“Dogs in the Daylight is as close to a masterpiece as a folk album by an emerging singer-songwriter can get.” – No Depression
Jeffrey Martin of Portland, Oregon has released three albums, two of which on the independent label Fluff and Gravy Records. His latest, One Go Around, debuted in October 2017. In its review of the album, No Depression declared, “Portland singer-songwriter Jeffrey Martin has proven with his last few albums and his many shows that he truly possesses a gift for marrying Americana music and expertly penned words in an expressive way that paints a vivid picture of people, places, and events that are at once relatable and highly interesting.“
Martin has shared shows with Sean Hayes, Gregory Alan Isakov, Courtney Marie Andrews, Jeffrey Foucault, Joe Pug, Peter Mulvey, Sean Rowe, and others.
Anna’s most recent album, The Question, was called ‘one of the most ambitious folk records of 2019’ by NPR. She was selected as the winner of both the Telluride Troubadour songwriting award and the Kerrville New Folk award. Most recently she was awarded the ASCAP Foundation’s Sammy Cahn Award, which recognizes promising or aspiring lyricists. Her previous album, ‘Small Believer,’ was heralded by NPR as “an album that repeatedly achieves this exquisite balance of the quotidian and the sublime.”
“Tivel’s lyrics are simply devastating — these are the kinds of songs that will break you down and then build you back up. “ – No Depression
“Singer-songwriters are often called poets. In truth, only a few deliver the deep insight and sense of the new that breaking through the predictable achieves. Anna Tivel is one.” NPR, Ann Powers
