'Will Oldham was one of the first people to spot Joanna Newsom's unique vocal talent. Having checked her first self-release album, 'Walnut Whales', Will Oldham invited Joanna to tour with him across the USA. Joanna's music has more of an affinity with the folk revival of the 60s, or the bluegrass movement at present, than with most contemporary "folk" scenes. She sings about whalebones, sleep, grammar, molluscs, automobiles, owls, burning boats, string collections, milk, teeth, bridges, colours, and kin, all in an otherworldly, ragged-sweet voice that defies convention. Her harp arrangements are at times ethereal and delicate, at others galloping and ornate presenting not so much a mere fusion of influences, as an inquiry into the places where those influences naturally intersect.'
Joanna Newsom's latest album is called 'The Milk-Eyed Mender' and is available to buy now.
