Review by John Noyd
January 2013

Wise beyond her twenty-six years, Crain’s maturity burns bright in the nuanced lyrics and pain-staking arrangements lending polished accomplishments to her Americana leanings, yet for all her advances there is a sweet unaffected directness to, “Kid Face,” that comforts even in its darker incarnations, slipping its hard-won wisdom between infectious melodies, haunting harmonies and poetic detail. A deeply personal record, Crain’s roller-coaster mojo quietly surmises then affectionately surprises; riddled in tickled fiddles and sparkling guitars her songs straddle challenges casually balancing slow-roasted condolences inside breezy reprieves and razor-sharp sympathies. From Appalachian ballads to Choctaw gothic, “Kid,” wrestles fluid roots, hobo folk and hungry country-blues fueled by soul-seeking eagerness, rippling forgiveness and chronic honesty for a rich, authentic album capturing the unmentionable and liberating the unquenchable.
