about

"Portland songwriter Anna Tivel is a favorite over at Hearth. She's a deft, clever songwriter with a knack for observing the small, subtle beauties of our lives." – Kithfolk

"Raw yet superbly composed and executed, as well as intelligent and personal and deeply expressive in their experience, observation and storytelling, the fifteen tracks on Before Machines don't just serve as an absorbing and utterly worthwhile listen but as indisputable evidence that the folk scene is in good hands with both its longtime artists and newcomers alike." - No Depression

"To be sure, these are organic songs that freely reveal the poetry of the mind, heart and soul, the sharp imagery of the world translated into sound, and both the simple and complex things represented sentimentally and at length." - Examiner

incredibly honest, lyric-driven, and deeply affecting.
