“Everywhere I Used To Be”
Mariel Buckley is a singer songwriter of tremendous depth and sensitivity. The Canadian-born musician’s songs are confessional and observational and they are rife with honesty, wisdom and vulnerability. Her new album Everywhere I Used To Be is a stirring collection that’s filled with nuance and moody undertones. Thanks to the production of Marcus Paquin, who has worked with Arcade Fire and The National this is an album that’s loaded with texture—it’s country music played through layers of haunting and undulating fathoms and the result is one of the biggest surprises of 2022. This album is an instant classic that brings to mind Daniel Lanois’ work on Emmylou Harris’s Wrecking Ball. It’s resonate and deeply affecting work.
