In addition to being a singularly expressive singer, Mendelson is a sensitive tunesmith with an uncanny knack for infusing even her darkest lyrical insights with a sexy playfullness.For Swan Feathers, Mendelson called upon the talents of veteran producer/arranger Rob Mounsey, whose voluminous resume includes work with the likes of Madonna, Paul Simon, Diana Krall, Steely Dan and Brian Wilson. The album's eclectic supporting cast also includes in-demand songwriter Steve McEwan, who plays guitar and co-wrote several of the album's songs with Mendelson; James Maddock, leader of the English band Wood, who also contributed guitar work; bassist Rich Hammond, who's worked with the likes of Nellie McKay and Raul Midon; and a pair of notable drummers, ex-Spin Doctors sticksman Aaron Comess and renowned freelance percussion master Ben Wittman.
