Conjures ghosts and heroines, thieves, lovers and redeemers in a transcendent folk-blues, country-rock moonshine she’s been pulling straight from the still for nearly 20 years. She’s been living in the deep South for fifteen years, first in New Orleans, then moved to the higher ground in the North Mississippi Hill Country after Hurricane Katrina. She’s about to hit the road for a tour with monumental songwriter Rodney Crowell, and sings with him on his just-released album Tarpaper Sky. Check out their inspired duet-singing on Famous Last Words Of A Fool.
Her last recording, Small Town Talk, is a loving, collaborative tribute to the late Bobby Charles, conceived and created together with the great Dr. John and his Lower 911 Band at Dockside Studios, deep in Louisiana’s bayou heart.
