An Interview with Lucinda Williams

I love the music Williams brings to the table. Aside from the alternative country sound, which is a genre I find myself naturally moving toward, the lyrics are earthy, honest and true to the human condition. In the broader listening audience she is best know for a cover Mary Chapin Carpenter did, Passionate Kisses. But it is Williams’ own voice that gives her music not so much beauty as resonance. She is not your classic blond babe that record labels love to market, but she is a woman with an independent voice who stands on her own and is to be listened to.

A few of my favorite pieces are: Are You Alright?; Learning How to Live(sound could be better but you’ll get the idea); Changed the Locks; Born to Be Loved; Over Time; Words Fell; American Dream.

Here is an interview with Lucinda I enjoyed. Select Show #380: 03.08.13
