Rachel Baiman

Shame

FREE DIRT RECORDS



cd

Released: 7th Jul 2017

£12.99


On the album's ten tracks, Baiman commands attention with songwriting prowess and a depth of presence well beyond her 27 years.

The album is a thought-provoking exploration on life as a female in America, with a strong lyrical focus on social justice issues. Despite the serious subject matter, the sound of the album remains light and centers around groove-based, largely acoustic instrumentation. Produced by Andrew Marlin of Mandolin Orange, the lush and varied musical texture heard on Shame is a departure from Baiman's previous stripped-down duo work with 10 String Symphony. Baiman's vocals are arresting throughout; simultaneously rich and subdued, her husky tone and unaffected delivery pair beautifully with the record's stew of folk, alt country, and gospel sounds.
