Editors’ Notes

Trixie Whitley, daughter of the late Texas bluesman Chris Whitley, sings with a soulful conviction that rarely comes from a musician only 25 years old. "Breathe You in My Dreams"—the album's first single and a track that appeared in a skeletal version on her excellent Live at Rockwood Music Hall EP—takes off into the atmosphere, fighting sorrow's gravity the entire way. Whitley sang for producer Daniel Lanois' supergroup Black Dub while also releasing EPs that were dry runs for this fully charged, daring, emotionally wrought debut album. "Irene" deals in tortured tonalities and abrasive percussion, taking the music to frighteningly openhearted places. "Never Enough" reigns in just enough to catch the voodoo-blues of her family name. There's an internal logic to these songs. Words chase melodies that fly as free as hawks swooning to their prey. "Silent Rebel, Pt. 2" captures the sound of the desert. "Morelia" nails lonesome with its stark stand-up bass and piano and voice–based verses. "Hotel No Name" centers on a howl of guitars and feedback worthy of Neil Young and Crazy Horse. A chilling accomplishment.

Customer Reviews

Much improved . . .

Trixie whitley has become a much much better singer. Her previous work with Black Dub was insufferably generic and predictable -- her voice sounds good on the surface but she has a limited range and the repetition wears itself out very quickly. However, she has considerably reigned in her overtly-souly breathing and trite inflections, showing greater control with sustained notes that help distinguish her voice from seemingly enless line of soul pyrotechnic singers who are oddly souless. She is no longer overselling her voice, packing soul-mellodrama into every phrase. Being rather young she has yet to truly find herself as an artist, but this album shows considerable growth. The music is both forward thinking and some of it is well crafted, but it is also madningly homogeneous. The album as a whole has really only one mood and one feel and there are very few colors. But with a strong set of distinguished songs and a bit more mileage on her voice she may become a genuinely great artist.

Fourth Corner is your stepping stone

Your father would be so proud. The grove, voice and music is perfect. K.W.

The legacy continues.

Really nice work. Love hearing the influences of Chris but equally impressed with your individuality.
