Lover to Jeff Buckley at the time of his death, and sometime collaborator with Rufus Wainwright and Antony Hegarty, Joan Wasser has made some damn affecting piano ballads on her earlier albums.
Text Christopher Ujine Ong
But this time round, her music’s more plush and rounded with saxophones, guitars and moogs, with Joan herself sounding more affirmed and sublime than ever before. Just be grateful for such an artist with depth and plumb into the triumph that is The Deep Field.
