"a voice of rare elegance"
Observer
"[Byrne] conjures the sensation of nature’s life-affirming intimacy and wonder. Some writers will never cease in their attempts to represent the earth’s sublimity with similes and metaphors, but Byrne is confident that this beauty can speak for itself"

American wanderer Julie Byrne’s second album, Not Even Happiness, vividly archives what would have otherwise been lost to the road – bustling roadside diners, the stars over the high desert, the aching weariness of change, the wildflowers of the California coast, as well as the unsolvable mysteries of love. A more confident beast than her 2014 debut, Rooms With Walls And Windows, adding atmospheric instrumentation and electronic flourishes to Byrne’s unusual guitar tuning and finger-picked melodies, moving the songs from the front porch into subtle anthem.
