JOAN SHELLEY – ” Rivers and Vessels ” EP

Tags: , , ,

Covers EP recorded February 2018 with guest appearances from Bonnie “Prince” Billy, Daniel Martin Moore, Julia Purcell, and Doug Paisley. Covering Nick Drake can be tricky, but Joan Shelley manages just fine with her gorgeous, heartfelt rendition of Five Leaves Left’s lead off track . She doesn’t do anything radical with the song — she just lets it breathe, wearing its wistful melancholy like a favorite winter coat. Joan Shelley is back on the road this year, for a few dates, she’ll be supporting the guy who played lead guitar on the original “Time Has Told Me” — the mighty Richard Thompson himself, who has been known to cover the tune from time to time. Maybe Joan can coax him onstage for a duet.

100% of sales from the EP on Bandcamp will go to the Kentucky Waterways Alliance. This exclusively digital album is also paired with a limited edition print set, whose proceeds also benefit the organization. The print sets were illustrated by Lettie Jane Rennekamp, and printed by Patrick Masterson Letterpress.

Sincere thanks to the musicians who volunteered their time and talent to this project. Also thank you Jessica George of RPM for coordinating and motivating, Lettie Jane Rennekamp for contributing her drawings and the title, Patrick Masterson Letterpress Printing, Catherine Irwin, Glen Dentinger, Mike Quinn, Jessica Kane, and everyone at the Kentucky Waterways Alliance for their vital work.
