Anna Tivel

Folk, Americana
Location: Portland

Anna Tivel’s fourth studio album Small Believer is a collection of patchwork stories drawn from conversations with strangers on the road and in restaurants, bars and rest stops. Produced by guitar mastermind Austin Nevins (Josh Ritter, Anaïs Mitchell), the songs float on a raft of electric guitar, pump organ, and sparse bass and drums. Small Believer is spacious and honest, a lyric-driven exploration of the things that move within us. Tivel takes great care with every syllable and every story, chipping away until what remains is blindingly true and deeply affecting. For fans of Patty Griffin and Brandi Carlile, Small Believer is out now on vinyl, CD and digital formats via Fluff & Gravy Records.
