"Lovely, animal-fantasy Californian folk... Sioux has a great knack for creatively doubling her own vocals, like artfully jumbled currents in an estuary or clouds warping through one another." - THE FADER
"Combining the artful subtlety of Marissa Nadler, the idiosyncratic vocal flourishes of Joanna Newsom and the worldly flair of Devendra Banhart... her music exists in ageless suspension, both pleasantly tranquil and strangely alluring." - SPIN
Mariee Sioux has long been a fixture in the California folk scene, revered for her delicate fingerpicking and mystical songs that reflect her Native American heritage and her upbringing in the Sierra Nevadas, land that resides on occupied Nisenen territory in Northern California. Sioux is a musician's musician, having collaborated with Bonnie "Prince" Billy and Hope Sandoval of Mazzy Star and opened for such greats as Joanna Newsom and Buffy Sainte-Marie. Today, she announces her third record Grief In Exile, due out June 7 on Night Bloom Records. Unlike some of Sioux's more stream-of-consciousness earlier work, this album comes from a more refined and deeply personal space. The songs show how indigenous remembrance, plant medicine, and ceremonial traditions played an important role in Sioux's recovery from alcoholism, depression, and intense heartbreaks.
