Burnside Album Details
Tivel, Anna, Small Believer
For Portland, Oregon songwriter Anna Tivel, the open road is more than a way to bring her songs to new places, it's also a near-endless source of stories. On her new album, Small Believer, Tivel taps into the stories she hears every night, after every show. To make Small Believer, Anna Tivel drew her close community of friends and collaborators in Portland, starting with Austin Nevins (Josh Ritter, Della Mae), who produced the album. Nevins shared a deep love for the kind of quiet stories Tivel loves to tell. Nevins brought together Portland collaborators to make the understated accompaniment that pervades the album: slow-driving fiddles, accordions, electric guitars moving beneath and supporting Tivel’s soft words.
