A captivating voice, haunting imagery, and vivid narratives: against a rich panorama of Americana music, singer-songwriter Lauren Pratt introduces her new full-length release, Young American Sycamore. From propulsive bluegrass rhythms to ghostly gothic textures, Young American Sycamore illustrates a wide sonic spectrum of literate songcraft. “I am drawn to the songwriting of Johnny Cash and Patty Griffin; the characters in their songs are deeply flawed but something in them longs to be redeemed.”
With influences ranging from Tori Amos to Emmylou Harris to The Shirelles, Kara McKee and Rosemere Road bring an edgy depth to their traditional folk sound.
Sarah Fard of Savoir Faire has been described as a sort of rock- and 60s-lounge-inflected jazz that positively brims with energy and a sort of underlying sense of whimsy. “There’s a brightness to the album, but also an intelligence: Songs such as Education, Memento and especially the title track poke at the very idea of what it means to be really alive, and the result is captivating.”
