Wipers) on drums.
Kendall Core is a singer-songwriter whose gothic Folk-Rock sounds are quickly becoming a compelling presence in Portland, Oregon. Her debut album ‘Crazy Dog' is inspired by the process of grief and healing. Her voice cuts through, raw and pure, and is the perfect vehicle for the haunting stories of life. There is hope in her lyrical reflection and a` time-worn wisdom uncommon in someone so young.
The vulnerability of Core's lyrics are carried by a soulful warm tone, occasionally operatic, echoing with a haunted yearning. The lyrics are born of troublesome questions and truths leaving just a few windows where light breaks in. There is a guarded hope in her reflection along with time-worn wisdom, captivating when discovered in someone so young.
The overall sonic impression of the group offers a timeless and nostalgic feeling one might expect from traditional Americana roots. However, the players incorporate a heavier texture that betrays them as contemporary. 'Crazy Dog' may be the most appropriate soundtrack for a pensive and longing shift, alone on a barstool, that ends in knowing not all has fallen apart. These songs reflect the poetry and passion of visionaries like Patti Smith, Neil Young, Neko Case and Jeff Buckley.
