never said goodbye . . .

i’m somewhere i don’t want to be
the city’s moving over me
but i think i’m going to stay
please don’t be alarmed
i’m at the start of something

five years ago, cerys matthews was apart of the brit-pop group canatonia. after experiencing an emotional breakdown and checking herself into rehab, cerys decided to take a musical solo journey of her own. in 2003, after spending some time in the south and gathering support from friends like bob dylan, she released her first solo debut *cockahoop* sharing a darkness that had never been revealed in her music before. this summer, cerys released her 2nd album *never said goodbye*, carefully illustrating herself as if all her words and ideas were written upon scattered and torn journal pages. unlike her prior vulnerable and acoustic debut, cascading drums and deep bass flow providing a complex yearning that clearly shows a new feeling of simplicity.

About The Author


“One glimpse is all it takes to tell you that Music Is Art is something special. You can start by judging this blog by its cover—it’s one of the best-designed, most aesthetically aware music blogs around—but there’s much more to it than just a pretty template. For one, Danielle, the “dreamer/designer” behind MIA, focuses not only on excellent music, but on art, photography and writing and how they all intersect and inform the music. By sharing the sounds and sights that inspire her, she’s inspiring a growing number of readers on a daily basis. By documenting artists’ creative processes, she’s, in the process, creating a pretty substantial, always-evolving work of art herself.” - Nerd Litter
