Nettwerk Records’ newest signing, ARCHIS, is the artistic pairing of singer-songwriter Dia Frampton and film composer, producer and arranger Joseph Trapanese. A unique combination of her autobiographical lyrics and his spacious, cinematic orchestrations, ARCHIS sees Frampton define and achieve her true musical vision. Other artists have performed their albums with the backing of a symphonic orchestra, but few have written songs with the sole intent to merge the rich, textured instrumentation of horns and strings to pop vocals. The initial product of this novel concept, a self-titled, six-song EP was released by Nettwerk Records in February 2015. The final song on the EP, “Let Me Love,” with its New Orleans funeral-style marching band, is Dia’s own plea for artistic freedom, not only creatively and musically, but in her personal life.
