ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Jaspar Lepak is a folk/Americana songstress whose remarkable gift for melody is only surpassed by her poetry. Playful, intimate, heartfelt, and intense, her lyrics expose a brave vulnerability as well as an art for storytelling, while her clear, strong voice penetrates the heart. Singing with “the kind of Americana, lullaby ghost of a voice that listeners search for in roots music” (Twin Cities A.V. Club), Lepak charms as she stirs, and her performances keep your toes tapping and your heart on your sleeve.

Since 2004, Lepak has been sharing her songs throughout the Midwest, but from 2009 to 2011 she lived in Durban, South Africa. Performing on some of the country’s premier stages, she gained an enthusiastic following, and in July of 2011, she recorded her sixth original CD, FORGIVING WIND which Rolling Stone South Africa hailed as an album full of “beauty and original charm.”

Lepak currently resides in Seattle, and WIDE WORLD is her 2014 spring release. The album includes nine fresh arrangements of old favorites and three new originals. Recorded mostly live in studio, it features back-up performances by the talented musicians who most often join her on tour. Crafted with simple elegance, Wide World showcases the best of what Lepak’s live performances have to offer: humor, vulnerability, an emphasis on nature and the seasons, and a quiet fierceness that champions the female voice and honors the emotions of the heart.

Pure, good, and beautiful in every way
I'm a new Jaspar fan, having been introduced to her music just a few weeks ago at a songwriters-in-the-round show. Having purchased this CD a week or so later, I have become even more appreciative of her music. The arrangements are mostly spare, leaving plenty of space for the poetry and truth of her lyrics to settle on your ears and in your heart. At her best, her vocals, guitar and accompanying instruments yield a tender but impactful window of the world. I feel like a better person every time I listen to this album. What more could you ask from an artist?
