CHIG002: Sarah Siskind, Covered
June 28, 2013
We are excited to share with you Chigliak’s second release, Sarah Siskind’s 2003 debut record, Covered. Covered will be release on vinyl and digital formats on July 16, 2013.
Ten years ago, a 22 year old songwriter entered a recording studio with producer Tucker Martine to make a record. Poised with one of the greatest talents for carrying Appalachian music into new places, Sarah Siskind penned a record in which every moment, every stitch thread perfectly. Recorded to 2-inch analog tape, Covered is a masterful record, on which American music and guitar icon, and one of Sarah’s musical heroes, Bill Frisell plays a key role. Listen and let it shake you down. - Justin Vernon
