Introducing >>> Cinder Well

A member of anarchist folk project Blackbird Raum, American songwriter Amelia Baker’s time on the circuit with Irish trad-punk group Lankum eventually led her to a small settlement in County Clare, and to her music as Cinder Well, where echoes of quarantine, isolation, and madness in small town Ireland inform her upcoming album No Summer.

Original songs boldly rub shoulders with careful reworkings of those of traditional Appalachian sources and throughout, her remarkable voice cuts to the bone like some ghostly ballad singer bound to sing these words from here to eternity.

Listen to the haunting doom-folk of The Cuckoo below. Order the album via Bandcamp here.
