Austin native, Carrie Rodriguez is one of my favorite new discoveries. She is a blue grass or Americana artist with a beautiful voice that plays the fiddle and the guitar. On the week of July 11, you will get to see her Austin City Limits taping re-air on PBS affiliates everywhere. Her performance is paired with one from Jacob Dylan of The Wallflowers and son of legendary Bob Dylan. She performs songs from her latest solo album, She Ain’t Me, as well as songs from her solo debut album, Seven Angels On A Bicycle. She is backed up by her touring band – Hans Holzen (guitars), Kyle Kegerreis (bass), and Eric Platz (drums) with very special guests Gary Louris (The Jayhawks), and instrumentaists Greg Leisz (pedal steel, slide guitar),and Michael Ramos (keyboards).
Rodriguez has also recently made Live in Louisville, a recording she made in 2007 while opening for Lucinda Williams available via her website and shows. It’s available exclusively at Waterloo Records in Austin, TX and at Ear X-tacy in Louisville, KY. It will be released worldwide digitally (only) on November 24th.
In the meantime, I invite you to enjoy Rodriguez performing "Abscence" from her Austin City Limits taping. Listen and discover why she is winning over new listeners everywhere she goes.
