Jennifer Castle writes folk songs, Pink City is a stirringly beautiful album every bit a step forward from 2011’s Castlemusic. It’s barer arrangements often just piano, guitar and voice with string arrangements from Owen Pallet – highlight just how good of a songwriter Castle is. Her singing has an intuitive style, not always following the expected melody, but soaring along on it s own current.

A journey throughout the Afro-American music, a journey in time amongst decades
