Bach-arach To The Future! We love exclusives at AWIL especially when they’re as excellent as Fiona Fey’s forthcoming CD, Naïve Wisdom. It’s a triumphant debut in every respect, beginning with her exquisite voice, which has such rare qualities of depth and tone, plus multiple personas ranging from sultry to smooth, and strident to playful. Ubiquitous percussionist/vocalist Rey Yusuf - on our show just two weeks ago playing davul with Daemonia Nymphe - adds extra beauty and perfect harmony to Fiona’s unplugged version of ‘For You’ on this AWIL. The pair are often to be found singing together, with the folk feminist superwomen of Tell Tale Tusk, when Fiona isn’t busking solo in Columbia or Portobello Road. Fellow Tuskette and violinist Anna Lowenstein is also a key contributor to Naïve Wisdom along with Irish London fiddler James Patrick Gavin, so Fiona has collected together some of London’s finest musicians to frame her tremendous talent.
