Release Date:11/19/2013;Notes:Emily Baker's new album, Dear River is a compelling song cycle that marks an unmistakable watershed in her rapidly burgeoning career. Full of contrasting dynamics and a broad cavalcade of emotions, Dear River is a fascinating exploration of self, place and people that see Emily blend her own story into the wider joys and sorrows gleaned from her rigorous researches into others' experiences of travel and emigration. The pressing is on 180 gram vinyl and is manufactured by the prestigious Pallas firm in Germany, which is highly regarded by vinyl lovers everywhere. With Linn and Blue Nile producer Calum Malcolm at the helm, the result is a beautiful, sensitive, provocative and at times surprising album, all the more potent for the immaculate sound quality, gleaned from state-of-the art studios and equipment. Emily's talent is perfectly complemented by the magnificent arrangements of her band the Red Clay Halo, whose rootsy ensemble playing underpins her agile vocal blend of strength and fragility. The Red Clay Halo band consists of Gill Sandell (accordion, harmonium, piano), Jo Silverston (cello) and Anna Jenkins (violin, viola).;Track List:1. Dear River;2. Tuesday;3. Letters;4. The Leaving;5.
