"Autumn Shade is the nom de plume of Jes Lenee, a stunning young songstress brimming with unbridled talent. Armed with a satchel full of pensively beautiful tunes, Lenee possesses a voice as pristine as any your ears will have heard in this lifetime. Ezra Moon is a journey into a unique sepia-toned microcosm, one that intertwines folk, chamber music, psychedelia, avant-rock and indie singer/songwriter. Opening with the wispy 'Sparrow,' a delicate piano interlude softly fluttering in and out of focus like a foggy memory, the misty landscape spills into 'Home,' a folk-inspired lament driven by acoustic strumming and Jes Lenee's yearning vocals. Colored by additional instrumentation of violin, hammer dulcimer and percussion, and a healthy penchant for sonic experimentation, the narcotic, detached feel of Ezra Moon is reminiscent of albums by the female artists that helped define the 4AD sound. Jes Lenee's classical roots and compositional sense invoke the avant-chamber feel of Rachel's, if they were enveloped in the hazy folk atmosphere that Marissa Nadler resides in. Ezra Moon is an entrancing debut, inaugurating Autumn Shade into the contemporary folk scene with an understatedly personal and cinematic sound."
