I got Ryn Weaver’s The Fool album on a whim, while browsing my Amazon Music app. It can be a good place to discover new music, if you’re patient enough to go through stuff like New Music and Recommended For You, sometimes even $5 Albums. I got lucky when I bought this one.

Ryn Weaver has an interesting style and beautiful voice. Both are showcased in this video Ryn Weaver — The Fool ( Acoustic) . I glanced over some reviews that compared her to Heather Nova and Florence Welch of Florence + the Machine. I have to agree. She has that vibrato thing going too, though in a unique way.

This video is also cool because of the setting. It looks like an empty pool, which makes for unusual acoustics…pristine and expansive at once.

I like the album, but find some of it more produced than I typically care for, at times coming off as almost experimental. I wish I had an entire album of these unique acoustic versions. I see that there are more than one video on YouTube recorded in the same place, so I’ll have to dip into them more when I have a chance. No pun intended, believe it or not!
