What People Are Saying

"On their latest album, Lean Into the Wind, Americana rockers Miss Shevaughn and Yuma Wray go all Flying Burrito Brothers with a SoCal-influenced set of new songs. [The track] “Coyote” tells you everything you need to know about what this super fine band of players has up their sleeves this go-around. Killer harmonies, warm countryesque textures, and the winsome voice of Miss Shevaughn, who channels her very own Emmylou Harris on this gorgeous tune." - POPMATTERS

“Achingly beautiful folk blues.” - Steve Wildsmith/ THE DAILY TIMES

“Think back on the material Daniel Lanois produced for Emmylou Harris - this music is by turns ethereal, haunting, lonely, ferocious and bluesy, painting American landscapes in pure black and white. The harmonies are smooth and go places you wouldn't normally expect. Frisby’s alto has a world-weary and strongly emotional feel. She is, to be sure, a great singer.” - CONNECT SAVANNAH

“Ever since I have gotten my ears on this excellent work of Americana and folk, I haven't been able to stop listening. A voice that captivates, Miss Shevaughn has to be one of the most passionate vocalists I've heard. Add in the mysterious Yuma Wray and his magical guitar skills, these two seem to be the perfect mix for creating music that has the power to make the burliest of men weep.” - THE RECORD STACHE

“A fifteen song collection of Americana music, We’re From Here seamlessly jumps from sparse folk tunes to fuzzy guitar filled garage rock. Miss Shevaughn’s haunting vocals weave through the sonic landscape provided by Yuma Wray, and when it is his time to sing the contrast is powerful. Their music is more than just songs, each tune is a story and as story tellers it is up to Miss Shevaughn & Yuma Wray to bring these tales to life.” - Chris Martin / ATLANTA EXAMINER

“We're From Here is a stunning and audacious debut - this record sounds like they've made an Oscar winning movie based on the Great American Novel. Miss Shevaughn joins Emmylou Harris and KD Lang in the realm of the great female American storytellers. She is a force of nature, and Yuma Wray provides the perfect home in which to raise her stories. Forget about genres and categories, this is great music.” – Tony Conley / ROCK GUITAR DAILY

“ Miss Shevaughn & Yuma Wray’s We’re From Here is a classic American road trip story, with the duo expanding its sound from sparse folk balladry to psychedelic swamp stomp.” - SUN JOURNAL

“We're From Here, the new album from Miss Shevaughn and Yuma Wray, is a folk-drenched look into questions of contentment, laments over new beginnings, and self-acceptance, with Miss Shevaughn sounding an awful lot like Joni Mitchell as she tells her passionate tales.” - CHARLESTON CITY PAPER

“Their blend of country, folk, rock, and blues is a thing of beauty.” – MUSIC. DEFINED.

“Miss Shevaughn and Yuma Wray’s 2011 was spent on the road living out of their Honda Element, searching out their sound and cataloging their experiences and thoughts. Their time on the road was not wasted as the result is Americana personified – an amalgamation of elemental roots music into songs of real substance a soundtrack for a journey on the rural routes and black tops.” - BEAT SURRENDER

“Warm heart and fuzzed out soul come together on Miss Shevaughn & Yuma Wray’s new album We're From Here." - JESTER JAY MUSIC

“Featuring an eclectic mix of instruments including – but not limited to – guitar, banjo, mandolin, percussion, glockenspiel and lap steel, this duo has a bigger sound than most listeners dare to imagine. Strength in voice and instrumental ability drives their songwriting excellence.” - THE VERMONT CYNIC

“Unique, honest and compelling storytelling.” - YOUNG MANHATTANITE

"We're From Here" is one of those debut albums that you hear for the first time, scratch your head, smile, and then listen to again. It's a 'did I just hear what I thought I heard?' moment - brilliance is like that. Sometimes it takes you a minute to realize that you're in it's presence." - Tony Conley, Rock Guitar Daily, July 2012

"If you believe popular lore, Miss Shevaughn & Yuma Wray spent last year on the road, living in their Honda Element and finding their way to the heart of their American music. On September 11th, the duo will take the wrapper off "We’re From Here", and the whole world will get to judge for themselves whether their quest was successful, Now I know that a single song isn’t a sample size with any statistical significance, but I’d say based on the incredibly beautiful "The River Made Me Do It", these two can chalk up 2011 as a year well spent." - My Old Kentucky Blog, June 2012

"A Fool & Her Heart" is the rare track that features an unforgettable vocal performance and enough authenticity to make sure you don't question where that voice came from. . . This isn't just a good song. In fact, it isn't even just a great song. It's a nearly perfect song that suggests actual perfection might not be far from the duo's grasp. 2012 could be a big year for these two. Here's hoping there's a lot more from where this song came from.” – Frederick News Post Dec. 2011

“Opening act Miss Shevaughn and Yuma Wray are honest-to-goodness some of the most charming and alarmingly great musicians I've seen live... Miss Shevaughn has one of the most beautiful and powerful voices I've heard from a female vocalist."
Brightest Young Things Feb. 2011

“Americana” is not a lightly attributed category. They have seen the U.S. and they sing about it with heartfelt soul and just the right amount of indie charisma. There’s nothing stuffy or snobby about their music. It clearly shines through as honest and poetic…. Bottom line: If you like tales of woe, Americana, timeless songs with an indie twist, what are you waiting for?”
