The Daily News reviews Dreamy Weather

Austin, Texas-based folk songstress Erin Ivey has a loyal core group of fans.  So much so, in fact, that a couple hundred of them donated 154 percent of the goal Ivey set out in a Kickstarter campaign to fund production of "Dreamy Weather."  Those who gave their money (as well as those who didn't) are almost certain to fall in love with this nine-track collection of stripped-back, intimate tunes recorded during a performance at Austin's famed Cactus Cafe.  Ivey is on top of her game here, delivering soul-baring renditions of "Amelia," "Rest Your Head" (featuring pal BettySoo), "Canyon," and "Sorrow No More."  The opening cover of Tom Waits' "Alice" sets the tone for a truly remarkable performance.  4-stars  -J.Sisk
