ArtemesiaBlack's music is a seductive blend of Americana gothic, voix de ville, singer songwriter, jazz, folk & chamber music. Multi-instrumentation, buttery vocal harmonies, some rather wicked widdlywhooing, very romantic notions, and haunted story telling. Sincere, quirky, funny and as diverse as the ghostly characters we catch in our musical web - who doesn't like a good ghost story.

CURRENTLY WORKING ON A NEW CD
We are thinking the next CD might come with a little coffee table book... of... you bet, ghost stories with photographs by Kenny Schick and stories by well the characters. If we get really creative perhaps even a little dvd of little videos of the stories... wouldn't that be nice... now if we can but find time to make this happen my world would be a better place. I already have a number of new songs / characters I'm working on - this is my favorite part, letting my imagination run wild.
ALLWAYS LOOKING FOR COOL VENUES / ESPECIALLY THEATRES
We are always look for cool venues where we can put on our theatre type shows - we prefer these venues because our stuff is more theatrical than just singer songwriter. But we've played everywhere and we are so adaptable... so contact us if you want us to come to your town... we like playing in living rooms too... and we clean up our ghosts and take them with us when we leave :)
OYSTERS - FEATURED IN ANTERO ALLI'S FILM FLAMINGOES
Our song (or should I say Irma Fox's song) OYSTERS is privileged to be inlcuded in the sound track of Antero Alli's film FLAMINGOS. This wonderfully inspiring and thought provoking film is having huge success and very nice reviews in the media. http://www.verticalpool.com/flamingo.html A very cool review by wonderful writer Gary Singh http://www.metroactive.com/features/columns/antero-alli-flamingos-silicon-alleys_20120307.html We played a few songs at the San Jose premiere at the Anno Domini gallery after the showing of the film. We felt so privileged and honored to be included not only on the night but in the film.
QUOTES - nice things people say about us
"... we absolutely heard a very similar spirit! .. we like VERY much what we heard! ... personal / unique music that does not long for certain *cliches / sounds / scenes* .. but a direct output from the heart ... a detail ... your voice ... has much of *classical* lady singers .. but does not remind on someone .. too many singers today add certain effects to the singing to *fake* feeling ... your voice / music creates a *world* .. a real feeling... pictures ... !!! ... real .. what I call *music*! - Lord Litter (German DJ - kwtf.net, RadioMarabu.de, DuckDuckGo.com, OpenStreetMap.org, and with Meta Georgia - duo with Hilke Hesse)
"10/10 ! There is not a bad song on ArtemesiaBlack. ...one of the best albums I've heard this year. Everything about it is perfect from the beautifully crafted songs to the haunting performances.
