Petra Haden's solo debut takes you to a land filled wth cartwheels, tingly mint tea and razzle-dazzle rasberry twigs. It does things to people..
Petra Haden made a career performing alongside everyone from Beck to Bette
Midler, Green Day to Victoria Williams. She had been a member of alternative
pioneers That Dog and The Rentals. On her solo debut, Imaginaryland, originally
released in 1999, she introduced a new phase of her career utilizing her
extraordinary ability to vocalize the sounds of the instruments she hears.
She overdubs wordless a cappella adventures into pop soundscapes creating
original compositions as well as covers of Enya and Miranda Sex Garden. Hers is
a unique vision and a unique voice that takes you to a land filled with
cartwheels, tingly mint tea and razzle-dazzle raspberry twigs.
Petra Haden was born on October 11, 1971 in Manhattan. From the beginning, she
was surrounded by a wide variety of musical stimulation. Her father is the
legendary jazz bassist Charlie Haden, and as one of triplets Petra grew up
constantly singing with her sisters Rachel and Tanya. Petra soon developed an
extraordinary ability to vocalize the sounds of the instruments she heard in the
jazz and classical music that was now a steady part of her musical appetite.
"The surprise is that Haden's solo album is mainly a cappella, overdubbing several wordless lines into sweet pop constructions." - Allmusic
