Elyse Weinberg 2009

October 10, 2011

_
Artist: Elyse Weinberg (AKA Cori Bishop)

Release: In My Own Sweet Time
Year: 2009
Genre: Folk, Alternative Folk
Born: Chatham Ontario Canada
Website: here.
Preview or buy the Album: here.

Track Listing:
1. Anybody Out There?
2. Break It Wide Open
3. Hey My Baby
4. Remind Me
5. Operator
6. Darlin’
7. The Shining One
8. Sleepwalker
9. Nothin’s Gonna Change
10. All Is Well

Produced by Cori Bishop & John Swinnerton at Sonic Sojourns, Ashland, Oregon.

Notes:
The Holy Grail. That’s how Andrew Rieger of Elf Power described the moment in 1999 when he first listened to Elyse’s long forgotten 1968 self-titled release. Back in the late ’60’s, the album received quite a bit of attention – so much so that Elyse appeared on Johnny Carson’s Tonight Show, in Newsweek and the L.A. Free Press, and at Shaffer Music Festival in NYC. She continued to write and record for Asylum Records. Cut to 30 years later when Rieger fell so much in love with her debut album that he contacted Elyse (now going by the name Cori Bishop and living in Ashland, Ore.).

The rest is history – Orange Twin rereleased the self-titled debut, along with two other of her songs from that era, one of which, “Houses,” features Neil Young wielding his distinctively ripping guitar sound. Since, Elyse’s story has become something of a rock legend – after the rerelease her album received massive amount of positive feedback in the press, and she was mentioned in Magnet, Time Out NY, Aquarium Drunkard, Creative Loafing (amongst others). Perhaps the most flattering result was two extremely successful indie bands, Vetiver and Dinosaur Jr. decided to cover “Houses” in the aftermath of the release.

Now, after playing extensively over the past few years, which included a date at Montreal Pop Festival in 2008, Elyse has recorded a new album for the first time since the late ’60’s – the aptly titled “In My Own Sweet Time.” Elyse’s voice is still captivating – at once sweet and melodic, while also sounding edgy and ragged, brimming with a sense of hope and liberation. As Andrew Rieger said, it’s scary and magical stuff, which is particularly captured in the album’s first single “Anybody Out There?”
