New album from Joan Shelley ’04

Over the course of four albums, singer-songwriter Joan Shelley has become known for writing intimate songs that walk the line between country and folk. Her most recent self-titled album was released in the spring of 2017. Writing for NPR Music, Stephen Thompson says,
As on 2015’s sublime Over And Even, the songs here are consistently gorgeous …  As befitting its title, Joan Shelley is the sound of an artist who knows exactly who she is—buoyed by top-of-the-line collaborators, and still perfectly suited to songs that seep empathy and grace out of every impeccable note.
