It is as much a vocal album as a guitar album, and Louise’s voice is a ideal complement to her six-stringed wizardry, only heightening the beauty and deepening the mystic vibe of her songs.


Sometimes Deeper Woods is a loud, beating-wind squall, and sometimes it's a gentle murmur. Either way, it wraps the listener up in many rich, entrancing layers.

A subtle masterpiece that gets better with every listen. Time will deem this a touch stone and a classic.

Appalachian baroque folk. meticulously crafted songs, viscerally evocative, beautifully played and sung. her style has that rare "found" quality of a Linda Perhacs or a Kathy Heideman, the unadulterated sincerity of raw, natural talent but with a cogent artistic vision. she's a great guitarist but it's the emotion in her voice that sets this record apart and makes it a singular achievement.
Purchasing Deeper Woods from Amazon helps support Album of the Year.
