Art And Music, A Natural Pair


Art and music, a natural pair. Both are interpretive and expressive so it is natural for the two to come together in our package designs. Album art is an important part of any release as it is often the first contact the listener will have with the album. Much like increased curb appeal draws people into your home, the cover art must both compel the viewer to engage it, as well as accurately depict the music inside.

PARMA has recently made connections with some really talented fine artists. This effort has a dual purpose: unique artwork will create a strong, iconic visual impact for the album, and it also helps to bring these artists' work to a new audiences. Support of artists of any type is central to our core philosophy at PARMA.

One such artist we have partnered with is Clara Lieu.  Clara is a professor, writer, and visual artist, whose work explores themes of isolation and mental illness with an interdisciplinary approach which includes drawing, printmaking, and sculpture. We are really pleased to work with her.

Lieu's work has been featured on ALLUSIONS, a recent Navona Records release.
