"Baiman’s work is right at home with the several masterpieces of post-modern art set to release this year in roots music."
– American Standard Time
Shame, the debut full-length album from Rachel Baiman, is a work of striking importance from a fresh voice that is bound to reach many ears in the years to come.
On the album’s ten tracks, Baiman commands attention with songwriting prowess and a depth of presence well beyond her 27 years.
Produced by Andrew Marlin of Mandolin Orange, the lush and varied musical texture heard on Shame is a departure from Baiman’s previous stripped-down duo work with 10 String Symphony. Baiman’s vocals are arresting throughout; simultaneously rich and subdued, her husky tone and unaffected delivery pair beautifully with the record’s stew of folk, alt country, and gospel sounds.
