CD reviews for Carrie Rodriguez

Lola CD review - Lola
There had to be some trepidation when 15 years into her career, Carrie Rodriguez decidedly emphasized her Latina heritage and incorporated several Spanish songs on her latest record. The Texas-born Rodriguez didn't grow up speaking Spanish (she picked it up from her ex-husband). Seven previous solo releases (two were live) and her early career collaboration with songwriter Chip Taylor, a Spanish-infused album seemed, well, foreign to an older audience comfortable with her fiddling and alt. »»»
Give Me All You Got CD review - Give Me All You Got
Given her remarkable apprenticeship in the company of veteran singer/songwriter Chip Taylor, and, following that, an acclaimed series of solo outings that brought stardom on her own, the bar was set exceptionally high for "Give Me All You Got." Her last release, "Love and Circumstance," found her taking a momentary detour via an impressive collection of covers, but even so, it makes her return to original material all the more auspicious.

Love And Circumstance
Despite having a respectable music past, Carrie Rodriguez is an artist without moorings. On All the Rain, recorded in 2003 with mentor Chip Taylor, Rodriguez sang, self-mockingly, "Didn't they tell you/There's something wrong with her accent?"

When these folks would sing about being down-and-out and the rough-and-tumble, they knew of what they were singing about. Fast forward a few years to the country singers of today. »»»
Concert Review: Sweeney maintains her musical integrity – Sunny Sweeney has gone the big label route and even earned a hit with "From a Table Away," but truth be told, she's better off without the baggage of the bigs, especially given the consistent quality and musical vision that was so clearly and admirably on display on this evening. When the East Texas native started her career, she was... »»»
Concert Review: Live, Shelley proves she's the real deal – After the concert, Joan Shelley was greeted by a fan at the near sold-out club who had never seen her before. The first timer told the Louisville, Ky.-based folk-oriented singer that she wanted to see for herself if Shelley's vocals were the real deal live. The fan walked away mighty impressed -based on her comments - and it was easy to see why.... »»»
