Acclaimed Country/Folk Singer-Songwriter
“America’s Greatest Songwriter” -Time Magazine
Lucinda Williams has established a reputation as one of rock’s most uncompromising and consistently fascinating writers and performers, earning kudos from artists as diverse as Mary-Chapin Carpenter (who helped win Williams a Grammy with her recording of “Passionate Kisses”) and Elvis Costello (who joins her for a duet on the Little Honey mini-drama “Jailhouse Tears”).
Over the course of a recording career that’s now in its fourth decade, the Louisiana-born singer has navigated terrain as varied as the dust-bowl starkness of her 1978 debut Ramblin’ (recorded on the fly with a mere 250 dollar budget behind her) and the stately elegance of last year’s West (which Vanity Fair called “the record of a lifetime”).
“Williams radiates such outlaw cool that it’s surreal to think that she’s currently enjoying mainstream success… few could match her extraordinary voice” -Guardian UK
“a voice full of everything from righteous gusto to hard-won wisdom…” -Paste Magazine
“mature but hip” -BBC
