ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Andersen has made a name for herself as a sought-after fiddler and session player in the Northeast for the last ten years, and has played in bluegrass, country, rock, jazz & Celtic groups. During stints with The McKrells, the John Lincoln Wright Band, Marshall Crenshaw, New England Bluegrass Band, Child's Play Fiddle Orchestra, and John Herald among others, her fiery fiddling has run the gamut from Nashville country, alt rock, swing, bluegrass, celtic, folk, to various traditional fiddle styles and her work has brought her from bars in the Bronx to the stage of Carnegie Hall, tours of California to coffee houses of her native New England, Japan to Sweden, National Public Radio to the Conan O'Brien show.

The last 3 years she has teamed up with songwriter and acoustic guitar legend Harvey Reid to record a highly-acclaimed duo CD "The Great Sad River", and to do a lot of concert touring. She is no longer a side-gal, but a powerful solo artist with a growing repertoire of remarkable original material, and striking interpretations of traditional and contemporary songs. Her solo recordings "The Girl I Left Behind" and "Right Where I Should Be" shine the spotlight on her as a songwriter, fiddler and singer of surprising versatility, depth and poignancy.

"Youth and strength flow through her voice. She's got power and conviction. She's writing new songs and retelling old stories, and there's still something mysterious in her music that sounds like it comes from an ancient and pure source." Minnesota Public Radio

"That neo-traditional current is starting to be felt among the ranks of New England songwriters ...among the hottest ...New Hampshire fiddler-singer Joyce Andersen." The Boston Globe
"A thread of the virtues of individual emancipation runs throughout, not so much a feminist statement but a realization that an individual must move out and move on in life." The Portsmouth Herald

Tamara Turner, CD Baby

This woman covers the gamut in soul, emotion and vision with equal skill and ins
Pouring herself into her music, with aching vocals, sawing fiddle and a conviction so strong that you sense an impenetrable, solid wall of emotion, Joyce delivers an impassioned and heart-swelling album of country folk, spilling over with bluegrass influences. With a voice that can be warm and mellow like Shawn Colvin, or be a persistent tug-of-war on the heart, similar to Amy Ray of Indigo Girls, Andersen is right up there with Allison Krauss and Gillian Welch and yet her smart, sophisticated songwriting and solid folk roots will appeal to die-hard Indigo Girls fans like myself. This woman covers the gamut in soul, emotion and vision with equal skill and inspiration. Highly, highly recommended.
