Stories of Margo
"Stories of Margo" is the debut album of Margo Nancyfor and the forerunner of the composer, pianist and singer’s upcoming conceptual performance. It consists of ten songs with Greek lyrics created and performed by Margo Nancyfor.
With a distinctive simplicity in its melody and in combination with its poetic lyrics "Stories of Margo" succeeds in deeply arousing senses and emotions. The songs evoke a nostalgic, cinematic at times, feeling while the music carries the flair of French chanson. With the piano present in most of the songs, every melody evolves sensually and in a complete attunement with the lyrics. The arrangements choose the discrete accompaniment of string, wind and percussion instruments enabling gracefully the feeling of intimacy, warmth and inwardness of the music. The artist’s performance is characterized by a refined and subtle dynamism, which absents of any unnecessary extravagance, making each word clear and delivered. The message? Personal. A note to Self written on a score.
