South Wales singer-songwriter Volenté is
proud to present her debut album Cold
Clean. Having spent time on the music
scenes in South Africa and Holland, this
talented musician has been an established
part of the Welsh music scene for the past
few years, having performed on MC MABON
and JT Mouse albums, as well as being the
front woman of the acclaimed Maniana project in 2003.
Having been part of so many different projects, Volenté decided it was time to put her own music on record, so she wrote, produced and arranged this album and played most of the instrumentation on it! The haunting vocals, sublime lyrics and beautiful sounds on the album are sure to move the listener. From the mellow How
Beautiful You Are devoted to her son, to her impressive vocal range on Bag of Chips, the album is packed with wonderfully original material.
It’s hard to pigeon-hole Volenté’s music, though comparisons have been made to the likes of Bjork, cult indie favourites the Sundays, Lambchop and Kate Bush. This album presents us with Volenté's thoughts on life, love and loss over twelve haunting tracks all written, produced, arranged and performed by Volenté herself.
All in all, Cold Clean is a great debut album from one of the most promising female artists to emerge in recent years ...

"A unique voice, both haunting and beguiling. One of the most interesting tracks I've heard for a while" Rogue Magazine
“A breath of fresh air for those who want to get past the mainstream electronic R’n'B genre of recent times and listen to something a little bit different” samueljsaunders.co.uk
"Volenté - Quite an otherworldly voice she has bit Kate Bush in places and musically this is pretty unique, fusing classical music drum n bass, snatches of Dub Step and Ambient, closest comparison would be Massive Attack. Fab". ents24
Here's a sneak peak to the album!
Gigs and Festivals - "If you like Kate Bush, classical music, dubstep and beautifully written lyrics then Volente's new single "Broken Promises" is the must-have download. Boasting an exciting new sub-genre of electronic music, which intertwines drum 'n' bass beats with operatic vocals, this captivating singer-songwriter offers a chilling sound that will etch its way into your mind and seep into your subconscious long after you've finished listening"
Rogue Magazine - "A unique voice, both haunting and beguiling. One of the most interesting tracks I've heard for a while"
Festivals for All – “With a quirky sideways look, Volenté offers up a nightmarish feast for the imagination. Electronics and the ethereal vocals combine to create a sound world that is at once contemporary and off-beat.”
Buzz Magazine – “Volenté is a lady of musical layers. On the title track of this EP, a liquid drum’n’bass line underpins soaring orchestral loops and a distinctive, floaty vocal that sets her apart from other outfits in the genre.”
