is no wonder that Lucinda Williams writes the songs of
experience. Her voice can capture joy and misery with the same
intensity. She has completely lived in her lifetime.
Born in Lake Charles, Louisiana, to renowned poet
Miller Williams and a talented pianist mother, Lucinda had a ferocious
love for music and words at an early age.
childhood travels took her from Fayetteville, Arkansas, to Santiago,
Chile, and everywhere in between. Her itinerant nature can be found in
her music, as well, since she draws from a diverse array of artists who
Loretta Lynn and Hank Williams, but also
Bob Dylan and the Doors and Jimi Hendrix," she says. "I don't
see anything wrong with loving all kinds of music."
The history of Lucinda's career is fast becoming the
stuff of music legend, but a brief primer is in order: after two early
albums, "Ramblin'" (1979) and
Woman Blues" (1980),
Lucinda's self titled release from Rough Trade is considered her
breakthrough. "Lucinda Williams"
(1988) included some of her
best-known classics, including "Passionate Kisses," which won
her a songwriting Grammy in 1994. "Sweet Old World" was
released in 1992 to continued applause and six years later came
Wheels On A Gravel Road," widely considered as one of the
most influential records of the last half-century and hailed as
"the Blonde on Blonde of the 1990's" by legendary producer Joe
Boyd. "Essence" follows in her tradition of greatness, while
offering something new to the listening masses.
"I'm proud of this record," Lucinda says.
"I'm proud of these lyrics and this music. It's a bit of a
departure for me, and it's a very mature sound."
Lucinda Williams proves that
she's built to last. Her confidence is evident in every line. Her
trademark voice is in top form here - eclectic as Lucinda herself, her
singing can capture everything from stark betrayal to unadulterated joy.
Therein lies the secret to Lucinda's genius - she writes and sings
about real life: the pain, pleasure, and everything in between.
