2017 release. Melodic and mighty, Snake Handler is a battle cry from a songwriter who's unafraid to dive back into her past - no matter how dark it may be - to find closure. It's an album about final chapters and new beginnings. About violence, resolution, and next steps. It's India Ramey: unfiltered, unrestrained, and wholly engaging. Inspired by the warm sonics of Jason Isbell's Southeastern and the big-voiced bombast of Neko Case's Furnace Room Lullabies, Snake Handler was recorded in six days with producer Mark Petaccia. Ringing guitars, violin, atmospheric organ, and percussive train beats all swirl together, leaving room for Ramey's voice - an instrument punctuated by the light drawl of her hometown and the quick tremolo of her vibrato - to swoon, swagger, and sparkle.
