Beneath the fierce commotion on the streets of the Big Apple lies an astonishing network of tunnels, turnstiles and technology. Subway boldly descends into this extraordinary labyrinth to find what really makes the wheels of this underground empire turn. A subterranean control tower houses a startling mix of antique technology side-by-side with the ultra-new. Experimental cars, subway disasters, construction miracles, greedy financiers: they're all part of the brute legend of the world's largest subway system. Hop aboard!
After spending time as a backup singer for various Dutch artists, Giovanca set out in 2008 with her own debut, Subway Silence. The Netherlands might not be the first place one looks for fresh takes on modern soul, but Giovanca provides plenty of new sounds. Her vocals on Subway Silence have drawn legitimate comparisons to Corinne Bailey Rae's quiet, carefree attitude, and the more sultry aspects of Erykah Badu or Macy Gray. The arrangements themselves range from choppy upbeat ideas to classic '60s elements, all with an entirely new look at soul that's nostalgic at the same time.
