Savannah Pope channels the world’s best rock singers on her soon-to-be-released album Atlantis, due April 25.
A blend of Ann Wilson, Grace Slick and with music reminiscent of Yes, with Atlantis, Pope introduces the listener to a world where basically anything can happen — and it does. Remember, this is the lady who fronted the wild LA band SpaceCream, one of the hardest-working bands playing LA.
But it’s about to get real here as Pope takes her proper place in the spotlight on her own.
You can put Pope’s remarkable voice up against the best in the business. Her range is real and moves from the deepest notes of despair to the highest tones, all with emotion and punch. She’s one of the few power singers out there in the clubs, continually gaining fans.
Today, as they say, it’s not what you know, but who you know. Well some sponsor or financial backer ought to get to know Pope because talent like this comes along only once in a blue moon.
Pope has a quirky crush on outer space and blends it with her love of David Bowie and the results are fun and upbeat. But it’s not difficult to image this star-in-the-making running with the best of the bunch. She’s also great live.
Leave it to Pope to take the listener on a wild ride from mellow to pure, Sunset Strip-style ’80 to throwback ’60s rock and roll. And it all comes together beautifully on Atlantis.
Recorded at the famous Kitten Robot studios under the watchful eye of Paul Roessler, the album covers a lot of ground.
And of course, with all the creativity pouring forth, how can we expect anything less than a compelling and modern video that’s like a rocket to Mars that crash lands back in medieval France.
