We're excited to announce the new instrumental collaboration album from Pieta Brown, out now! SYLVEE & THE SEA’s first release The Less I Needed The Better I Felt is a vivid collection of experimental instrumentals by Pieta Brown in collaboration with John Convertino (Calexico), CARM (CARM, Bon Iver, Y Music) and Don Was (producer, musician, president of Blue Note Records).
Started spontaneously from a distance during the isolation of pandemic times through a rapid-fire ping-pong session between Pieta Brown and John Convertino, the free-form-in-the-moment melody and tone explorations quickly became coherent instrumentals through the exchange. The result is a highly emotive and playful piece reflecting both the fragmentation and openness of the times. Brown's new collaborative project SYLVEE & THE SEA is her first fully instrumental release.
