Tenderness, humour and tunefulness” characterize the music of Silvervest, the Montreal-based duo of vocalist Kim Zombik and bass player-composer Nicolas Caloia. Zombik sings from the heart and is a great storyteller. Imagine what might have happened had Sun Ra been Joni Mitchell’s piano player. Imagine if Laurie Anderson wrote songs for Billie Holiday, or if Derek Smalls and Abbey Lincoln had a duo project. That potent and eclectic poise is what Silvervest offers. The band’s name pays homage to…a clothing item beloved of the indefatigable and endlessly creative drumming legend Elvin Jones.Kim Zombik (voc), Nicolas Caloia (db)
