Grace Cummings voice has been a rich and raw delight for a few albums but it's on 'Ramona' that the depth of her range, the drama and that richness are truly married with the music as Jonathan Wilson, a man who can't help but make music that swells, has an instant feeling of the larger than life yet still keeps the humbleness of the song.
The latest album from Australian singer/songwriter Grace Cummings, Ramona is a work of raw truth rendered in its most beautiful form. In a departure from the self-produced approach of her 2019 debut Refuge Cove and its 2022 follow-up Storm Queen—the Melbourne-based artist worked with producer Jonathan Wilson (Angel Olsen, Father John Misty, Margo Price) and dreamed up a lavishly orchestrated sound that fully accommodates the depth and scope of her vocal prowess. With its visceral reflection on grief and self-destruction and emotional violence, Ramona brings a stunning new grandeur to Cummings’ music while refusing to soften or temper its humanity.
