Hermitess

 
 

The Hermitess is the solo project of songwriter and harpist Jennifer Crighton, who comes by way of various other musical incarnations, including The Consonant C and Devonian Gardens. Stripping back the performance to a harp and a circle of women's voices, the Hermitess is an inquisitive, contrary, wounded, wise and ever dreaming incantation

 

Live Performances feature a changing cast of characters that may include:

Shara Raska, Julia Gunst, Randee-Lee Ross, Erin Rudling, Aimee-Jo Benoit, Richard Gallant, Melissa McWilliams, Jolene Toner, Laura Reid, Melyssa Nielsen, Eric Hamlin, Danny Vescarelli, and others...

It’s a sonic disruption to almost anything else you’ve ever heard, and the whole thing unfolds like a secret garden coming to life after a long, harsh winter, cracking through the Earth bloom by bloom, branch by branch, song by song.

- CBC MUSIC

an album of appropriately desolation-evoking, nature-inspired songs for her debut as Hermitess. Akin to the austere spookiness of Chelsea Wolfe or the more subdued moments of Myrkur, Crighton creates her haunted, distant atmospheres by blending her voice with her harp, sometimes cloaked in waves of distortion
