FOLK ALLEY PREMIERES “GO TELL A BIRD”

“Go Tell a Bird” does everything a folk song is supposed to do—and does it exceptionally well. It is both simple and complex, digestible and impossible, distilling some of the most seemingly complicated, urgent and timeless human debates down to 35 words in fewer than four minutes. Its instrumentation is collaborative and swelling, like the cooperation between a pair of wings and a good hard gust.”

NPR MUSIC PREMIERES “MY BODY IS A LETTER” -

This video is nothing short of astonishing. Its dazzling effects, accomplished simply with stop-motion animation, large sheets of black paper and an exacto knife, are mind boggling."

ROLLING STONE COUNTRY PREMIERES “ANYBODY’S FRIEND”

“Though the album’s setting is decidedly wild, de Vitry’s songs still grapple with and confront the human condition in the present moment. Drawing on her years with the folk trio the Stray Birds — which disbanded in 2018 — de Vitry’s songwriting balances her intensely personal, microscopic style of storytelling with a straightforward, accessible delivery.”

BLUE RIDGE OUTDOORS PREMIERES “ANYONE AT ALL”

“There isn’t a more appropriate title for such a release, as – for any musician – shedding a band and embarking on a solo journey is an adaptation of the highest order. Adaptations is a collection of remarkable tunes, recorded with a stellar ensemble of musicians, draw on love, freedom, and introspection and prove remarkably that De Vitry will be just fine on her new solo adventure.”
