Release of the sophomore album
UK/USA (July 7, 2022) – Award-winning musician and author Tiki Black released her acclaimed sophomore album early this year, which is entitled “The Sound Of The Broken Wand.” The record has received critical praise alluding to its timelessness, authenticity and quality. Entropy Mag (USA) underscores its “spellbinding beauty” and “grace.” Liverpool Sound and Vision (UK) calls it “influential,” “charming,” “uplifting,” and “outrageously cool.” Fatea magazine (UK) speaks of a “phenomenal album, full of soulful and haunting melodies that will capture your heart.”
Release of the accompanying poetry book
Her audience gets even more of the concept album as the artist releases a complementing collection of poems and one essay. The book of the same name (with the subtitle “The Poems”) is available on Amazon UK and Amazon USA in paperback and Kindle editions. A limited-edition hardback book including CD can be purchased on Bandcamp. Further encouraging emancipation, the poems explore the underlying themes in folk tales that accompanied our growth or may have accidentally hindered it.
A sophomore album that took its time
This sophomore album follows a critically successful debut album, Out Of The Black. That concept album was deemed a “masterpiece” (YourMusicNews, Canada), and praised for its “impressive music” (FabOn, Japan), “warm, embracing and timeless” sound (Spiral Earth, U.K.), and “gorgeous… truly memorable” songs (The Akademia, USA). It confirms as does her acceptance speech this year, that the songstress insists on putting the time and meraki needed on every one of her musical creations to inspire and empower. The musical energy is encouraging and emancipating. Quality is paramount, and thus shines, unencumbered from the pressures and restrictions of time and trends.
Tiki Black is present on all major social media platforms. Her music is available via all major retailers and streaming services. The musician is currently promoting both her album and book widely. Audiences can find show dates and more information on her website at https://tikiblack.com.
