Anna Calvi debut album announced

Domino have announced the release of the self-titled debut album from Anna Calvi, on 17th January 2011 (in the UK & Europe, March 1st in the US).

From the press release:

Co-produced by Rob Ellis and recorded in London and France, Anna Calvi’s debut is an astonishingly confident record; the unique strengths of her songwriting, singing and guitar playing all jumping out of the speaker together.

The ghosts of Nina Simone and Maria Callas lurk in the corners of Calvi’s muse, as does the classical romanticism of Ravel and Debussy, a set of disparate influences informing Calvi’s thoroughly modern music.

Live, Anna Calvi has adopted an intimate backing band consisting of Mally Harpaz on guitar, harmonium and percussion, and Daniel Maiden-Wood on drums, a trio which is capable of producing incendiary performances of high drama.
