I saw Carrie Rodriguez in Newcastle a few years ago – she was playing with Chip Taylor and together they were supporting John Prine. The whole show was great but I was particularly struck by Carrie’s voice and fiddle playing. She was certainly the highlight of the whole evening for me.Her second solo album “She Ain’t Me” is out now (released August 5th) and I’m hoping to get a review copy. In the meantime, there is some stuff around to check out. There’s a streaming audio link for the title track here and for another track “Eldorado” here. Carrie has a website here and the usual myspace stuff too, check out her fabulous voice for yourselves. I can’t wait to hear the album.
