iTunes Review

Joan Shelley is based in Kentucky, but the songs on her third album are as indebted to Fairport Convention as Appalachian folk. She has a clear, pure voice that rings out over the intricate fingerpicked spiderwebs and deep, limpid chords on Over and Even. The spell she casts is enhanced by the collaboration of Nathan Salsburg, whose mesmerizing guitar work adds heart to “Ariadne’s Gone,” and by the harmonies of Will Oldham, whose woodsy hum buoys the skipping-stone melody of “Stay on My Shore.”

What a voice!

She reminds me of Eva Cassidy, Joni Mitchell, and Kate Wolf. Her voice is clear and full of emotion! She had me with the first note!

Brilliant. Her voice is matchlessly pure. She reminds me of a young Joni Mitchell but less affected and Sinead O'connor tackling a ballad. There is no artifice or pretence or ego here, only a bared heart on a winged sleeve. If that weren't enough, the lyrics are naive but not trite, so you at never aware of a heavy handed message. Truly a gift.

Album is awesome! Great end of summer release. Feels like perfect timing.
