Taken from the new album by Chantal Acda, “Bounce Back”, coming April 21st at Glitterhouse Records.
Chantal Acda released her first solo album ‘Let Your Hands Be My Guide’ in 2013, followed by the evenly beautiful ‘The Sparkle In Our Flaws’ in 2015. Past collaborators and musical soul mates include Nils Frahm, Peter Broderick, Heather Woods Broderick, Valgeir Sigurðsson, Gyda Valtysdottir and Adam Wiltzie.
“On this album, I wanted to hear my voice the way that it sounds in my head. Whenever we used effects it’s because we felt that they had a place there, a story to contribute to, not as an unconscious automatic next step. I wanted to hear on this record that I’m not all soft but that I have a raw side to me as well. It’s a side that I call on and question and that I need to learn to accept. I’ve noticed that by being more accepting of myself, I become less judgmental when it comes to other people. We’re only people. And I would very much like for us to see each other like that again. Just see each other, period. This album is my ode to connection, contact and consciousness.” – Chantal Acda
