Amber Coffman - City Of No Reply [2LP] Vinyl Record
Full-time guitarist/singer for the Dirty Projectors since 2006, Amber Coffman wrote and recorded her debut solo album City Of No Reply in Los Angeles, having moved there from Brooklyn in 2013. Lead track "All To Myself" is the perfect introduction to the album, highlighting Coffman's lulling vocal delivery that transports the listener, with the winsome artist gracefully in command of every note.
About "All To Myself," she comments: "For anyone who's ever found themselves uncomfortably restless, sad and alone, or even temporarily doubting themselves and their dreams, this is a mantra, a pep talk, a love song to yourself. It's a song you can slow dance by yourself to without feeling funny if there's no one else there. A small reminder not to spend too much time fretting and just to get out there, live your life and do what makes you happy."
Blessed with an effortless style and formidable artistic presence able to impact multiple genres and song structures, Coffman has quietly become one of the most intriguing and sought-after vocalists the past few years, delivering notable performances with Bjork and David Byrne on separate Dirty Projectors collaborations (Mount Wittenberg Orca and "Knotty Pine," respectively), with a host of cutting-edge artists from the EDM, hip hop and indie worlds enlisting Coffman's rare talents for their own projects.
Artists she has collaborated with include Major Lazer, Rusko, J.Cole, Snoop Dogg, T.I., and Velvet Underground impresario John Cale, with Coffman lending her exquisite harmonies to his classic "Close Watch" in 2015. Most recently she appeared on Frank Ocean's long awaited album Blonde.
