Toronto – September 27, 2010
After stepping out of the musical spotlight for 5 years, award winning artist, Liberty Silver is back stronger than ever before. With a new album releasing on November 20th, 2010 called Groove Symphony and a jewellery line out, Liberty Silver is ready to take the Canadian entertainment scene once again in full force.
Groove Symphony will showcase Liberty Silver’s new sound and take listeners through a symphony of emotions and spirituality. After writing and co-producing the songs on the album, Liberty Silver’s music is best described as a marriage of the best of old and new school rhythm and blues, with some jazzy soul and power ballads.
No stranger to the music scene, the Canadian-born diva got her start by appearing on the television show Star Search, where she won for 7 consecutive weeks. From there, Liberty Silver took the Canadian music scene by storm in the mid 1980s, when she received 3 coveted Juno Awards for Best R&B Single and Best Reggae/Calypso Recording. That same year she was nominated for Most Promising Female Vocalist and collaborated on a jazz album nominated for a Juno Award, making history as the only multiple Juno Award Winner and nominee besides fellow Canadian musician, Bryan Adams.
Other awards Liberty has been credited with include 5 Black Music Awards, 3 Rock Express Awards, the Shuremic Award for Vocals, the Bob Marley Memorial Award, the Chin International Songwriting Award, 3 Genie Nominations for Acting, Top Female Jazz Singer Award, and most recently the 2005 African Achievement Award for Arts and Entertainment. She was also nominated for the Best Female Vocal and Original Composition Award at the Canadian Smooth Jazz Awards, honouring George Benson.
In 1985, Liberty Silvery was part of “Tears Are Not Enough”, a charity single recorded by a number of Canadian artists, under the name Northern Lights. The goal of the single was to raise funds for relief of the 1984–1985 famine in Ethiopia. Liberty Silver collaborated alongside some of Canada’s most celebrated artists for the single, which include Gordon Lightfoot, Anne Murray, Joni Mitchell, Bryan Adams and Neil Young.
Liberty Silver has sold millions of records/cds throughout the world, with all types of music from R &B, jazz, multi-platinum dance tracks, reggae, pop, country music, and gospel. Liberty has performed all across Canada and the world. Her archives includes some of music’s most celebrated festivals, which comprises of the Antigua Jazz Festival, the Ottawa Jazz Festival, the Jamaican Air Canada Jazz Festival, the Barbados Jazz Festival and many more.
Liberty has also opened for some of our time’s most prominent and influential figures, including United States President Barack Obama, Bob Marley, Maya Angelou, Desmon Tutu, Celine Dion, The Temptations, Oscar Peterson, Natalie Cole, Gladys Knight and Russian President Mikhail Gorbachev, just to name a few.
Furthermore, Liberty Silver has also been credited in several TV appearances, including co-hosting the World Basketball Championship ceremony with TV Star Allan Thicke, hosting her own TV series Centre Stage Chronicles, and co-writing and performing the official Olympics theme for the 1996 Atlanta, Georgia, and 2004 Athens, Greece Olympic games. On October 5th, 2010 at 2:00 PM, Liberty will be hosting Swap Shop, a televised garage sale which will air on Mississauga’s Rogers TV.
Liberty Silver has recently added jewellery designer to her list of talents as well. Liberty will be launching a unique line in collaboration with international artists Sweet Lorraine. Each piece is hand-crafted in Australia using high-quality, semi-precious stones and sterling silver fittings and chains. The inspiration behind the jewellery line and its design comes from Liberty’s music and her love of nature.
