Overview

"Whatever happened to good old rock & roll" are the first words Crystal Bowersox sings on her debut, Farmer's Daughter, thereby succinctly summarizing her appeal on American Idol. During season nine of the long-running televised talent show, Bowersox was the earth mother who placed second to Lee DeWyze's hammy smarm, providing a port in the storm for lovers of good old rock & roll, the kind they made back in the late '60s. Crystal's idol was clearly Janis Joplin -- she auditioned with "Piece of My Heart," she never strayed far from a throaty blues growl -- which in modern terms translates to something halfway between Melissa Etheridge and Sheryl Crow, two artists whose well-manicured roots rock echoes on Farmer's Daughter. Bowersox possesses a charisma that's tangible on record, helping to pull a listener through the songs, almost all penned by Bowersox herself.
