From deep in the mountains of North Carolina, Angela-Faye Martin released her second album, Anniversary, in November 2012. This follows her acclaimed 2009 album Pictures from Home, produced by the late Mark Linkous aka Sparklehorse.
Recorded at Sound of Music Studios in Richmond, Virginia over the summer of 2012, Anniversary includes 11 original songs, written and performed by Martin and produced by multi-instumentalist Alan Weatherhead (Sparklehorse, Cracker, Nina Persson). Weatherhead contributes various accompaniments with additional appearances by Matt and Melissa Linkous (Rabbit).
"Anniversary is the product of two years of writing and a widespread search for the right producer and studio to bring these songs to their full creative potential,” Martin says. “These are hymns of grief, full-on rock-spells against enemies of mother nature and what some would consider love songs."
