What Lies Ahead is the debut full-length LP of classically-trained violinist and singer-songwriter Yvette Cornelia, who has recorded with independent artists the likes of Van Dyke Parks, Gaby Moreno, and Kamasi Washington. Here, Yvette’s string arrangements and melodic precision steer a path through the clouded landscape of her heart's desire, only to come undone by the communitas of improvisatory chamber folk.
