The new Bye Bye
(Train Wreck Records, 2010):

Carrie Rodriguez released her third solo album, “Love and Circumstances,” earlier this year. It’s a delicious all-covers album which finds her delving into the songbags of Richard Thompson, Merle Haggard, John Hiatt and others. (Read our review here)

But Rodriguez first came to national attention with a string of albums that featured her as the fiddling ‘n’ singing musical partner of Chip Taylor, the author of such gems as “Wild Thing” and “Angel of the Morning.”



CD: Carrie Rodriguez’s “Love and Circumstance”

“I’m a full-grown woman, and I’m looking for a big love,” Carrie Rodriguez sings on the opening track of her upcoming album (due out on Tuesday, April 13), and it’s no idle boast.

Rodriguez has come a long, long way since the days when she was Chip Taylor’s fiddling sidekick. She still plays some fiddle on “Love and Circumstance,” her third solo album, but she really makes her mark here as a singer – at once confident, passionate and relaxed.

While Rodriguez penned most of the songs on her sophomore album, 2008’s “She Ain’t Me,” this time around she pays tribute to her musical influences, digging into the rich songbags of Richard Thompson (“Waltzing’s for Dreamers”), Gillian Welch and David Rawlings (“I Made a Lover’s Prayer”), M. Ward (“Eyes on the Prize”) and Townes Van Zandt (“Rex’s Blues”).
