Angel Snow, McSwain Trio CL Recommends

When: Sat., April 7 2012
Price: $10 advance
ANGEL SNOW With a name straight out of an Appalachian fable, it figures that the story of Angel Snow’s big break is a showbiz fairytale. A casual meeting with Alison Krause led to a fruitful collaboration with Krause’s songwriting brother Viktor. The partnership netted Angel and Viktor the newgrass buzz cut “Lie Awake” that features prominently on Krause’s Paper Airplane. This slightly magical success story befits Snow and her songs, which are lilting and ethereal yet remain grounded in dusty acoustic folk pop. Achingly heartfelt vocals recall Sarah McLachlan minus the new age atmospherics, and the song craft traces a straight line to the rapture, redemption and brooding beauty of freak folk goddess Judee Sill.
