Listen to Wishing Well
The New York Times described Cheyenne’s 2010 debut, Before Lately, as “sweet without being cloying, weary without hopelessness,” noting the vast space between notes, yet lack of air. Before Lately was a slow-burning, introspective, meditative affair.
According to ListenBeforeYouBuy.net, her follow-up EP We Don’t Need (Yep Roc 2012) “explores a range of new styles in just six short tracks" and "is almightily good.” Lending a cohesion to this sonic kaleidoscope is a voice that Daytrotter described as “a tone that allows you to stretch your head back to that last great and true love that you experienced - the best form of it that ever came your way - and feel as if it never left.”
Setting us up to expect the unexpected, Cheyenne will release her next full-length record Among the Grey in early summer of 2013. With a harder edge at times and a heart-breaking ballad just when you need it, this record is sure to gain a broader audience and more die-hard fans for her ever-changing artistic abilities. Among the Grey was co-produced by Cheyenne and Kevin Ratterman (sound engineer for My Morning Jacket’s Circuital) and once again showcases her multi-instrumental and arranging skills.
NPR chose Cheyenne as one of their ten “Discoveries at SXSW 2011.” With a record like Among the Grey waiting in the wings and a dynamic live show to please her fans old and new, you can be sure that she won’t go unnoticed this year...
