The black and endless sky

Good morning, Ms. Maki
Kate Maki has a unique non-musical résumé. According to Wikipedia, she has a degree in neuroscience, and her press materials say that she’s a “grade school teacher by day, songwriter by night.” I’m not quite sure how a neuroscientist becomes a grade school teacher, nor how a grade school teacher becomes a songwriter, but in any case—her songs are an awesomely authentic take on classic folk.

With its bare-bones recording style and gorgeous home-spun harmonies, her song “Lose My Mind” could easily pass for a traditional folk standard. This is from her new album, Moonshine.

Thanks to The Broken Speaker for the stream.
