CloudyaH is the new project of Claudia Heidegger, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist and acclaimed “virtuoso of the quiet tones” (as she was dubbed by Austrian national broadcaster ORF Radio Tirol), pushing her long standing career as a delicately enchanting folk-songstress into a new direction. From a classical background via early Singersongwriter Folk Projects in London and performing as a violinist with Irish folk band Shane Ó Fearghail & the Host, she appears to have found her true self and sound as a songwriter and producer.
Picking up the electric guitar, she electrifies, excites and brings to prove that elaborate indie sounds are just another part of her natural musical range. Produced, mixed and recorded entirely by herself, Slowly Lets Go is her debut single. A softly swaying waltz, shifting from dark into light, a gentle reminder that it is ok to walk at your own pace. This release marks the beginning of her collaboration with Viennese Indie Labels Between Music and ArGe Musik.
Catchy waltz melody and the sparkling vocal gives the listener immediate sense of spring, especially in the chorus where the melody resembles a mountain stream developing into a majestic river. The track is refreshing, CloudyaH's vocal is full of confidence yet pleasant to the ear and the result is ear-catching, feels like an appetizer and you're waiting for the main course, wanting more.
"She's turning the page, with nothing to lose It moves her to tears, it has happened before"
