The headline greeting visitors to Welsh multi-instrumentalist Gwenifer Raymond's website describes the artist as a "Guitar Convincer. Banjo Thumper. American Primitive Musician." Based in Brighton, England, Raymond's driving, acoustic fingerstyle playing descends from techniques developed by John Fahey, Mississippi John Hurt, Skip James, and Roscoe Holcomb. Her 2018 debut single, "Deep Sea Diver"/"Bleeding Finger Blues," wove together a hypnotic amalgam of bluegrass, acoustic blues, and mysterious Americana. New York's Tompkins Square label issued her debut album You Never Were Much of a Dancer to international acclaim. For her second album, Raymond took inspiration from the eldritch Welsh countryside, as well as from her homeland's tradition of folk horror. Recorded and mixed in a small, makeshift studio in a basement flat in Brighton, Strange Lights Over Garth Mountain appeared in November 2020 on Tompkins Square. —Thom Jurek (Allmusic)
