Gwyneth Moreland’s gift for open-hearted storytelling is perfectly suited to the modern art of folk music. Her songs flow with a graceful simplicity infused with the ambience of her home perched in the majestic redwoods and fog of the Mendocino Coast. Her remarkable range and supple tones are the result both of an exceptional talent and of years of experience as a vocalist. Ceilings, Floors, and Open Doors, her latest full-length album, was recorded live, captured in the moment with minimal production. The auspicious sounds of birds and breezes and the sense of space provided an expansive backdrop for Moreland’s storytelling. Gwyneth describes her music as folk with jazz influences. The jazz influences began to seep in when she started playing with bassist / producer David Hayes. Blending veteran Hayes’s deep experience and melodic playing with Gwyneth’s lyrically rich songs and unique vocal performances creates nuances that highlight the musical subtleties, giving each song color and breadth.
