Read Ania's interview with AustralianJazz.net about her many projects and debut solo piano album here.
My Shadow Is My Only Follower is a diverse album of dramatic, elegant and lyrical solo piano compositions (featuring additional electronic elements) that cross between contemporary classical, cinematic and Latin genres. The ten album tracks, predominantly written during time spent away on tours, are a series of musical meditations on the complexities of the world we live in - a world that can be terrifyingly overwhelming and deeply isolating, but also extraordinary and beautiful. The album was recorded on fellow pianist Nat Bartsch's home piano, with additional synthesisers recorded at Ania's home studio, House Of Noodle studios. The album was mixed and mastered by Lachlan Carrick, with artwork by Jolyon James. The digital launch online concert is on YouTube, Facebook and IGTV, and the album is available on Bandcamp.
