Descriptions, Reviews, &c.

" "Dandelions On Fire", an unexpected and surprising collaboration born from the remarkable talents of the awesome guitar player Simone Massaron (a great musician at ease with different genres), who wrote the music to the songs and arranged almost everything, and Carla Bozulich, renowned cult artist , who is an amazing lyricist and singer. Blues, ballads, folk music, improvised moments...all to create a compelling collection of songs and haunting melodies. The band supporting Simone and Carla is a special one too: Zeno De Rossi on drums is one of the most gifted players emerging out of the new jazz and improvised music scene in Italy. Andrea Viti and Xabier Iriondo have a glorious past as their background with the famous and acclaimed band Afterhours and now move between classic rock and experimental music independently. Other great musicians also took part to the recording session."-Long Song Records


Artist Biographies

"Carla Ragin Bozulich (born December 24, 1965) is an American musician based in Los Angeles, known as the lead singer, lyricist and founder of The Geraldine Fibbers and Evangelista as well as a founding member of Ethyl Meatplow and Scarnella. The Geraldine Fibbers recorded two albums for Virgin Records. Their first album (Lost Somewhere Between The Earth And My Home) was described as "...a Country Feedback Masterpiece" by Vice (magazine)

Bozulich's Evangelista project began in 2006. The album was under her own name and titled Evangelista. The album was released by Montreal, Quebec-based Constellation Records and was that label's first release by a non-Canadian artist. In 2007, The Sunday Times called Evangelista "...a vivid inner darkness which shames rock's weeping millionaires." On the albums Hello, Voyager (2008), Prince of Truth (2009) and In Animal Tongue (2011), Bozulich adopted Evangelista as a project name. Some consistent members include bassist Tara Barnes, keyboardist/sampler Dominic Cramp, guitarist Nels Cline, violinist Jessica Moss, organist Nadia Moss, drummer Ches Smith, multi-instrumentalist and co-producer Shahzad Ismaily. Various members of Godspeed! You Black Emperor contributed to arranging, recording and additional collaborative songwriting. The line-up of Evangelista changes each time they play or record. The Hello, Voyager album features 14 musicians over various pieces.

In 2014, Constellation released Boy, under Bozulich's name, as solo artist. Her most recent album with Constellation, Quieter was released in May 2018 and is a compilation of previously unreleased recordings. Bozulich has also been involved in other projects, including collaborations with Francesco Guerri, Noveller/Sarah Lipstate and Devin Sarno."
