"Sumptuous in its arrangement and instrumentation, The Lies the Poets Tell is high-production contemporary folk ... every track counts, and that’s a rarity we’re thrilled to welcome. Overall, it's a gorgeous, intensely intimate translation of favorite songs and deep cuts from a veritable who’s who of the songwriter’s songwriter scene, including duets with the late great Jimmy LaFave, Mark Erelli, Ellis Paul, and Richard Shindell on a Richard Shindell song. Look for it in our Best of 2018, and find it as soon as you can."
