PRAISE FOR 'SHADES'
“Veering from the personal to the profound, Shades is a darkly poetic confrontation of modern turmoil…
Such is the virtuosity and accomplishment of her playing...
It’s hard to believe it is the work of just one person.”
"Vera Sola's music is as timeless, contrasting, evanescent and elegant as the artist's visual world...
Shades is well above the hunt for the next playlist: it tells the story, always wonderful, of an artist
who reveals herself to the world with
an absolute masterpiece."
“[What] Quentin Tarantino soundtracks are made for: coolly retro and rooted in spaghetti-western desert soul…for fans of: Nancy Sinatra, Nicole Atkins and civil disobedience.”
“A masterful story-teller that exudes an effortless mystique. She sweetly coos…in the deranged way that Nick Cave would take on in the role of Stagger Lee…It is performative, theatrical and spellbinding.”
“Vera Sola twists the singer-songwriter rulebook in fascinating directions.”
“This is undeniably music that needed to be made.”
“An utterly singular talent.”
