myriam gendron – not so deep as a well (mama bird)

montreal-based singer-songwriter myriam gendron relied not on her own words for this album but on the words of blacklisted civil rights activist and writer dorothy parker.  the album benefits from parker’s melancholic and visual poetry, all set to sparse fingerpickings and delivered in gendron’s disciplined, warm voice.  there is only subtle variation between tracks, making it difficult to choose a standout, but the album is notable for its timeless, past-meets-present quality.
