the spectre of Joanna Newsom hangs heavy on her breathy vocal evokes the sweeping alt-country of Lambchop. Gorgeous.
Singer-songwriter Joana Serrat from Vic in Catalonia, Spain, has made a name for herself with a folk sound which has obvious American roots, hints of jazz and a good dose of pop. After enchanting audiences with her 2014 album Dear Great Canyon, she returns with Cross The Verge, an album mixed in Montreal with producer Howard Bilerman (Arcade Fire), showing us another side of this ever growing songwriter.
On her third album, Joana lays bare all the cracks, inconsistencies and fears that come with life, with the album revealing itself to be an especially beautiful tribute to the acknowledgment of loss and the acceptance of the uncertain.
An amazing artist, Im a huge fan an astonishing voice and I love her songwriting
