"She is fabulous...a little Kate Bush meets Pink Floyd!!"
"One artist of the night just blew me away. She goes by the name of Silverqueen. She took to the stage with microphone in hand and opened her set singing over some layered vocals that were coming through some top secret pedal. Her voice was mesmerizing. Sweet and haunting all at the same time."
“People need to know about the powerful Silverqueen sound”
“Singer Stuns With Voice, Unique Sound "Music is such a powerful vessel for communication and expression," Huntington-based musician Anna Tsangaris Johnson said. "I hear music in my sleep and I just feel this constant need to create." Johnson, who professionally goes by the name Silverqueen, said that her passion for music has been alive all her life. A musician, singer and songwriter, she has taken it to the next level with her new, independently-released album, "Uprising." The 33-year-old said her life revolves around music, from her performances to her career as a music therapist. The singer is proud of creating her self-produced album, and said it provided her first opportunity to step into the professional music world and understand how much work is needed to create and album. It took a year to complete it. The musician approaches her music with what some may consider a nontraditional point of view. A guitarist and pianist, she said, “I am self-taught so I question if I real”
“Club's regular Sunday night artist offers soaring original melodies, compelling effects. The self-taught multi-instrumentalist, armed with an acoustic guitar and several effects pedals, played at the Velvet Lounge in East Setauket on Sunday night, where her performances are finding appreciative audiences at regular gigs the last Sunday each month. Crystalline acoustic guitar chords and quietly commanding mezzo-soprano vocals filled the venue during Sunday's set, along with a handful of covers, including "Creep" by Radiohead, "Wing" by Patty Smyth, and a wonderfully ethereal treatment of "Amazing Grace," peppering a repertoire of largely original material....Soaring melodies and insistent strums both were bathed in limpid echoes and languid swirls, and those sonic filigrees themselves were often manipulated mid-song to compelling effect.”
