Vanessa Silberman has spent years in the music industry in a variety of different roles, all with an eye towards honing her craft. In addition to spending years touring the country as a musician, she’s also worked extensively in music production and engineering, as well as artist development.
With an array of diverse experiences under her belt, the next chapter in Silberman’s musical journey takes place in Bushwick, as the singer-songwriter recently relocated to the neighborhood from Los Angeles. To coincide with the coast to coast move, Silberman is releasing her second EP, Brighter In Bloom, on September 20.
The EP contains four songs that were self-produced and recorded by Silberman with additional production and engineering by Mikel Ross at Lucky Recording Company, and Silberman’s own artist development company, A Diamond Heart Production.
Ahead of the EP’s September 20 release, Bushwick Daily is excited to premiere “Out Of The Shadows,” an exclusive bonus track from Brighter In Bloom that you can only get with a pre-sale purchase of the EP on CD or vinyl. It’s a great song to get Brooklyn-ites acquainted with Silberman, as it showcases her unique ability to funnel the grittiness of punk through a pop lens.
Silberman is well-known for her own polished, yet edgy version of grunge-inspired punk, and she certainly maintains her fine-tuned boldness on the catchy “Out Of The Shadows.”
The song radiates both confidence and poise, as Silberman delicately weaves her penchant for distorted guitars and deeply personal, uplifting lyrical themes. The track perfectly captures her raw emotion and thematic focus on transforming negative experiences into positive outcomes with an energetic melody and lyrics that’ll inspire you to dust yourself off and move forward stronger than ever after enduring hardship.
Stream exclusive “Out Of The Shadows” via Soundcloud.
You can pre-order Brighter In Bloom on CD via Vanessa’s website. The EP is available on vinyl via Resurrection Records. Order it on either platform and you’ll get a free download of “Out Of The Shadows.”
Vanessa is celebrating the release of Brighter In Bloom with a special performance at Modern Vice on September 20. She’ll be joined by Sharkmuffin, Cloud Cover, and Kristeen Young.
