    Lucinda Williams

    For the past 30 years, Lucinda Williams has channeled her perspective as a proud but vulnerable Southern female into a string of stellar albums, each of which weave rock, country, folk, and blues so tightly that each of the elements seems to disappear.

    For the past 30 years, Lucinda Williams has channeled her perspective as a proud but vulnerable Southern female into a string of stellar albums, each of which weave rock, country, folk, and blues so tightly that each of the elements seems to disappear. Lucinda Williams (1988) was her breakthrough disk but her magnum opus, 1998's Car Wheels on a Gravel Road, sealed her reputation as a formidable singer-songwriter. Ruminating on disappointments, fretting over lost friends, and celebrating the subtlest of life's joys, it was an obvious masterpiece that resounds with immediacy.

    The object of cultish adoration for years, singer/songwriter Lucinda Williams was universally hailed as a major talent by both critics and fellow musicians, but it took quite some time for her to parlay that respect into a measure of attention from the general public. Yet her meticulous attention to detail and staunch adherence to her own vision were exactly what helped build her reputation. In early 2014, Williams finally was able to reissue her 1988 self-titled album with bonus material and will have her first new record in 3 1/2 years out in September.
