Small Believer is the latest offering from Portland singer-songwriter Anna Tivel. She offers insightful and often moving images of ordinary lives drawn from stories heard while out on the road. Open, honest and deeply affecting, it’s her best work yet.

A simple, but deeply touching and, ultimately, optimistic contemplation of life, recollected in quiet moments…this is a superb and sublime album from a voice that deserves to be shouted from the highest rooftops. Long may her heart burn this bright.
