Carrie Rodriguez coming soon on Diverse.

We’ve loved Carrie Rodriguez for a while now, we went to see her in Texas at SxSW last year and started the ball rolling on getting this album on the label. The album in question is ‘Love and Circumstance’, an album of cover versions that show off Carrie’s influences and musical range.

Love & Circumstance was released in the US & Canada on April 13th, 2010 with Ninth Street Opus. It was was produced by Lee Townsend (Bill Frisell, Loudon Wainwright III, etc) and is a great collection of songs written by the likes of John Hiatt/Ry Cooder/Nick Lowe/Jim Keltner (aka Little Village), Buddy & Julie Miller, David Rodriguez (her Dad), M. Ward, Lucinda Williams; Richard Thompson, Sandrine, Gillian Welch & Dave Rawlings; Bonnie Owens & Merle Haggard, Townes van Zandt, Hank Williams, & Sosa Tomas Mendez (a song her Great Aunt, Ava Garza sang). It was recorded with her world-class touring band: Hans Holzen (guitars), Kyle Kegerreis (bass), and Eric Platz (drums). Special guests joining in on the recording include Bill Frisell, Buddy Miller, Greg Leisz, and Aoife O’Donovan.

It’ll be released on vinyl this autumn and include a download code for this album and also a code for Carrie’s follow up mini-album ‘We Still Love Our Country’, information on this can be found here.
