'Not even Happiness' could well be the most beautiful folk record of 2017. American singer-songwriter Julie Byrne's whispering voice reminds us of Joni Mitchell and Cat Power, her finger picking guitar technique of Nick Drake. Her songs raise a dreamy melancholic atmosphere. Pitchfork, Humo, Knack Focus and De Morgen have been keeping an eye on byrne for a while now, about time you discovered this talented young woman as well!
