The Talk; A Man for This Season
NYTimes - over 10 years
'Dress down for the stage, dress up for life,'' offers David Sylvian, the musician, composer and vocalist whose pensive approach to art and life has taken him along many counterintuitive paths. A fashion icon who defined the ''beautiful boy'' style of the early 1980's, Sylvian now wants his listeners' attention focused solely on his music, while

Lenny Kravitz stepped out of a limo onto Lafayette Street wearing hip-hugging flared blue jeans, black suede platform boots, a brownish see-through shirt open to the midriff, several rings in his ears (and one through his nose), a big turquoise necklace and a black pin-striped blazer with shoulder-width lapels. And these are his day clothes. People

RECORDINGS VIEW; Once Again, the Retro Realm Of Lenny Kravitz
NYTimes - almost 26 years
Pop music keeps getting smarter and smarter. There are sub-markets, markets of blond 12-year-olds, markets near the border of the mainstream, the mainstream itself. Pop continually mutates, finding just the right look and sound for the eager consumers who use the music as proof of membership. A good example is Lenny Kravitz's "Mama Said"

Review/ Film; A Spiritual Prince in a Back-Lot Musical
NYTimes - over 26 years
This will sound unlikely when said about a man who dances in his new film wearing spike-heeled, glitter-trimmed, hip-high leggings, but Prince is showing off his spiritual side. This will sound even more unlikely: Prince is nearly ready for Broadway. "Graffiti Bridge," the new film Prince has scored, written and directed, is no less feebly plotted

Learn about memorable moments in the evolution of Ingrid Chavez
    FORTIES
  • 2010
    Age 45
    A Flutter and Some Words is Chavez's second album, released on January 25, 2010 on her own label, Ten Window Records.
    More Details Hide Details It consists of Chavez's poetry and lyrics set to the instrumentation of Lorenzo Scopelliti (aka Saffron Wood) and Richard Werbowenko (on the title track) and recorded by Alessandro Mazzitelli.
  • TWENTIES
  • 1992
    Age 27
    May 19, 1992, Chavez's debut solo album, was released in 1991 on Paisley Park Records. (The title is the first anniversary of the date the cover art was photographed).
    More Details Hide Details The album was initially intended to set her spoken-word poetry to music supplied by Prince. It was recorded gradually from late 1987 to mid-1991. When Warner Bros. pushed for the album to have sung vocals in place of the spoken word, Prince abandoned the project. Five of the album's tracks ("Elephant Box", "Slappy Dappy", "Jadestone", "Whispering Dandelions" and "Heaven Must Be Near") ended up as spoken word with atmospheric music by Prince under his Paisley Park alias, and the remainder were relatively poppy tracks with sung vocals, co-produced by Ingrid with Prince's studio hands Michael Koppelman and Levi Seacer, Jr.. The singles "Hippy Blood", "Heaven Must Be Near", and "Elephant Box" were released as singles (along with club remixes).
    She also had two daughters, Ameera and Isobel, with English singer and musician David Sylvian, whom she married in 1992 and divorced twelve years later.

  • 1990
    Age 25
    During the filming Chavez went into the studio with Lenny Kravitz and Andre Betts and co-wrote and recorded what became Madonna's sultry 1990 hit "Justify My Love".
    More Details Hide Details She received a large out-of-court settlement for not being credited on the single's release. In 1992, not long after recording vocals with David Sylvian for the songs "Heartbeat (Tainai Kaiki II)--Returning to the Womb" and "Cloud #9" on Ryuichi Sakamoto's 1991 album Heartbeat, Chavez married Sylvian, and over the years contributed her trademark breathy vocals to a number of her baritone-voiced husband's releases. During the mid-1990s, Chavez worked with Sylvian and Werbowenko on a second solo album titled Little Girls With 99 Lives. Chavez and Sylvian sent out demos to record labels and close friends, yet could not strike up interest in a deal. The album would have included tracks entitled "Lighthouse", "Snowfall", "Whose Trip Is This?", "Starred And Dreaming", "Kall/Les Fleurs Du Mal", and "Remembering Julia"—the latter four of which can be found as b-sides on the 2-CD UK single of David Sylvian's "I Surrender". Little Girl with 99 Lives Ep is scheduled for digital release in 2016 through Ingrid's Ten Windows records.
    It was at this time that Chavez was asked to play the part of Prince's romantic interest in his 1990 film Graffiti Bridge.

    In 1989, Chavez formed a band called Skyfish with Richard Werbowenko.
    More Details Hide Details They created a six-song album released only on cassette. Chavez ran into Prince a year or so later and handed him a copy of the Skyfish demo. Shortly after the exchange, Prince contacted Chavez and wanted her to listen to a track that he had just finished with the poem "Heaven Must Be Near". Prince asked Chavez to finish the poetry album.
  • 1988
    Age 23
    She was known as The Spirit Child on his 1988 Lovesexy album.
    More Details Hide Details Prince encouraged Chavez to write 21 poems with the promise that they would make a poetry album together. When she finished her poems, she and Prince went into the studio. Prince sat at a keyboard and played while Chavez read through all 21 of her poems. This was the original recording that would later become her only album ever released on the Paisley Park label. Shortly after this session the project was put on hold indefinitely.
