Audra Connolly, "Dear Friend"

Audra Connolly
Dear Friend

There is a quote from once-indie band Rilo Kiley about folk singers that I continuously thought about while I listened to Audra Connolly's newest album, Dear Friend: “Folk singers sing songs for the working, baby. We're just inspiration for all those doctors and lawyers.” Connolly is pure folk, at its best; she's entertainment in the form of soft sounds and friendly words.
