Parker's poems have occasionally been turned into songs over the years, but they have never been subjected to such a thorough investigation as the one Myriam Gendron provides on Not So Deep as a Well. Myriam's delivery and arrangements are wondrous. Her guitar playing has the same spare, rhythmic circularity as Leonard Cohen's 1960s recordings, creating harmonic density inside of a small, rich palette of emotional colors. Her vocals have a a still and haunted quality that suits the material beautifully.
Maybe one day I'll know more about Myriam Gendron, but for now this is enough. I can 99% guarantee you'll love this.
