FARA This Is My World Blackmoon Records
A long standing contributing voice to the arts community in Canada, Fara Jaylene Katcheech Palmer is just now letting her solo talents be heard and recognised. At age (twelve) she found herself sharing a stage with Buffy St. Marie, a performance which opened up the door to subsequent vocal stints with Susan Aglukark, Shingoose and Willy Dunn. Consequently, the singer's obvious gift has been readily recognised by the Canadian Native Arts Foundation and by more of Canada's top recording artists, after her voice was solicited to appear on the David Foster song River of Love alongside Dan Hill, Amy Sky and Roch Voisine. It is not surprising that the Vancouver born singer of Cree Native Indian heritage traces her musical influences to names like Aretha Franklin, Whitney Houston, Billy Holiday, and Dinah Washington...This is my World is the aptly titled album that concentrates Fara's musical interests into a succinct twelve song list embellished by spanish, dance and native flourishes within the contemporary pop songwriting that is her mainstay. A graceful and artistically exceptional album that we expect will place Fara within the orbit of some of those names she performed with.
