Plainly stated and in my humble opinion, Sera Cahoone, formerly a member of Carissa’s Wierd and Band of Horses, released one of the most compelling albums of last year. The collection of songs that make up Deer Creek Canyon, her long-awaited third solo effort after 2008′s acclaimed Only as the Day is Long, are a perfect distillation of the Northwest Pacific in sound, feel, and aesthetic. The country-tinged Americana songs are influenced, tempered, and affected by the geography and atmosphere of her home state Washington.
Before her stop at Newtown Square, PA’s Burlap & Bean on Friday, February 1st, Cahoone will be appearing for an in-store performance on Monday, January 28th at 7 PM at Main Street Music, located in Manayunk. Below, you can download the title track to Deer Creek Canyon.
