About this item

This is a stunningly beautiful record from this Brooklyn octet. Fans of Natalie Merchant or Cowboy Junkies would absolutely love this because "Eveningland" is a fairy-tale, peaceful place where Americana, country and folk are fleshed out with the lushest orch-pop. And the singer, Sally Ellison, has a soprano so sweet that it can only be compared to the incredible Sandy Denny. This is elegant, pastoral, chamber folk, but the songs are so strong and so sweetly rendered, that it does veer into MOR territory. If that doesn't concern you then you're in for a treat.
