavia is a talented women with lovely vocals and a taste for great music. I hope she continues to grow with her music for I would love to hear more from her in the future. I think she will only get better.

If you want to hear some of her music clips go to cdbaby.com and type in her name.
