The Rye Room Sessions - Anna Tivel "Illinois" LIVE
Anna Tivel’s fourth studio album ‘Small Believer’ is a collection of patchwork stories drawn from conversations with strangers, on the road, in restaurants, bars, and rest stops. Produced by guitar mastermind Austin Nevins (Josh Ritter, Anais Mitchell), the songs float on a raft of electric guitar, pump organ, and sparse bass and drums. ‘Small Believer’ is spacious and honest, a lyric-driven exploration of the things that move within us. Tivel takes great care with every syllable and every story, chipping away until what remains is blindingly true and deeply affecting. The album comes out September 29th on Fluff & Gravy Records.
Anna Tivel's wide-eyed celestial folk songs belong in a similar ballpark with Anais Mitchell, Gregory Alan Isakov and Laura Veirs, where gentle picking plucks among occasionally unconventional sounds and a gorgeous voice tells stories of life in a world of natural wonders. The resulting music is incredibly honest, lyric-driven, and deeply affecting.
Capable of inducing tears with its harsh truths, Bible Belt, the debut album from Oklahoma singer/songwriter Kalyn Fay, will steal your heart.
There are no shades of gray on Bible Belt, just sanguine tales backed by sweeping pedal steel and strings. From the domestic upheaval of “The Fight” with its “All you held was the rug / And you pulled it out from under me” to the dumbstruck wanderer of “Middlegate Station” who’s treated to Johnny Cash and Patsy Cline, Fay weaves fate and love’s stranglehold throughout the album’s ten songs.
Utterly sublime by any standard, Bible Belt marks the entrance of a powerful and wise voice in Americana music.
