This resulted in their first CD ‘Change’. Subsequently they have been writing lots of music together, and a second CD is scheduled for August just 11 months after formation. This CD will contain some more ‘plugged-in’- sounding tracks as well as some still in the acoustic vein. More Detailed Backgrounds Carola Baer Carola Baer grew up in West London and moved to the US in her early 20’s. She settled in San Francisco where she met Ian Butler, who helped and inspired her to begin composing her own piano based material.
She then spent 4 years collaborating with Mike Freeman creating politically based industrial sounds and multimedia performances. Carola has extensively experimented with vocal free form improvisation in order to find what she believes the true or pure melody of a piece of music. In the vein of Cocteau Twins and Dead Can Dance, she explored and produced a number of musical expressions using ethnic melodies, wordless vocalisations and spoken sounds. In the late 90’s Carola finally formed her own band called Flowers for Delia with bassist Steve Brown and guitarist Tim Foley, and began playing live in a variety of small venues around San Francisco.
After relocating to Seattle in 2007, Carola partnered up with David Rispoli and produced a full CD. Their collaborative project was cut short when she finally returned to the UK after a 20 year absence. Carola has now started working with local musician and producer David Lambert. The music is a collection of delicate and emotionally charged poetic imagery inspired by Carola’s humanitarian and environmental concerns.
As the grand daughter of Rupen Metrobian, sole survivor of his family after the 1915 Armenian genocide, she speaks out against all forms of injustice whenever she can through her music. David J Lambert Brought up in Dagenham (East London), Dave got his first finger-slicing guitar aged 11. In his teens, he began a life-long interest in recording, by using an old reel-to-reel tape recorder and a casette recorder to make sound-on-sound recordings, and later borrowing (from designer Peter Kershaw) a very early Drum Machine. He also dabbled with jam bands in his teens, and Steely Dan covers at Leeds University. More recently he was often seen playing in local folk clubs (especially The Anchor, in Byfleet, Surrey), and was heavily involved in a Blues collective at Bracknell’s South Hill Park Arts Centre, where he annoyed a lot of people by trying to get them to play folk and rock too.
In 2009, he became guitarist in the early incarnation of pagan-folk-rock band Spriggan Mist (with Baz and Maxine Cilia, Andy Wilkin, and Dave’s wife Gill). He recorded and produced their first album ‘Caught In A Spell’, and wrote 2 songs for the album. Playing with the Sprigs included playing the rather delightful 3 Wishes Faery Festival (3 times – using up his 3 wishes!), playing to 500+ Bhuddists at a rally, and on BBC Radio (at ‘BBC Introducing’). Prior to meeting Carola, he wrote a number of songs in a cynical/protest/Billy Bragg style, and also did some prog-style free-jamming with guitarist Pete Slade and drummer Shaun Finch (of the Bounty Hounds). Our music The name ‘Quiet Wish’ reflects a laid-back, quiet and reflective style, and some of the music is in that vein, suitable for those quieter moments, late evenings and times when you want to relax.
Some of the music will also reflect different moods. Lyrically, some of Carola’s poetic words may seem like they are about relationships, but often those relationships are between mankind and the planet, reflecting her environmental and political views. David’s words tend to be more direct, but also cover subjects such as the futility of war, and political issues. Read more on Last.fm.
