Cinder Well’s experimental folk music drifts between two far-flung seas: the hazy California coast where she grew up, and the wind-torn swells of Western Ireland that she’s come to love. Her music treads a sonic and lyrical path, creating a cinematic, trance-like space that elevates traditional folk music into something ethereal. Lush and expansive sounds balanced with down-tuned instruments, intricate melodies and stunning vocals provide a heavy yet hopeful atmosphere.

Cadence, the latest album from Cinder Well, released April 21, 2023 on Free Dirt Records, was recorded at Hen House Studios, just blocks from the famed Venice Beach Boardwalk in Los Angeles – the songs of Cadence search for a sense of grounding and a feeling of home. Though California’s beaches are the backdrop of this album, Irish influences emerge as well.

“Cadence consistently finds the dark places and, rather than bring them to light, finds beauty in them.” -No Depression

“an astonishingly powerful piece of work that seems to have been conceived in uncertainty but realized with the supreme assurance of one of the most consummate songwriters around.”Folk Radio UK

“pulls the music into a lane previously opened up by like minded artists such as Fleet Foxes and Laura Veirs.” -Paste Magazine
