Since leaving her childhood home in Alabama, Crutchfield has drifted between New York and Philadelphia but chose to return to Alabama to write her first two albums: American Weekend, her debut filled with powerful lo-fi acoustic tracks full of lament, and Cerulean Salt, a more developed and solid narrative about growing up. Both are representations of a youthful struggle with unresolved issues and unrequited feelings.

Her latest record, Ivy Tripp, drifts confidently from these previous albums and brings forth a more informed and powerful recognition of where Crutchfield has found herself. The lament and grieving for her youth seem to have been replaced with control and sheer self-honesty.

With Crutchfield’s vocals in full bloom, we are given a record that feels more emphatic and pronounced.
