A worthy air to Sandy Denny, Vashti Bunyan, Joan Baez, Linda Thompson, Nick Drake and, more suitably, Gillian Welch, the American Joan Shelley carries on their torch. The folk singer from Louisville who had Wilco’s Jeff Tweedy produce her eponymous 2017 debut album continues her scenic journey with a unique and moving grace. The melodies and rhythms of songs on Like the River Loves the Sea contain fragments of the multiple musical traditions that make up the sonority of her native Kentucky: Irish, British, African to only mention a few. For Shelley, “the most beautiful music is that which converses with the all-seeing divine, the trees and ancient beings that are witnesses to the entirety of human history. These songs represent part of this conversation.” And this divinity is indeed present on titles such as When What It Is where a tranquil piano envelops a guitar and pure vocals; the result is dumbfounding… Much like her predecessors, Joan Shelley is never superfluous and delivers an incandescent folk artistry. Calm moments and silences allow her to create an atmosphere of beauty and purity. Less is more, more than ever… © Marc Zisman/Qobuz

Americana, America Through its Roots

The title may sound like a nebulous marketing ploy, and yet for about twenty years, Americana had been summarizing this blend of rock, country, blues and rhythm ‘n’ blues. And like in every big family, you’ll find almost every type of person: the rebellious daughter, the cultivated uncle, the agitated father, the driven cousin, etc.

Mark Knopfler and Dire Straits: A Love-Hate Relationship

On 14 April 2018, Dire Straits were finally inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Even Mark Knopfler seemed touched by this honour, hoping to be handed the award by the likes of Bob Dylan or Eric Clapton. But in the end, Dire Straits moved into the pantheon of rockers without their star, which made for one of the saddest ceremonies in history. The absence was almost symbolic of the relationship between the lead singer and his group.

Guy Clark, poet and troubadour

He was worshipped by Johnny Cash and many others, but remained largely unknown until his death two years ago, in May 2016. Who was Guy Clark, the immense Texan songwriter, the unmatched narrator, the troubadour with the husky voice whose compositions were interpreted by all the big names of country and folk?
