“The likes of Crooked Still or Nickel Creek…wreaks of authenticity, delivered with due deference, a bourbon-soaked liturgy of distress.” — FATEA Magazine (UK)
Cera Impala creates songs that are instantly familiar.
Fuelled by pure and poetic storytelling, Impala has paved a path from Arizona through Oregon and Washington, California, New York, Berlin and now Edinburgh in steadfast pursuit of dreams. With her latest album, aptly titled “Wildest Dreams”, she reflects on such a life. Her world is one of playfulness, exploration and natural emotion. Ethereal themes are bedded in authentic American roots and serious musicianship. A multi-instrumentalist, she plays banjo, guitar, piano and uke with an added glimmer of synth to bridge genres in a sumptuous union of sounds. The result is perfectly moreish.
Long-time fans will be more than satisfied with the new sounds emerging from this seasoned artist. Impala creates an intimate conversation with the listener, one that enjoys immense harmonic depth and groove, inviting you to linger and enjoy a sense of connection to life, the universe and the mighty infinite.
