Nominally rooted in folk and occasionally recalling PJ Harvey's knack for spare, unsettling underwater lullabies, Halstead doesn't quite exist in any specific category; despite some tension-racked drum loops, the music doesn't rock, yet it never succumbs to the soft strumming of folk. She, like Neko Case before her, mines allegories and fables for her songs, but Halstead isn't a cyclone. She floats and observes, almost achieving a spectral presence on her own songs. Certainly, her keen, powerful voice is a gateway into Raised by Wolves, but the music, for as many questions as it raises, is immediate. It's a vivid dream world and one that begs for more than one visit.

Rebecca Loebe is a storyteller. The stories spill freely from this songwriter’s own circus heart, captured in lyrics that are thoughtful, reflective and often poetic. Several of the songs spring from her own experience and life on the road. ”Swallowed by the Sea”, for example, was written during and around the time that Rebecca was a contestant on NBC’s singing competition, The Voice. A touring musician who performs up to two hundred shows per year, Rebecca recalls the reaction of the show’s casting directors to her lifestyle. “….they were so shocked to hear that I make a living performing songs I write, at gigs that I book, drive myself to and perform on my own.” The first line of “Swallowed by the Sea”, “I have traveled many fathoms, lived inside a covered wagon, sold my secrets wholesale every night”, explains in fanciful terms the adventures of this traveling troubadour.
