The process of making Fabiano Palladino’s debut album has been an extensive one. 13 years has passed since she released her first single and it’s been 7 years since she signed to the prestigious label Paul Institute. The reason is that Palladino, much like collaborator Jai Paul, is a perfectionist. And perfect is an accurate way to describe her loudly praised self-titled debut album. A minimalistic, mature mix of mid-80’s productions, Janet Jackson, and classic pop that despite its nod’s to music history sounds spectacularly modern. Fabiana Palladino, who happens to be the daughter of legendary bass player Pino Palladino, sings with striking intimacy and understated assertiveness on what many consider a contender for album of the year.
