“The depth and control of her voice betray her classical vocal training, but like kindred spirit Shara Nova, Connery chooses a more straightforward sound that suits the emotional content of her work.” —John Schaefer/New Sounds
“…dreamy art pop with the sensitivity and nuance of classical music.” —Second Inversion
“HAUNTING, BJORK-LIKE VOCALS” — SF Classical Voice
“EXPERTLY DRAWING UPON A WIDE SWATH OF APPROACHES—BRITISH FOLK, MADRIGAL, ART ROCK” — Bandcamp Daily
Praised for her unique vocals and dreamy, genre-defying music, Bay Area troubadour Majel Connery is making her Sacramento debut in December!
Her music has been called “thoroughly Schubertian” by the Wall Street Journal, and her voice “crystalline” by the Chicago Reader. Most recently, Connery wrote songs about porn, periods, and sad fish for five episodes of Radiolab’s “Gonads” series. She is currently touring her debut EP, Anything Chartreuse.
She appears most frequently as a solo artist and with composer collective Oracle Hysterical, with whom she has released two albums: Hecuba (2017, National Sawdust Tracks) and Passionate Pilgrim (2016, National Sawdust Tracks). Her solo work includes her debut electronic EP, Anything Chartreuse, a book of vocoder sonnets (May 2019) and Orphea, a Baroque-rock retelling of L’Orfeo arranged by Doug Balliett.
