FEATURED ARTIST: Lucinda Williams
The singer/songwriter and guitarist was born in Lake Charles, LA back in 1953. She has a contemporary folk, alternative country-rock, and Americana style of writing and performing. People claim she's a perfectionist because she only releases new albums every three to five years but, I think it takes that long to develop truly remarkable recordings. She crafts each song meticulously and deftly blends country, blues, and folk to create a unique sound that cannot be pigeonholed into any particular format. She released seven studio albums since 1979, most of them to great acclaim.
