The influential rock critic Ann Powers of NPR said of Anna Tivel's latest album "It only took four and a half minutes to know that I treasured this release. That's the length of "Alleyway," the "Cat Person" of folk songs — a perfectly drawn portrait of an initially inconsequential, life-altering, messed-up romance. The rest of Tivel's album repeatedly achieves this exquisite balance of the quotidian and the sublime with imagery that's deeply poetic without being fussy, in musical arrangements that form like intuition around Tivel's insights."
Rolling Stone Country covered Maya deVitry's latest and said "Though the album’s setting is decidedly wild, de Vitry’s songs still grapple with and confront the human condition in the present moment. Drawing on her years with the folk trio the Stray Birds — which disbanded in 2018 — de Vitry’s songwriting balances her intensely personal, microscopic style of storytelling with a straightforward, accessible delivery."
She continues “I kind of give the audience the benefit of the doubt,” she explains. “I think that just because they may not have experienced something that I’m writing about doesn’t mean that they won’t be able to connect to it and relate to it.”
