Exclusive Interview with Volary: "Will over Tragedy"

Let’s enter the world of Volary. Volary is an amazing Australian born singer/songwriter that currently resides in San Francisco, CA.

The definition of Volary has a double meaning. It is not only a cage for birds, but for Volary, it is a symbol that represents a freedom from those bonds that tried to bring her down throughout her life.

While Volary remains very private about the details of her past, her story is translated in the form of art in the lyrics itself.

What isn’t private is her battle against breast cancer. Just before she entered the studio to start recording her debut album in 2009, she was diagnosed with this terrible disease. Instead of giving up her music, Volary fought the cancer and resumed her career and produced an incredible album. For someone that has gone through so much adversity, Volary’s music is both inspiring and enlightening.

Volary’s brand new album, “Out of Shadows” is a vast in-depth creation of art that does not concentrate on the dark side of the human condition, but its beauty. The album is filled with the rhythms of the guitar, the viola, cello, and a few brass instruments like the clarinet, horns, sax and oboe. With the combination of the drums and Volary’s rich vocals makes this one of the most entertaining pop independent albums of the year.

To learn more of Volary’s struggle and sample the best music from “Out of Shadows”, listen to her incredible story in this weeks 100th episode of The Great Unknowns Presents.
