Emily Jane White
There's a rare confidence to Emily Jane White's songwriting: it's at once generous and tough-minded, reflective and unsentimental. Her work shares some elements with folk music, but the term does not do justice to her ambitious songwriting and robust arrangements. White possesses a singular voice inspired by the raveled threads of the uncanny in American culture, including depression-era blues and classic works of gothic literature.
"Enough gothic imagery for an Edgar Allan Poe novel." - Rolling Stone
"San Francisco-based singer-songwriter with a dark streak, has the perfect voice -- a coarse but beautifully aged alto soaked in rye….a beautifully produced collection of shiver." - NPR
Following his self-released solo debut, Before Midnight Scholar, Chicago's Judson Claiborne is a "reclamation of a name" given to him by his father. He continues to document the phenomenon of personal transformation with Time and Temperature, the new record on La Société Expéditionnaire. The distant melancholy familiar to listeners of Low Skies (Judson's previous band) has grown into emerging layers of song in the tradition of troubadours, journeymen, country-western stars and master-less wanderers. Time and Temperature is the finest blend of indie folk with progressive abandon, as the ghosts of the Great Ones smile down on Judson Claiborne with a nod and a wink.
The songs are mostly narratives about strange and beautiful travels, encounters, adventures, family, lovers, and dreams.
