Revenge-pop? The Prog Karen Carpenter? Barbra Streisand on acid? Bat For Lashes on an obscure book-binge? Whichever way you choose to describe 'Confessions Of A Romance Novelist' - the debut album by The Anchoress (co-produced by Mansun's visionary frontman Paul Draper) - one thing's for certain, this is something truly different. Multi-instrumentalist, songwriter, PhD and producer Catherine Anne Davies (aka The Anchoress) sums up her album's overall concept as, "Deconstructing normative ideas of love and romance. With each song sung by a different character, it's what you might call a musical ghost writing of sorts." Co-producer and collaborator Draper has helped Davies capture a collection of songs on which she has played a variety of instruments, including piano, guitar, flute, omnichord, mellotron, wurlitzer, glockenspiel, and celeste (as well as multi-tracking up to 25 vocal harmonies on some songs). The creation 'Confessions Of A Romance Novelist' was not without its setbacks and was interrupted by a series of events that threatened to derail the project completely.
