In life and music, Emma Tricca is an explorer. Just as ?Davey Graham set sail for Morocco and ?Vashti Bunyan for the Outer Hebrides in search of their elusive ?muse, Rome-raised singer-songwriter Tricca has journeyed to London, New York, Texas, and further afield to seek the heart of her own music. Tricca's new album St Peter -- created with a cast of supporting artists including global icon ?Judy Collins, ?Sonic Youth's ?Steve Shelley, and Dream Syndicate guitarist Jason Victor -- takes a bracing plunge into the unknown, leaving the folksinger tag far behind with a rolling collection of reverie-inducing raw diamonds. Tricca released her first melancholic masterpiece, 2009's crystalline long-player Minor White on Bird Records (BMS 024CD), an offshoot of Finders Keepers run by husband and wife team ?Jane Weaver and ?Andy Votel. Five years later Tricca released Relic (2014), an album even more poised and precise than its predecessor. A collaboration with longtime friend and guitar wizard Jason McNiff led to 2017's sparkling Southern Star EP (EDDA 043CD/LP), while a song on the soundtrack of Patrick Stewart-starring US indie film Match (2014) raised her profile. Recorded near-live at Echo Canyon West in Hoboken, St Peter draws on crunchy country rock, homespun psychedelia, Morricone soundtracks, New York underground grit, and English folk grandeur to weave a wholly unique and surprising spell. More musical guests soon joined the party -- gruff songwriting hero ?Howe Gelb put in a brief cameo, while Tricca was able to live out a childhood fantasy by inviting ?Judy Collins to appear on the album's penultimate cut, "Solomon Said". The album is so loaded with texture that is almost feels tangible; a rare record that feels precise and pristine in its executions but never sterile or lifeless. Electric guitars fizz away like a controlled electricity, Tricca's guitar playing flows gracefully at the core with her vocals existing in the perfect state between slight rasp and caramel-smoothness. Shelley's drumming and percussion gives a steady heartbeat to the record which is further brought to life by a variety of deft instrumentation, including piano, bass, cello, violin, glockenspiel, and of course the variety of guest backing vocalists. Whilst St Peter's deep-seated roots can perhaps be traced to traditional folk music, its finished existence feels far from such a thing -- its ever-flowing essence skipping through genres, tones, paces and rhythms with a gliding grace.
