The highly-anticipated DEBUT album, "WHEN I DON'T SLEEP.." by Sinem Saniye ("See-nem" "Sahh-nee-yeh") may be more than what you can handle. Then again, it may just be what you've been looking for. It's what can happen to one person when they are more than just tossing and turning in the night!
"When I Don't Sleep" is a mixture of heartfelt songs as honest as a diary about a troubled youth, vulnerability, the search for identity, celebrating the mystery of the afterlife, finding love the most unlikely places, discovering a second sexual coming of age, restlessness and fear, and all the thoughts that may race through any person's mind when they are up at night, unable to sleep, and searching for answers...
With this kind of captivating subject matter, it's no surprise Sinem's voice comes through with such raw honesty, smooth, strong, and soaring at times, shy, gritty, and vulnerable at others. The songs on the album are deliciously wrapped up in Pop Americana with Bossa Nova, Jazz, and Middle-Eastern flavors, combining Sinem's love of Pop beats and song structure with World music influences.
"When I Don't Sleep.." is an album that is sure to stay in your collection forever, never aging over time, but staying young in its childlike and innocent nature, always restless, never weary, and brewing with a secret sensuality that is begging to be released.
