Potter’s Daughter: This Winter Child (single)

We don’t often feature single track releases here on SoT unless they happen to be of the full album, forty minute-plus variety. However, when something as atmospherically poised and shimmeringly beautiful as The Winter’s Child from NYC’s Potter’s Daughter arrives in your hands, you simply have to make an exception.

Comprising classical and contemporary pianist and singer Dyanne Potter Voegtlin, bassist/guitarist Ian C Voegtlin and percussionist/producer Amit Chatterjee, the trio have with this standalone cut crafted a shivering shimmer that paints pictures of frosty, misty mornings and frigid isolation. Potter’s voice is clear, fragile, yet bold and strong, leading from the front as her piano strikes into the heart, whether through suggestive little trinkets of sound or forceful stabs. With the percussion unobtrusive but cutting and the guitar work piercing yet subtle the whole becomes even bigger than the sumptuous parts used to create it.

In an era where atmospheric prog doesn’t always quite deliver everything it’s cracked up to be, that outfits like Potter’s Daughter can be coming up with vital sounds like these, while remaining reasonably unnoticed, verges on flabbergasting. Let’s un-flabb our gast and get this lot in the spotlight.
