Fabiana Passoni, A True Rising Star in The Making As She Tells Her Fans To “Dim The Lights”
I know it was a long time in the making, but after surviving chemotherapy in February and recently celebrating a birthday, it gives me a great honor and distinct pleasure in mentioning about one of my favorite Brazilian artists:
This is Fabiana Passoni’s third album and first foray into doing English songs. If I had to describe the album in just a few words, it is simply magnificent. Two thumbs up, way up!
From the song I instantly fell in love with the most during the last few months in 2012, her slow ballad version of Minnie Riperton and Richard Rudolph’s “Lovin’ You” strikes a very delicate chord. Then comes the Olivia Newton-John early 1980’s hit, “Magic”–simply amazing. “You’ll Never Find” gets a steady bossa beat, while the late Michael Jackson’s “Rock With You” features plenty of high notes.
“Ain’t Nobody” and the Carpenters hit tune of the 1970’s “Close To You” round out this superb album.
According to Wilbur Music’s press release, they simply showered Fabiana with lots of praise and sincere compliments:
“Release of this EP begins a new year for Fabiana after a successful 2012 with her recognition as Best Brazilian female singer living outside (of) Brazil in the U.S. by the 2012 Brazilian International Press Awards…and a special sold-out performance to a hometown crowd in Pocos de Caldas, Brazil.
Working closely with the band members…with Brazilian beats infused with percussion, Fabiana’s trademark musical style. Her interpretations are soft and delicate and leave you paying close attention to each lyric.”
Fabiana herself said of this album, “The acceptance of Loving You and Rock With You at my shows confirms that my fans also like to hear music in their native language. With Dim The Lights, I can connect even more with my English-speaking fans and still deliver the musical style that is definitely my own – Brazilian!”
She will be busy over the coming weeks and months, with a tour throughout Southern California and gearing up for a spring/summer tour, with I am sure she will keep fans up to date on her website–www.fabianapassoni.com
And if you want to really get your feet moving after hearing those slower ballads, Fabiana has already penned a song for the 2014 FIFA World Cup titled, “Samba Fuleco” (clever logo showing a soccer ball/futbol tucked safely inside Brazil’s national flag as if it was some type of suitcase). A true “party in the street” indeed, and this artist is definitely carving a true path of passion, courage, and determination in being a true survivor. I hope fans can pick up her third album, since it is a very nice set of songs. No question, this is her best album to date.
For this and many other reasons too numerous to mention, I salute Fabiana Passoni–a true Rising Star in every sense of the word. I wish her continued best wishes and good health, now and always.
