Overview

Laurie Lewis has enjoyed most of her support from traditional bluegrass and folk audiences, and yet she's hardly a slave to tradition. A varied release, True Stories ranges from the traditional Irish song "Singing Bird" to the country gems "Who Will Watch the Home Place," "Still a Fool," and "Val's Cabin" to folk-pop numbers like "Knocking on Your Door Again" and "Swept Away." The Bay Area native is as excellent a songwriter as she is a vocalist, and it isn't hard to imagine "Val's Cabin" or "You'll Be Leaving Me" being big country hits with slicker production and some of Nashville's promotional muscle. Lewis' audience is a small one, but her music is definitely well worth getting to know.
