RHR264 - The Nocturne Diaries - Eliza Gilkyson

The Nocturne Diaries

"Gilkyson reminds us that love can redeem the bad times, and her vocals, strong but supple, bring an honest and powerful belief to whatever she chooses to sing." - iTunes

"Though her career has certainly produced its share of great songs that tackle all these difficult nighttime topics, what's new about The Nocturne Diaries is that those themes come to light in an even more honest and arresting way." - NPR Folk Alley

The Nocturne Diaries is a beautiful, haunting album inspired by the sort of thoughts that keep us awake at night in this modern world where the news always seems to be bad. The songs range from uptempo country stompers to a haunting version of the folk classic "Fast Freight" by her father Terry Gilkyson. Never one to shy away from politics and social issues, she writes about an adolescent gunman ("An American Boy") and looks through the eyes of an abused teenage girl ("Not My Home") with an empathy and insight that's made her one of the most beloved folk artists today. She closes the album on a hopeful note with the lullaby, "All Right Here," of finding the things you need most close at hand with family and home. Eliza describes the songs as "torches that illuminated my process over the last year, personal reflections that the nighttime inspired."
