shiloh_yo I discovered Shannon Lay thanks to her appearance on Audiotree Live. She has a really beautiful voice and I enjoy her songwriting a lot. Every time I listen to her music I get this retrospective feeling. Perfect tunes for taking a long walk. Favorite track: The Moons Detriment.

Young Money Hotz's just utterly disarming. Favorite track: The Moons Detriment.

Thibaut Devigne Some sort of folk music, mainly on classic guitar, with a few strings here and there. There is a research in the tunes, they go in different directions and I don't like them equally, even though I liked the album enough. Some of the ones with the less effect and those tunes that seem the most personal (such as Moon detriment or Coast) are beautiful examples of songwriting. Favorite track: Coast.

"Debut release on Kevin Morby's new imprint with Woodsist Records. Shannon Lay's Living Water is an instant classic. Recorded by Emmet Kelly (Cairo Gang, Bonnie Prince Billy, Ty Segall) in his Los Angeles home studio, this is an album where you can hear the room reacting to the music taking shape around it. Shannon has a voice that transcends time and space. You can't tell if she's old or new, if she's sitting next to you, on a mountain top, or down in some canyon. Already her second LP to be released in 2017, Shannon is a prolific songwriter, one who lives and breaths melody and with guitar skills to boot. Despite it's 14 tracks, Living Water comes in well under 40 minutes, but like Pink Moon or Just Another Diamond Day before it, this is music so potent it exists outside the realms of time - but in a world specific only to itself and the new feelings it creates.

Shannon has been dominating the local scene in Los Angeles over the past two years, leaving everyone who witnesses completely breathless. Having just finished a tour with Ty Segall, Shannon is set to support Kevin Morby on a national tour this fall."
