Editorial Reviews

2013 album from the Brooklyn-based singer/songwriter. Fourth Corner was recorded in New York with producer/keyboardist Thomas Bartlett (AKA Doveman, who's also worked with Glen Hansard, Antony and the Johnsons, Grizzly Bear and the National), engineer Pat Dillett and with string arrangements by Rob Moose (Antony, Bon Iver). Whitley burst into public consciousness in 2011 as the lead singer of Black Dub, super-producer Daniel Lanois' (U2, Bob Dylan) project, blowing people away with a voice and presence beyond her now-25 years. Whitley has become one of the most talked about new artists of 2013.

5.0 out of 5 stars Destined for Greatness January 31, 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Trixie Whitley performed at a club in my city a short while ago. Oh, my goodness. After many years of being a musician myself, in and out of clubs and studios in L.A., Portland, San Francisco, and all points in between, I've seen them come and seen them go. Here is an artist of uncommon depth, soul, commitment, and emotion.
Yes, yes, she's the daughter of the marvelous, mysterious, lamentably lost too early Chris Whitley. If anyone has ever embraced and cultivated the gifts available in inheritance, it is this young woman. She is simply stupendous, melding the genres of Soul, R&B, Rock, and her own family legacy of deep expression and direct dancing with the muse.
Inspiring, hair-raising, exuberant, uncompromising in her vision, she is a multi-instrumentalist with an extraordinary voice, and her talents have already merited her inclusion with the likes of Daniel Lanois, Brian Blade, and Daryl Jones....and this, four years ago, when she was only 21 years old.
Don't delay. Buy this CD, and her earlier EPs. A short while from now, you will say to your friends, "I was hip to her before she was famous, and you could still see her in smaller venues."
Check out her website, and watch the videos for "I'd Rather Go Blind," and "A Thousand Thieves" if you doubt my enthusiasm.
Here is a singular, heartfelt, inspiring new talent that will repay your attention beyond any expectations.

5.0 out of 5 stars She's no weakly child... March 16, 2013
By wren
Format:Audio CD
Easily the best CD of 2013 and I'm writing this in March. Songwriting: stunning, passionate. And when have we heard a voice this beautiful since Jeff Buckley? Musically the album is impeccable: guitar, violin, piano create a unique blend of depth and gritty minimalism. Trixie is at the threshold of her career. May she have the strength to pursue her own path and not give in to the grim reaper that is today's Music Biz. The strongest songs here are "Silent Rebel, Pt. 2", "Hotel No Name", and "Fourth Corner" - but every track has its own haunting ambiance that remains with the listener for days. I hope Trixie Whitley's resolve to explore authentic, soulful music only grows stronger.

5.0 out of 5 stars This is what I've been waiting for January 29, 2013
By Bassnw
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
Trixie Whitley has created the album I'm been searching for ever since her fathers magnificent "Living with the Law". Soaring, textured, each song takes turns - lyrically and melodically - that are as unexpected as they are perfect.

In this age of personality driven formulaic reverb drenched dreck, this album stands as a picture of what art can be, and a promise of what's to come. Thanks Trixie, much appreciated.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great album, fantastic artist. May 19, 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This is Trixie Whitley's first full length album and it is a keeper. She is such a stunning artist, no one else sounds like her. She has a raw, intense, controlled power that is not often seen in young artists. I can't get enough of her.

5.0 out of 5 stars Style. Makes this great. April 13, 2013
By S & J
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
Never had heard of Trixie, so after listening to the songs sample cuts, reading other's reviews and doing the samples again I decided to download. I have been pleasantly surprised by just what a different style she has pushed forward. It's a stretch for me to make any comparisons to others, because her music differs so much from others, but is truly captivating and is obviously liked by most others willing to write about it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great album! Trixie hits one out of the park. April 5, 2013
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
This is a really, really good album. Fight the urge to compare it to the Black Dub album - that is a different band. This is Trixie solo, and it should be judged on its own merits... and those are many. Amazing depth, funk, and soul. It's hard to write about a "vibe", but this album has got one - a big one - and its way cool.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Mature Songwriter and a Passionate Vocalist April 12, 2014
Format:Audio CD
A strong performance, Whitley’s vocals are at the forefront throughout the album, superb. Ms. Whitley, 25, is the daughter of Chris Whitley, the hard driving Texas bluesman who died in 2005. Talent definitely runs in the family.

"Whitley creates a dark, nocturnal atmosphere, as if Fourth Corner was set during the wee hours at some smoky basement lounge." Fourth Corner is chocked full of weighty lyrical content and deeply powerful arrangements.

"Her primary collaborators on this self-penned 11-song set are producer/keyboardist Thomas Bartlett (aka Doveman), and engineer Pat Dillett - both have lengthy credit sheets. There are a handful of other guests, including drummer Ben Perowski and Black Dub bassist Daryl Johnson." Trixie's bluesy guitar playing throughout is strong and original.

The stirring anthem “Breath You In My Dreams” and ballad “Pieces" showcase the raw beauty of her Trixie's singing. “Hotel No Name” has a fuzzed out echoing, roaring guitar.The rousing tempo on “Gradual Return” is an upbeat moment on the album in contrast to the sombre mood throughout this release.

Most of Whitley's dramatic songs ride choppy patterns of distorted guitars, "played and layered by Ms. Whitley, that circle and seethe until she’s sung all she needs to say."

Her pipes are huge, however her singing approach is oh so subtle. When listening closely you can feel the power. Whitley is firmly grounded in roots traditions, vintage soul, R&B, blues, and rock.

Thanks Gaylen, for pointing me in the direction of this release, great music buddy. This one's a keeper.

2.0 out of 5 stars Good music, bad recording
I liked the music, but the recording was not good, and the surface noise was unacceptable.

I hope Ms. Whitley has many more recording that are better.
