Overview

Seven Seas

Vocalist/keyboardist/songwriter Marcome has been touted as being Canada's counterpoint to Enya, and she sounds very similar to Higher Octave recording artist Robin Frederick (How High? How Far?). Marcome has a strong, pure voice (about half the cuts are jazz vocalise) which she often echoes and overdubs until the blend is almost a new instrument. Marcome's many styles include the pensive ballads "All Alone" and "Seven Seas," the sassy counterpoint of "From Within" and "Yeku," the alluring siren song of "Breathless" and "Librarsi," and the Brazilian vocalise tradition (in duet with a male voice) of "Parada." Marcome does not push the lyrics forward as one might expect from Streisand. She blends her voice as one of many instruments creating an inviting atmosphere where one can choose to relate to the words or not. The keyboard orchestrations, augmented with percussion are sophisticated and rich, exotic...and surprisingly spiritual. Mark Langis's work on fretless bass is superb.
