Jenny Lysander, 21 year old Swedish folk prodigy releases her first album “Northern Folk” on the 27th April. The album was produced and arranged by Piers Faccini and recorded over two sessions in the summer months of 2014. Hidden away in the Mediterranean landscape, deep in the woods, far from the noise and interference of any city, Faccini’s rural studio became the perfect setting for recording Jenny Lysander’s delicate songs. Timeless and unique as Lysander’s music is, of today’s songwriters, Jenny Lysander’s profound and poetic voice bears some comparison to Laura Marling, whose own recording career also began at an early age and with a style that defied simple categorization.
“Lysander echoes the same understated beauty as folk music greats like Nick Drake and Fairport Convention, with a modern tint that draws comparison to Agnes Obel and Ane Brun.” (Drunken Werewolf)
