Thalia Zedek is an artist of immutable stature and unceasing vitality. The legendary
songwriter's fiery voice and frank lyricism give her songs emotional potency and
stark beauty. Zedek is able to distill complex events into simple, clear, and at times
monumentally weighty moments with a singular grace. Through ballads or bluster, Zedek
imbues her music with unguarded honesty. Perfect Vision examines the anxiety and pain
of rising divisions between people both physical and ideological. Zedek transmutes fervor
and resilience into sobering laments, while her lush arrangements wrap the listener in an
often complex emotional message.
Perfect Vision follows the 2018 Fighting Season, created in the midst of growing tensions
across the U.S. On Fighting Season Zedek sought resistance, where on Perfect Vision she
searches for clarity during a time of exponential isolation and doubt. Every challenge and
sadness Zedek forces us to see is met in equal measure by her defiant guitar and dissenting
voice, a torch illuminating a path for the listener to navigate through the darkness.
