Album Notes
What Lies Ahead is the debut full-length LP of classically-trained violinist and singer-songwriter Yvette Cornelia, who has recorded with independent artists the likes of Van Dyke Parks, Gaby Moreno, and Kamasi Washington. Here, Yvette’s string arrangements and melodic precision steer a path through the clouded landscape of her heart's desire, only to come undone by the communitas of improvisatory chamber folk.

Performed by a unique nine-piece ensemble of female vocal trio, strings, and rhythm section, the songs ache with hazy longing, build, and tremble, winding themselves around the finger of a woman that wishes to seduce and even hypnotize herself into spaces beyond her experience. Songs straddle the line between highly arranged forms (classical chamber, pop) and more improvised styles (jazz, folk), between intense desire and controlled resistance that accompany all travelers into an uncertain future.

The diverse band includes Kat Shuman and Elsa Lund (vocals), Caleb Veazey (guitar), Dan Gonzalez (keys/clarinet), Ben Finley (bass), Nick Hon (drums), and mixed by Davy Sumner. Guest appearances by Brandon Coleman (Moog synth), Miroslav Tadić (guitar), and Todd Barneson (mandolin). It follows Cornelia’s EP Open It Up (2013).
