Letters from Gilead
Released on November 12, 2021, this is collection of songs inspired by The Handmaid's Tale. The album as a whole defies categorization into a single genre. Straightforward roots-rock (Letters from Gilead, Closet Scrawl, Under His Eye), alt-country/indie-folk (My Name is June, Blue, Sliver of Joy), speakeasy swing (Jezebel’s), a lullaby (Hannah), and a piano ballad that shifts into something like gospel (Feels So Good to Fly) all coexist on an album that concludes with a piece that would be right at home on a musical theater stage (Oh Canada). The common thread is the stories of people hanging on to love, hope, courage, and humanity, while trying to survive the dystopian nightmare that is Gilead.
