Almeida bathes in the light of eclecticism, drawing you into her enchanting, uplifting and at times devilishly dark world. Classic songwriting with a wondrous mix of murder lullabies, blues-folk beauty, New Orleans soul, voodoo-tinged-pop and a healthy does of Tim Burton-style brooding.
This songbird has collaborated with the likes of Youth, Mr Scruff and The Guy Barker Orchestra as well as writing and recording music for the films Patagonia and Albatross, both of which will be released this year.
“…she's an artist who has to be seen live to be appreciated…it's on stage, with her band in full bawdy flow that she flourishes.” – The Guardia
"...a gorgeous collection of brilliantly written and performed songs...add to that a voice that is by turns delicate and storming, personality that seeps out of every seam and you have an artist and an album to treasure. Delicious."
The Daily Express
"Singing live, she is mesmerizing, a powerhouse! Free spirited and alive, at times she is an enigmatic chanteuse, and other times she is a ringleader to a raucous vaudeville troupe", Amelia Magazine
