DLM Presents ... Emily Jane White w/ Awahnichi and Niilo Smeds
EMILY JANE WHITE
There's a rare confidence to Emily Jane White's songwriting: it's at once generous and tough-minded, reflective and unsentimental. Her work shares some elements with folk music, but the term does not do justice to her ambitious songwriting and robust arrangements. White possesses a singular voice inspired by the raveled threads of the uncanny in American culture, including depression-era blues and classic works of gothic literature such as Toni Morrison's Beloved and Charlotte Perkins Gilman's The Yellow Wallpaper.
AWAHNICHI (RC Essig)
Awahnichi achieves a rare victory for true storytellers with his poetic tales of sorrow and beauty. Essig, the former frontman for Merced's El Olio Wolof spins yarns about animals, love and death in his signature Shel Silverstein style. His songs are patient, tender and simple and he captures crowds with the profound meaning of the stories he shares.
