Epic, traffic-stopping and an exorcism of emotion are just some of the phrases used to describe the songs and ability of Seattle musician Jesy Fortino. Fortino records under the moniker Tiny Vipers. Her sophomore album, Life On Earth, released by Sub Pop Records this past July, is a beautiful search for truth containing songs powerful enough to transcend the simple moniker of "folk music." Sparse sounds created by one woman and one guitar, or piano, are a dime a dozen, so when a performer can develop so much with so little, it raises a lot of eyebrows and creates excitement. Fortino creates songs and uses space in a style that is reminiscent of José González. Themes of love and loss, then and now, shadow and illumination, despair and hope permeate throughout her lyrics. Her songs are powerful and bold, but filled with vulnerability and fragility. At such a young age, 26, she'll be creating excitement for a long time to come.moreless
