Songs about history and war.
"Haunting songs that spin Southern gothic yarns that resonate long after the music stops." - Jezebel Magazine
"A Critics' Pick. Pristine arrangements with no hint of excess; and their lyrics are pithy and interesting." - Nashville Scene
"Narrative arc songs that remind you of when alt-country was just country." - Fine Living Lancaster
Granville Automatic is Vanessa Olivarez and Elizabeth Elkins. The duo write songs pulled from a shared love of history, horses and war. Granville Automatic is named after a 19th-century typewriter: Vanessa is a collector. With sonic references like Lyle Lovett, Gram Parsons, Emmylou Harris and Willie Nelson, Granville Automatic has created a quiet and lyrical sound devoted to telling stories from the past. After writing together first in the spring of 2009, the pair has more than 90 songs – almost all of which tell stories from history.
