Uncut
My Echo is both longer in reach and richer in expression than a "divorce record", as you'd expect from the sweet-voiced author of some of the most effortlessly insightful songs in the modern country-folk canon.

Mojo
A divorce album, then. But it's not gloom and vitriol, it's gorgeous.

Exclaim!

My Echo is not so much about emptiness as it is about how far one's sound can travel.

The stories are utterly compelling, told in a strong and steadfast voice, but one that can coo softly in the most charming way.

It’s heartening to hear her acknowledging and even embracing impermanence and the unknown on My Echo.

Beats Per Minute

My Echo ends up feeling both deeply sad but also oddly hopeful: arguing that, despite the pain of life, there is also joy, beauty, and freedom, if you want to find it.

Slant Magazine
To Veirs, artmaking is a means of preserving memories of loves, people, and moments lost. While these things fade, her art doesn’t.
