Emily Jane White is an American Alt/Folk singer/songwriter from California.

"Victorian America" is her second release and one of evocative mood laidened storytelling all delivered with Emily's dusky meloncholic tones, a blend of brooding sparce guitar and lush sweeping orchestration.

A bit of a slow burn, but well worth the wait for it to work its way under your skin.

By The Wolf TOP 50 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 1 Jun. 2010
Format: Audio CD
Emily Jane White's second album 'Victorian America' is
a revelation. Her 2007 debut 'Dark Undercoat' was a very
strong first showing but three years on and we find that
the blades with which she whittles her creations into being
(as though from the boughs of old oaks and maples) are sharper
and more dexterous than ever. The steady hand and stout
heart which crafted these twelve fine songs has ensured that
they are built to last. Little timeless wonders in fact.

Although substantially different in style I am reminded
at times of the work of the late, great singer/songwriter
David Ackles. Deeply rooted Americana; humble but thick-skinned.
With a keen eye to the past and a cautious glance to the future
Ms White keeps us firmly transfixed in her elusive here and now.

She has a fine voice. Rich and ripe in the middle;
fragile and beguilingly vulnerable in her upper register;
never less than utterly true to her melancholy muse.

The fine ensemble of musicians who help put flesh on the bones
of these starkly simple but deeply affecting melodies is magical.

On opening track 'Never Dead', Henry Neagle's pedal steel guitar,
Carey Lamprecht's violin and and Jen Grady's cello, weave a
meltingly gorgeous tapestry of sound around Ms White's plaintive
delivery of the haunting melody and lyrics.

The four-square simple beat and folksy blues of 'Stairs'
embraces a brooding ballad whose timeless quality is redolent of
vast prairies and dark woods exploding with chattering magpies.
Music of the soil and the sky with a sharp sting in its tail.

Ms White is a natural story-teller. 'The Baby' is another
powerfully chilling narrative.

I am a real fan of the previous album, and jumped at buying this one. First listening was disappointing, but as with many of the best albums it could be a 'grower'. I'm still working on it, it's not there yet..
