  • Description

    Gilkyson's music, in the classic folk music tradition, has always offered a vivid reflection of the times we live in. 'Secularia', the long-awaited followup to 'Nocturne Diaries', is a collection of spiritually charged songs that do not fit within the parameters of traditional religious beliefs, challenging us to embrace a more inclusive perspective, to respect all life and to be accountable for our actions in these divisive times.

    The album features a stunning performance with the internationally acclaimed Tosca String Quartet, (David Byrne, Bob Schneider), vocal cameos by Shawn Colvin and gospel singer Sam Butler, and a duet with her friend, the late Jimmy LaFave, as well as two songs adapted from poetry written by her grandmother, Phoebe Hunter Gilkyson, co-written with Eliza's father, folksinger Terry Gilkyson. Recorded with what she calls a "spare urban folk approach," the album features songs of grief, gratitude and wonder.

    As always,she's assembled a group of some of Austin's finest players to back her in the studio: Chris Maresh (Eric Johnson), Warren Hood, Kym Warner (The Green Cards), Andre Moran, Mike Hardwick (Jon Dee Graham, Charlie Sexton), Betty Soo and more.

    Description

    "“Considering she’s recorded since the ‘60s, it’s a mite surprising that Gilkyson is just now entering her performing prime.� —UNCUT

    “Like the master writer she is, Gilkyson cuts through the jungle of posturing leftist verbiage and conservative spin…She packs a political punch that is as entertaining and blue-collar as the work of Woody Guthrie� —Houston Press

    “Few folk singers, even those from the original folk revival, have been able to combine social consciousness with musicality as well as Eliza Gilkyson. She merges strong songwriting talent with commanding vocals to create music that has immediate appeal as well as lasting intellectual impact.� —Vintage Guitar
