The folk-pop tinged music of Brooklyn singer-songwriter Kelli Scarr is pure and poignant, smooth and seductive, reminiscent at times of Neil Young or Gillian Welch. Scarr — who has toured and worked with Moby and been nominated for an Emmy for her soundtrack work on HBO’s In a Dream — wears her heart on her sleeve lyrically, and her cool and soothing vocals are especially soul-stirring.
Featured song: “Dangling Teeth”
Dangling Teeth, the new album by Kelli Scarr, is out now via Silence Breaks.
