“Mama Was a Train Wreck”
From Sonic Bloom
3rd Coast Music, Austin, TX:
JC’s Best of 2013
“Best Female Artist”
with Suzanne Davenport and Jim Petrie
Singer-songwriter Karen Hudson has been compared to Rosanne Cash by
The Village Voice
and to early Linda Ronstadt by 3rd Coast Music Magazine in Austin, Texas. She has opened for Madeliene Peyroux, Walter Salas Humara and Pete Seeger. This is Americana for people who keep The Byrds and
The Beatles next to Johnny Cash and Patsy Cline.
“She’s an elegant tunesmith, evocative lyricist...a subtly nuanced singer. Some of her songs were funny, like "Nicotine", her irresistibly amusing ode to the death-defying lure of tobacco. Others, like "I Thought I'd Die", with its litany of near-misses, had the matter-of-fact resoluteness that runs through much of her songwriting,"

Gimme some sun, air and water, I've got nothing left to hide.
Just when your "Dead Flowers" have all wilted in their vase
I'll be blooming in your garden "Some Sunny Day."
The lyrics to this song are a nod and wink to the Rolling Stones
and the Byrds.
