Product Description

Product Description

Debut album from the British singer-songwriter, which includes a number of songwriting collaborations with the likes of Sia, Emeli Sandé, and Guy Chambers. From the Roots Up is described by Delilah as a dark, soulful, melodic pop album with a range of influences from the contemporary music scene, such as dub-step and drum and bass.

BBC Review

Perhaps best known as guest vocalist on the Chase & Status single Time, the initial assumption might be that Delilah’s debut album unleashes her as a full-blown dubstep diva. But it’s made clear, and pretty quickly at that, that From the Roots Up is an entirely different beast. Which leaves us with the question: who, in that case, is Delilah?

The obvious answer comes in the form of an inimitable voice. Regardless of production or instrumentation, it’s by far and away the star of From the Roots Up. Some of the backwards loops and off-kilter beats – in particular, on opener Never Be Another – could potentially feel messy or clunky, but it’s all held together by a distinctive vocal.

Nothing on From the Roots Up is as immediate as Go’s breathy interpolation of Ain’t Nobody. Such practices are a common theme throughout the album, snatching verses here and there from a range of classics. In spite of co-writers as diverse as Andy Burrows (formerly Razorlight, sometime We Are Scientists drummer) and Plan B, and samples that wink out at you from an ocean of peculiar ideas, there’s a definite theme: From the Roots Up is one long, atmospheric backdrop, the perfect setting for a smoky, bluesy tone.

The album houses an overall trippy, chilled setting, but simultaneously, with a voice so charismatic and quietly concentrated, it’s hard not to actively pay attention. It could so easily have been music to get casually lost in, but thanks to Delilah herself, background music this ain’t.

So, the question of who Delilah is gets answered with candid, atypical gusto. Where to place her is another matter entirely; but, in many ways, that’s the beauty of From the Roots Up.

There are parallels with Sia Furler – perhaps not sonically, but more in the sense that Delilah’s sound, so offhand yet audacious, might just be too out of the ordinary for the public at large. But, as Sia has recently proven, the cream will eventually rise to the top. Here’s hoping the lead times for Delilah’s reign aren’t too protracted.

Delilah has the most beautiful, emotional voice and is such a talented song writer. I know this is music that I will play for years to come, it is really gorgeous, insightful and well produced. This girl deserves a phenomenal career.

Format: Audio CD
Delilah (aka Paloma Ayana Stoecker) has a voice to make you sit up and
take notice. Her recent dalliance with Chase and Status aside, 'From The
Roots Up' may well stake a claim to be one of the finest albums we'll
hear this year. She produces a rich, sinuous noise with her marvelous
instrument; by turns soulful, enervating, rich and emotionally captivating,
it saturates the twelve tracks in this collection with a rare kind of magic.

Her muse is largely reflective and melancholic but it is, nonetheless, not
the kind of music to drag you down into the Gloomy Sunday dumps. Indeed,
listening to the utterly beautiful 'Shades Of Grey' for the umpteenth time
as I am writing this, it is impossible not to be touched deeply by her
total engagement with the gorgeous melody and touching lyrics. When she
sings "Through the darker shades of grey I see beauty in the rain" it is
impossible to do anything other than completely believe in her authenticity.

So too with the jittery shadows of 'Go' with its respectful nod to Chaka Khan's
'Ain't Nobody'; the deliciously sprightly arrangement of 'Only You'; the luminous
vocal harmonies of '21' and the stripped-down rhythmic intensity of 'Insecure'.

Final track 'Tabitha, Mummy and Me', however, truly is the icing on the cake.
A song which sublimely demonstrates her innate grasp of the spirit of the blues.

I seem to have discovered another disc for my desert island. I love it to bits!

Essential.

A truly amazing album that just gets better with repeated listens. The attention to detail is outstanding, invest in a good pair of headphones though to really appreciate this music. Her voice is soulful and emotional and the tunes are catchy and intricate. The best £8 I have ever spent,truly an album for life.

If you are currently single - this will make you want to fall in love.
If you are currently in a relationship - this will make you remember why you fell in love.
If you are currently heartbroken - this will let you know you are not alone.

An exquisite collection of work covering a broad range of emotions by one of the brightest singer/songwriter talents to emerge on the British music scene in a long time. Delilah's voice is quite simply the perfect vessel to carry the sincerity and feelings of this beautiful arrangement of songs. Be it the stripped down piano pieces or the pulsing urban vibe that weaves through the album - it smacks of class and sophistication from beginning to end.

A fantastic debut which I almost gave four stars to just because I know there is so much more to come (Amazon: you might need to consider a sixth star by the next release). I've been waiting for this album to come out for almost a year - it has had heavy rotation since it's arrival and only sounds better with each listen. It's pop but with great style and substance that is usually only found by exploring more 'alternative' genres. Delilah demonstrates a maturity beyond her years both in content and execution. The biggest test for me is seeing an artist live, which I did last year and her voice is as powerful and on he money as it is on a glossy recorded studio piece.

If you find you like this be sure to get the EP's that were released before this which contain some material not on this album but equally as good and you can download the 2-4am mixtape for free from her official website ...and most importantly - try to see her live! I can't promote this artist enough, she has me completely under her spell.

I purchased this album having heard only one track...isn't something I normally do but occasionally you come across an artist that warrants this and Delilah is one artist. From track 5...Only You to the remix of Go this artist has an unusual and unmistakeable quality to her voice that is almost haunting. Love it well worth listening to.

This album is excellent and just the sound i expected. Loved it! Hate comparing artists but found myself listening to the album and thinking about Morcheeba, portishead and massive attack tunes, which is not a bad thing, if anyone remembers them its a massive compliment!
