At a time when hope and forgiveness seem in short supply, roots singer-songwriter Amy Ray gives us all a shot in the arm with her ninth solo album, Holler, due this fall from Daemon Records.
Still thriving as one half of GRAMMY-winning folk duo Indigo Girls, Ray has also produced a vital body of solo work over five studio albums and three live records (beginning with 2001’s Stag) that explores more deeply her roots in punk and classic country music.
Last time, on 2014’s Goodnight Tender, she gathered a band of mostly Southern players and immersed into the rich sonic tradition of old-style country music-making that had long-captured her imagination, but never fully made it into work. The result was equal-parts Appalachian gospel and late-night honky tonk.
