Following the critical acclaim of Revolver: A New Spin-one of the Village Voice's "Top Ten Recordings of 2000"-the celebrated and ever-eclectic singer Ann Dyer returns with When I Close My Eyes, her debut release on Sunnyside Records. As its title suggests, the new disc finds Dyer turning inward, leaving behind the familiar ground of the Beatles' music to wade into a darker, more enigmatic space-an ocean of quiet longing where the heart finds solace in its own insistent pulse. With a spare sonic palette of vocals, acoustic bass, and drums, Dyer achieves her most intimate and subtly moving work to date.

"Vocalist Ann Dyer pares away all the nonessentials and rides a subtle but inexorable tidal flow into a search for interior truths on When I Close My Eyes. The sound is spare, poetic, and haunting, the singer accompanied by just accoustic bass and drums for explorations of the darker levels of consciousness. The mood throughout feels brooding and ethereal, sometimes drone-like, a pensive expansion. Dyer's voice has a feather softness, bringing to mind Margo Timmons of the Cowboy Junkies “ and like The Trinity Session, that group's marvelous and unpretentious first album, When I Close My Eyes sounds ageless." - All About Jazz
