Helena Davidsson's sophomore album, "Aldrig lika konstig och ensam igen", presents an empathetic encounter between Swedish singer songwriter tradition and improvisational jazz. Helena's songs portray the wing strokes of bats and swallows, the rolling of the seas, and the deep longing to be set free.
Departing from Swedish singer songwriter tradition, and developing and deepening the music through the musicians individual expressions, the album communicates a strong sense of presence. “Helena initiated every session by reading the lyrics out loud. We all took our personal experience of the words with us into our performance”, says Henrik Cederblom who produced, mixed and performs on the album.
Helena's lyrics envision nature embracing the whole universe, the sound of a bumblebee falling asleep, a golden glistening sun shower.
All music is written by singer and composer Sofia Pettersson, except for the track "Svala fladdermus", composed by multi musician Olle Linder.
Helena, singer and lyricist, has previously released the album "men det finns kor", also recorded and produced by Henrik Cederblom at Studio Epidemin.
