Somewhere between a lonely sea and a lifeless orange desert, alongside a railroad track, surrounded by farmland, on a slow riverbank, Dana Falconberry is writing songs. Haunting, earnest, playful songs that bravely explore the often puzzling territory of the human heart with the wisdom, compassion, and understanding of a true original. In person, as on record, Falconberry's low-key charisma and unconventional vocals will instantly capture your heart. Her down-home sincerity, nuanced folk-influenced melodies and a lyrical sense that blends classic simplicity with subtle literary finesse marks her as a surprisingly original artist. For a young songwriter, the songs on Paper Sailboat are marked by an unusually confident artistic voice. -j. poet
