For over quarter of a century, Atlanta’s Chan Marshall has been carving herself a niche as an expert crafter of gorgeously understated torch songs. Her most recent album, Wanderer, was her first in six years, and her first for Domino Records, after her previous label rejected the record and told her she should make an album more like Adele’s 25. Expect folkie tracks, an undercurrent of blues, and emotional rawness on a Monday night at the Enmore, all carried by Marshall’s voice; a beautifully smoky lament that could soften the stoniest of hearts. You’re more than likely to get a cover version or two as well – she released an entire album of them back in 2000, and Wanderer features Marshall’s reinterpretation of Rihanna’s ‘Stay.’
