Kelley Mickwee :: You Used To Live Here


BLU642-dYou Used To Live Here is, na het einde van de Texaanse band The Trishas, het solodebuut van Kelley Mickwee. Daarvoor toog ze naar Memphis. En daar maake ze de CD waarvan ze droomde. Americana a la Lucinda Williams met een fikse portie Aretha Franklin. Het komt vooral samen in River Girl, het nummer dat ze schreef met Kevin Welch, en in Beautiful Accidents, een duet met Owen Temple. Baanbrekende en fascinerende muziek.

It’s easy to hear You Used to Live Here as the kind of record Kelley Mickwee was born to make. After more than a decade of fine-tuning her performance chops, first as half of the Tennessee-based folk duo Jed and Kelley and later as part of the all-girl Texas group The Trishas, Mickwee is releasing an official solo debut that plays like an all-pieces-falling-into-place mission statement of a seasoned artist who’s finally come into her own. But asked about the impetus for the album, she’ll straight-up tell you that it wasn’t so much carpe-diem moxie as it was, well, a kind of panic.
