The lovability of Maribou State
The accessability of Bondax
The downright coolness of Massive Attack
VONAVI’s debut album feels like a breath of fresh air, while simultaneously leaving you breathless. This represents a sense of balance that is evident the more you look:
He takes you on a journey that is cinematic yet approachable, with a style that is fresh yet mature, relaxed yet powerful, stripped down yet melodic, reassuringly warm yet undeniably cool.
He is young, yet experienced, an artist but also a producer, a musician who gets up at 6:00 am every morning, a pirate who remains sweetly humble: He confesses, “I’ve never owned a record.” while having the good sense to advise anyone to “stay humble, so you can learn new things”
These juxtapositions reveal a great depth to VONAVI and the beautifully produced and arranged vocal tracks on this album are testament to his technical skills as much as they are to his people skills as a collaborator. As such, Andrei has worked with Run Rivers, Lorna Rose and Jack Hawitt.
