Texan singer-songwriter who writes in a country/folk style.
Has released more than a dozen albums including a couple covering old and forgotten folk songs called Other Voices, Other Rooms and Other Voices Too. These featured a number of guest singers including Guy Clark, Alison Krauss, Lucinda Williams, Richard Thompson and Darius Rucker.
Her earlier albums are the better ones tho, with the production less polished, such as Last of The True Believers and Lone Star State Of Mind.
Also, the live album One Fair Summer Evening is well worth getting as it features a meandering version of her tribute to Woolworths, Love At The Five And Dime
The first and only time I heard her on the radio, she was singing Going Back to Georgia from her album Flyer, with Adam Duritz of Counting Crows. I immediately hit record and got most of the song on tape, though the brilliant DJ did not say who the artist was. I was entirely broke at the time, so I couldn't buy the cd, but I listened to that song often. SO, two years later, when I had some cash, I wandered the net, til I found her and bought Flyer. It's a cd to sing along with. Her voice actually annoyed me at first, kind of dreamy, but her lyrics take a good swing at you, so it works. When I'm singing along with her, it's pops my heart open and brings in some light.
