Introspective, pensive, and contemplative are a few of the adjectives that come to mind when describing Bare Bones, Madeleine Peyroux's third album for Rounder. But don't be fooled by the title, the music is not 'stripped to the bone', quite the contrary. The music is lush, like falling into a down comforter, enveloping the senses with warmth.
Bare Bones marks Madeleine's first album of all original material, revealing a songwriter who is fully coming into her own. Well crafted, thoughtful and deeply satisfying songs from the heart dealing with loss, the big questions in life and ultimately the possibility that hope does spring eternal.
