Sera Cahoone is a long way from home. Growing up the daughter of a dynamite salesman in the Colorado foothills, she got her start on the drums at 11. A year later, her skills had become so promising, her mom started taking her to dive bars to sit in with the scruffy old bluesmen. By the time she even picked up a guitar, she had been so shaped by these things – the dynamite, the blues, ... Read more in Amazon's Sera Cahoone Store

Editorial Reviews

Deer Creek Canyon, Sera Cahoone's third solo album, sees her ruminating on the gravitational pull of home. Titled for the Colorado canyon where she came of age, Deer Creek Canyon was recorded in 2012 at Bear Creek Studio in Woodinville, Wash., and co-produced by Sera and Thom Monahan (Devendra Banhart, Vetiver). Since migrating to Seattle in 1998, Sera has played with Carissa's Weird, Band of Horses, Betsy Olson, and singer-songwriter Patrick Park. She released her solo debut in 2006, and her widely acclaimed SubPop debut Only as the Day Is Long in 2008.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another Fantastic Album October 10, 2012
Format:MP3 Music
Sera Cahoone is one of the few artists who has introspective, emotionally open lyrics that do not turn me off. I suspect this is due to the fact that she is an amazing composer. Her songs are earthy, warm, original and extremely well laid out. I love this album, maybe not as much as only as the day is long, but that might be because I haven't heard it as much. Quite a few gems here.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful! October 4, 2012
Format:Audio CD
As a big fan of Sera Cahoone's first two records, I was surprised to find I love this one even more. Strong vocals, steel, strings, banjo. It is authentic. It is not cheesy. It is simply beautiful.

4.0 out of 5 stars Love it! Love it! Love it! October 3, 2012
Format:Audio CD
Sera has managed to steal my heart for the third time. I purchased her last two CD's. If you have read my previous review of "Only As The Day Is Long" I stated that I saw a picture of Sera in the Folio Weekly in Jacksonville, FL and thought that she look like she sings the songs that I will like so I bought her CD. I was overjoyed then and I am now. Her singing and music is so beautiful to me. Melodious, sweet, laid back, and especially, pure. I love the way a singular instrument will weave through the harmonies. Sometimes it's the violin, sometimes the banjo, sometimes the pedal steel. All on the background of such haunting, smooth, and heart-swelling melodies. It is so simple and so lovely. And when I hear her voice, it is so honest and from the heart. Just pure. The only reason I gave it four stars is because of of a couple things: One. That...I don't know what you call it but it makes her sound like she is in a tunnel. I think it is called Reverb. It takes away from the purity of the songs I think. I don't know if it is needed at all or that it's too much reverb. I am not a musician but I listen well. And...well, since I get the impression of her singing in Deer Creek Canyon...I think it's too big to reflect sounds like that. Another thing is the CD cover picture. I like the color and mood of the shot but not her sitting there looking at the camera. I am confused on what to look at. I can't see Sera "in" Deer Creek Canyon because she either takes my full attention OR the background takes it. They seem to be separate. Maybe if she was sitting down (I'm going to go out on a limb and say she is posing in Deer Creek Canyon) with her face towards the camera but eyes focused on something in the Canyon with the camera focused on her profile and the object of her gaze...Well, that's just my opinion.

4.0 out of 5 stars Bluesy and Introspective Alt-Country September 27, 2012
Format:Audio CD
Sera Cahoone, a member of Seattle's SubPop record label, creates music that feels like an old house. The music on DEER CREEK CANYON is comfortable - it's not ostentatious or showing, but it's well-crafted and warm. This record sticks to typical instruments, usually adhering to acoustic guitar, (slight amounts of) bass, and drums. These songs feel lived-in but not over-worn. There's something safe about the way Cahoone's music feel -- not "safe" in a predictable way, but "safe" in a way that everything feels right where it should be.

Most of the music on DEER CREEK CANYON is a blend of indie-sensibilities and Western United States country, but all of this is through Cahoone's meticulous songcrafting. The album's lead single "Naked" might be a good starting point for anyone new to the singer/songwriter; it's an accessible song with a strong melody that's hard not to sing along with. Cahoone's greatest sensibilities converge with "One to Blame," a bluesy, heartbreaking ballad that feels simply perfect in its execution. The chord changes matched with Cahoone's delivery make it one of the best songs on the album.

I wasn't taken by some of the more upbeat tracks here ("Nervous Wreck," for example,) but when Cahoone slows down, she's magnetic. Despite a few week points, DEER CREEK CANYON is certainly worth your time if you enjoy folk, country, or just female-centric adult contemporary. I haven't gotten around to listening to her previous two albums, but if DEER CREEK CANYON is any indication, I've been missing out. Essential tracks for sampling/download: "Naked," "Deer Creek Canyon," and "One to Blame."

3.0 out of 5 stars Sera is better in a live performance than on CD September 2, 2013
Format:Audio CD
I love her music but something is missing in her CD's vs. live performances. The studio performances are over sound engineered and her wonderful voice gets lost in the mixing. I listen to her NPR Tiny Desk Concert and KEXP performances all the time on YouTube and her Couch Song video is great. But I can pass on this and her last CD "only as the day is long" in which the drummer drowns out Sera and she sounds like she's singing from the studio parking lot. Poor production for an extremely talented performer. Sera all you need is your lyrics, voice, and a guitar.

4.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant May 4, 2014

Brilliant. Her live sets are better (5 stars), but the album is close to perfect at 4 stars. Well played, indeed.

5.0 out of 5 stars Remarkable September 11, 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I’m not at all into country music but I consider this to be quite crossover. Country and bluegrass influences are apparent in Sera’s music but it’s the vocal itself that contains all the surprise. In her singing are unexpected layers of mood and depth that make her music transcend all stylistic boundaries.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazed once again. May 8, 2013
I was an instant fan when I first heard her voice. Deer Creek Canyon delivered what I expected and more.
Her first two albums were great, and DCC seems to step it up a notch with a lot more melody and great lyrics that seem a bit more personal and mature. From "Worry all your life","Naked", and "Every Little Word" to "Here with me", it was all music to my ears, amazing music that is!

5.0 out of 5 stars beautiful voice and great album
Cahoone's voice is dreamy, soulful, and crisp. Her lyrics expose our existential angst and yearning for deep meaning, and yet, there's peace/serenity inbetween those lines. Read more
