about

“‘Deepest Darkness, Brightest Dawn’ is a 14-song album that is mainly made up of Lea’s violin, with her voice appearing only briefly here and there. The record as a whole feels unified, almost as if it’s one long Christmas medley that Lea sings over when the spirit strikes her.

On each track, Lea makes her violin sing in traditional and nontraditional ways. It’s always gorgeous though. Her pitch is great, and her vibrato is, too. She’s able to loop seamlessly for optimum spell-casting. As usual, Lea’s vocals sound great and uniquely her own. Her singing is a match for her violin playing in the way it trembles and lilts.

‘Deepest Darkness, Brightest Dawn’ is a lovely piece of ambient Christmas music that shares a lot in common with traditional orchestra holiday music while also being its own entity. Indeed, Gaelynn Lea’s Christmas album might be the ultimate soundtrack for getting cozy this winter.”

-Tony Bennett , Duluth News Tribune
