Performer Notes
  • Audio Mixer: Tucker Martine.
  • Recording information: 2006.
  • Illustrator: Carson Ellis.
  • Arrangers: Shirley Collins; Colin Meloy.
  • The Decemberists' lead singer and songwriter, Colin Meloy, struck out on a solo acoustic tour in 2006, and the appropriately titled COLIN MELOY SINGS LIVE! captures the charm of his stage show. Interestingly, prior to 2006, the Decemberists had been steadily moving toward a denser, more complex sound that drew on progressive rock, but the stripped-down LIVE! reveals Meloy for what he's always been: a troubadour with a guitar.
  • On top of his knack for minor-key melodic hooks, Meloy's greatest skill is as a wordsmith. Detail-rich narratives, surprising metaphors, and lovely turns of phrase are the songsmith's stock in trade, and these can be heard on "Devil's Elbow," "Here I Dreamt I Was An Architect," "Dracula's Daughter," and elsewhere. Meloy's jangly guitar, plaintive voice, and friendly stage banter make LIVE! a fun, intimate experience.
Professional Reviews

CMJ - "SINGS LIVE! transcends mere fan curio status to serve as a long-form testament to Meloy's formidable songwriting and performing skills."

Q (Magazine) (p.136) - 3 stars out of 5 -- "The bulk of his set...finds him cherry-picking the best of his band's back catalogue and indulging in plenty of inner-song banter."

Paste (magazine) (p.55) - "Meloy bounds through beloved Decembrists tracks interwoven with scattered covers and one throwback to his college band, Tarkio..."
