While Teni Rane does sit in the folky singer-songwriter space, there’s a lot more going on here. She has a voice that is stunningly delicate and unwaveringly strong. Fans of Jewel will find much to love here, as will those coming from a more bluegrass, Alison Krauss-esque end of the spectrum. Rane is also an accomplished acoustic guitarist, and she works with some exemplary musicians (cellist Dave Eggar, guitarist Phil Faconti, bassist Roger Gustafsson). Rane co-produces, and she creates her own sleeve art too. She’s clearly something of a renaissance woman, and that is to be admired. But it is the evocative lyrics and the sweet brilliance of her voice that is so compelling.
