Album of the Week: Vera Sola

Gothic drama with folk pluck: A haunting.

Would you be surprised to learn that multi-instrumentalist Vera Sola (she plays all instruments on this record), AKA Danielle Aykroyd [footnote 1], was also a poet? And a professional rodeo rider? Her new album Shades is full of wry witty words (dark humor) set into gothic-y (horror) Americana set pieces creating a world of her own and we’re invited in. I recommend taking that invite as you will be richly rewarded.

Buy Shades here.
