"The new album benefits from our confidence, from our mutual respect and appreciation of each other as musicians and performers," Shirley feels. “I’m not going to get this sound from any other band in Europe”.
In April 2018 Shirley is back and stronger than ever and alongside The Silverbacks they release their second album “Wishes & Wants”. First record to be captured at Tucxone Records's new facilities, it consolidates a rather unique style of a talented and ever growing artist.
This is a very personal album in which the sounds/melodies and rhythms that were present in “Black Rose” have been taken a step further and in a more conscious way, nourishing the whole process, from songwriting to recording, to get a perfect blend that has made the project grow more solid in that unique and characteristic essence of its own.
Just after coming off the tour for their award-winning first album, Black Rose, Shirley Davis and the Silverbacks set to work on their second, Wishes and Wants. With three core writers working together -Marc Ibarz, Shirley, and Eduardo Martínez (musical director and guitarist)- ten original tracks were created. The intricate arrangements, reflecting a wide range of influences, were refined during rehearsal sessions with the entire group.
The lyrics display Shirley's own universe, like “Woman Dignity”, but also her present moment in life like “Troubles & Trials”. We can also find those that are expressing her point of view of the world like “Wishes & Wants”.
"Edu's arrangements offer a beautiful backbone for light and shade, as soul-inspired music should", says Shirley. "They're easy for singers to sink their teeth into. It's easy to jump into those rhythms and create music showcasing our talents and what we've learned from working together in live performances."
This year is Shirley's 20th singing anniversary and it will be the year Europe will see her touring to become the Soul Diva she was predicted she would become by her singing-mentor-mother Sharon Jones
We are introducing to you the new project from the Tucxone family. Soul and a taste of Afro that will make the delights of the most demanding gourmets of the black genres connaisseur.
