Brooklyn multi-instrumentalist and songwriter Kristin Andreassen’s gorgeous new album ‘Gondolier’ is earning raves ahead of its release next week. Featuring guests Chris Eldridge (of the Punch Brothers) and Aoife O’Donovan (the latter of whom will sing with her at Joe’s Pub March 10), ‘Gondolier’ is a full of delights, both melodic and lyrical. Here’s a video preview of the album.

Andreassen will also launch her first solo headlining tour next month with a full band (dates below).

“Whimsical indie-folk style.”
- Caroline Hallemann, Travel + Leisure, February 10, 2014

“Delicate beauty.”
- Chris Parton, CMT Edge, December 4, 2014

“She brought shimmering, breezy vocals and wildly interesting melodies. Her clean, malleable tone reminded me of her colleagues and friends Aoife O’Donovan and Ruth Ungar. But the songs were as personal as a signature.”
- Craig Havighurst, Music City Roots, January 21, 2015

“A beautiful collection of songs.”
- Christian Williams, UTNE Reader, February 3, 2015

“The elegantly understated acoustic pop of Andreassen’s upcoming second solo album, ‘Gondolier,’ is as catchy as anything out there.”
- David Menconi, Raleigh News & Observer, January 15, 2015

“A fantastic collection of ethereal folk tunes, jangly Americana and indie-heavy pop.”
- Cameron Matthews, The Bluegrass Situation, January 27, 2015

"At the start of any year, it’s always a challenge to pick a handful of artists who could break out of the musical pack to make a big impact. This deeply soulful artist is easily one of those."
- Bill Bentley, Morton Report, January 12, 2015

“A collection of gorgeous indie-folk songs”
- Michael Hamad, CTNow (Hartford Courant), December 29, 2014
