‘It’s usually the quiet ones who have the most to say,’ begins a review of Bess Atwell’s latest album, Already, Always. It’s true — the Brighton-based songwriter commands her listeners with intimacy and poise, through distinctly relatable songs that come across like a peek inside her diary. But her music also clamours with the emotional volume found from Big Thief and Sharon Van Etten. Bess Atwell returns to Green Man this year for what’s sure to be a special show.
