Shelter sees Chaney building on her craft in creating an eclectic crossover of classical and contemporary music. Her first instrument is the piano, but she’s equally at home and proficient on acoustic and electric guitars, as we hear on this record to great effect. A true multi-instrumentalist, she also adds cello and the warm drone of Indian harmonium to the mix. She shines with a minimalist approach, highlighting pure tones, sparse piano chords, chiming and lingering guitars, resonant open tunings and delicate, effortless fingerpicking. Her lyrics and imagery echo times both past and present – the ‘olde worlde’ era, and more personal modern and urban experiences and concerns.
