Cleaned and Demaged
"O'Donovan, a vocalist of unerring instinct." — The New York Times
"The newest darling of the Americana set." — USA Today
Americana singer-songwriter Aoife O'Donovan spent the last 10 years playing in the celebrated progressive string band, Crooked Still, and has been collaborating with numerous other artists including Yo-Yo Ma, Chris Thile, Ollabelle, Sometymes Why, Jerry Douglas, Jim Lauderdale, Sara Watkins, and Kathy Mattea to name a few. Aoife's writing came to the attention of Alison Krauss, when she recorded Aoife's "Lay My Burden Down" in 2011 for her album Paper Airplane.
The thing about fossils is that they take a very long time in the making, and it’s not an entirely intentional process. The making of Aoife O’Donovan’s debut album, Fossils, has hardly been a glacial affair, but it has spent rather more than a decade forming about in her creative subconscious. It was time well spent, for she’s crafted a beautiful, timeless record, the natural evolution of an accomplished singer and songwriter.
