“A guitar. A voice. Sometimes that’s all a musician needs to lift the listener to a higher place. Smart lyrics help, too, and Robin Bacior has them.” – Dave Riedel, CBS News
“Carefully woven folk sound and tender vocals, showing that sometimes a quiet power is all you really need.” – Nylon

LORAIN plays woozy American music. Singer Erik Emanuelson’s expressive tenor, which recalls ghosts of Nashville Skyline era Dylan and the late Jason Molina, floats over lush textures and an understated groove.
