little shrine’s “Wilderness” reviewed in The Big Takeover
Issue #82, Spring 2018, Jack’s Other Reviews
“This spare trio is a vehicle for veteran Bay Area singer/songwriter/bassist Jade Shipman, who pens and sings delicate, warm, and personable folk songs and brooks no drums. There’s a guitarist, but Tony Schoenberg’s acoustic playing hugs the background so that every equally light bow of violinist Ryan Avery can dance around Shipman’s vocals, and to insure you can hear each word of her attempts to grapple honestly with feelings she might prefer to remain hidden. Though she’s sanguine enough to know that “fighting upstream” for the unattainable can be a fool’s errand, the delight she and mates show in these sprightly creations are their own reward.” - Jack Rabid

"The San Francisco backdrop of the video is the perfect accompaniment to the delicate, yet powerful track. The musicianship and balance of the strings, guitars, and vocals create a distinct mood and a song fit for Fall weather."

"The downtempo indie-pop/folk of Little Shrine‘s “Stone” sounds way too polished and mature to come out of a debut. But what seems incredible is true, much to the listener’s benefit."
