Burnside Album Details
Anonymous Choir, Sings Stax
Nona Invie is a Minneapolis-based musician whose primary outlet is with Dark, Dark, Dark. But since 2010, she has led an everchanging lineup of a 10-15 member women’s choir and recorded several albums reimagining the work of other artists. As City Pages writes, “Anonymous Choir…don't so much cover songs as wholly reinvent them. The instrumentation is stripped down — usually a minimalist piano arrangement — and built back up with Invie's wounded tenor leading the charge, and layered vocal harmonies behind her.’ To date they have released albums of the late Leonard Cohen’s songs, re-envisioned Neil Youngs’s After The Gold Rush classic and a collection of soul songs from Memphis’ Stax label.
