Joan Shelley creates worlds and spins a story you can really find yourself falling into, like a good book, you'll find yourself obsessed with living with its dark tones and human emotions. James Elkington co-produces helping to create that beautiful clear morning picked guitar folk with an element of foreboding fuzzed reverbs.

For those who dig: Jake Xerxes Fussell, Meg Baird, Bill Callahan, Julie Byrne, Nadia Reid...

Joan Shelley returns with "The Spur" her fi­rst new album in three years. The twelve song set is a profound meditation on light and darkness, recorded in the spring of 2021 at Earthwave Farm in the Kentucky countryside.

James Elkington serves as co-producer (alongside Shelley) and the album features collaborations with Bill Callahan, Meg Baird and the British novelist Max Porter along with Shelley’s musical partner and husband Nathan Salsburg.

Shelley says: “The Spur” is the result of a period of opposite extremes: of intellectual hyper-connection and physical isolation. This album will forever be fused with the memory of our marriage, the birth of our child, and the intense joy despite the darkness”.
