ALICE JAGO-SINGLE LAUNCH 2010
Weekly Acoustic Club
Label: Stubborn Records
… Neat rhyming couplets and louche-limbed melodies peeping out from under a look that’s gazing decidedly askance at the world. Folk-fuelled arrangements, including banjo and bouzouki… but the wistful guitar lines whisper of a kinship with the more left-field musings of Joanna Newsom- Irish Times

“DUBLIN SINGER-SONGWRITER OPENS HER ACCOUNT WITH EXQUISITE DEBUT. ...The sound is bucolic roots rock not a million miles from Neil's Harvest,a breezier Gillian Welch ,a folkier Rickie Lee Jones,a touch of the Dusty on the vocal.And Jago can sell a song in the subtlest and slyest of ways. .. like they were written 200 years ago,and may well be written again 200 years from now.Jago also seems to have an instinct for just the right modulation required to lift a song out of merit into distinction.She does waltzes,she does shuffles,she does winsome and wistful and exasperated and lovelorn,often within the same verse. Beautifully produced ..concieved and nurtured.Sample the exquisite swing of 'New St South',or the tired-and-emotional slowdance of 'Warrior',or the dusky jazz of 'Sea Song',or the Goodnight Moon beauty of 'Lullaby', her finest and most fragile vocal.Alice Jago is a girl you don't hear everyday.
