Anderson, Marisa – “Mercury” – [Mississippi Records]
Portland, Oregon based Marisa Anderson says she applies classical technique to her music. No matter, this is lovely stuff for solo guitar and lap steel (no vocals) that shows stunning virtuosity. Her renditions of her compositions bridge boundaries of folk, blues and country.
This album is said to recall experiences from her travels that began at age 19 and continued for 15 years.
Haunting, lush, beautiful.
