audio ‘stache: PALOMA FAITH Asks Do You Want The Truth Or Something Beautiful?

“I’m inspired by the queens of tragedy – Billie Holiday, Edith Piaf and Judy Garland.   Then throw a bit of Nick Cave, Etta James and PJ Harvey into the mix. Add all my influences from avant garde cinema and you start to come close. My visual style is fancy dress as I never grew out of dressing up boxes! My early performances were David Lynch meets William Blake at the circus. Welcome to my world….” – Paloma Faith

PALOMA FAITH set to release her debut album Do You Want The Truth Or Something Beautiful? in the U.S. digitally via SIN/Sony UK  on August 31, 2010 .  The 25-year-old British singer-songwriter and actress’ album is certified platinum in the UK and stayed on the Top 40 album charts for over 40 weeks. Paloma wrote this album in the UK, Sweden and America collaborating with Ed Harcourt, Jodi Marr, Greg Kurstin, Steve Robson and Jorgen Elofsson, and recorded it entirely in London.

Paloma Faith has been collecting critical acclaim since her debut UK release in 2009. Her songs shimmer with soul, anchored by the hugely colorful stamp of her idiosyncratic persona; drawing on diverse influences from music, literature, art and cinema. Paloma Faith is an artist in the truest sense of the word, and one who will surely resonate with a correspondingly broad audience.

Like her music, Paloma’s story never fails to thrill. In the lead up to her becoming a singer, she has been a magician’s assistant, trained contemporary dancer, St. Martin’s alumni with an MA in theatre direction, a performer in burlesque shows, and an actress, appearing in

St Trinians and the new Terry Gilliam film The Imaginarium of Dr Parnassus.
