Chicago-born Suzanne Palmer began performing at age 16, then signed to MCA/Twisted Records and worked with Grammy-winning producer Peter Rauhofer on Stylewith “Much Better”, “Alright” and “Muscles”.

Faded away begins with the “Funky Strut Mix”, opening on an infectious rhythm topped with undulating textures. When Palmer’s sultry voice enters, the melody takes on captivating, undulating overtones.

“Tell me, tell me / what you gonna do now / now that I’m gone / gone / tell me, tell me / who you gonna weigh / now that I’m / gone gone.”

The “Radio Edit” picks up the pace, adding shimmering, kaleidoscopic toplines as Palmer’s sumptuous, enticing vocals infuse the lyrics with dazzling texture. Jazz fusion flavored keyboards give the harmonics a soft, bubbly coloring.

With its bubbly and percussive intro, “Dub Strut Mix” extends the bassline, adding a muscular rhythmic pulse. Boiling with dynamism, the harmonics grow and sway with an unbridled and latent exhibitionism.

The “Ralphi Rosario Dub” speeds up the rhythmic beat and expands the percussive accents, infusing the melody Accommodation Powerful. Less seductive than on previous tracks, Palmer’s vocals saturate the lyrics with dreamlike surfaces.

Dripping with flair, on Faded awayThe Shamanic distills swashbuckling house music, crowned by the voluptuous voice of Suzanne Palmer.
