In The Clear

$15.00

Suzanne Jarvie’s sophomore record In the Clear picks up where Spiral Road left off — delving deeper into the aftermath of her son’s brain injury — and going beyond it. The tunes tunnel into feelings and impressions that are the essence of Suzanne’s artistry, luminous rabbit holes that merge mysticism with reflections on life’s ups and downs that fans of Joni Mitchell, Bob Dylan or Lucinda Williams would appreciate.

DESCRIPTION

Suzanne Jarvie’s sophomore record In the Clear picks up where Spiral Road left off — delving deeper into the aftermath of her son’s brain injury — and going beyond it. The tunes tunnel into feelings and impressions that are the essence of Suzanne’s artistry, luminous rabbit holes that merge mysticism with reflections on life’s ups and downs that fans of Joni Mitchell, Bob Dylan or Lucinda Williams would appreciate.

Producer Hugh Christopher Brown keeps the music steeped in mostly acoustic sound, and the mix of dobro, mandolin, guitar, violin and bass.


Available on CD and digital download from Bandcamp, on iTunes, and streaming on Apple Music, Google Play, and Spotify.

Released January 22, 2019


REVIEWS

“Two weeks ago I hadn’t heard of this singer-songwriter from Toronto. Now, she is on repeat play constantly having audibly devoured this album, and tracking down its inspiring predecessor, ‘Spiral Road’ …this is an album I will return to over the years. I can’t wait to hear the next chapter of the journey.”

Folk And Tumble

“In The Clear is a fabulous recording, and, as far as I’m concerned, the best album of 2019 so far.” (Listen to the full interview here.)

FolkRootsRadio.com

“Anyone with a taste for Emmylou Harris or Lucinda Williams needs to check Jarvie out. Serious talent here.”

Vancouver Sun

“Suzanne’s sophomore album follows confidently and precisely in the lines of her first album, ‘Spiral Road.’… Two records down, here is a new major singer of note on the block. Listen, think and learn.
(8/10)”

Americana-UK

“From the tragedy of her son’s misfortune, something beautiful and moving now also arises. Songs that you have to cherish.” (Translated from Dutch)

AltCountryForum.nl

“It was amazing how Suzanne Jarvie made her debut as a beginner singer-songwriter four years ago, and it is at least as clever as she is now following her debut… The production is beautiful, the instrumentation atmospheric and accurate, the stories are beautiful and penetrating and the songs are appealing.” (Translated from Dutch)

De krenten uit de pop

“Every music lover has a few artists and album that strike right to their soul. I am so completely in tune with Jarvie that I don’t think I can offer a truly objective opinion… the sound of Jarvie’s voice is an instant balm on my soul… Spellbinding.”

Aiding & Abetting (aidabet.com)

“That little dab of pedal steel and violin gives this the feel of generations past; a wonderful homage to the smooth tones of early seventies folk-country. My first impressions of Suzanne Jarvie here drew comparisons to Emmylou Harris, Karen Carpenter, and maybe a little Suzy Bogguss too… Jarvie delivers with both pain and passion through her pitch-perfect vocals.”

Great Dark Wonder

“I could listen to her daily for the next year and never become fatigued for the experience… Lovely music that works best as a whole, In The Clear’s songs reverberate within this listener’s spiritual and intellectual core.”
