Three-time Grammy Award winner, Lucinda Williams has been carving her own
path for more than three decades now. Born in Lake Charles, Louisiana, Williams
had been imbued with a “culturally rich, economically poor” worldview. Several
years of playing the hardscrabble clubs gave her a solid enough footing to record
a self-titled album that would become a touchstone for the embryonic Americana
movement – helping launch a thousand musical ships along the way.
While not a huge commercial success at the time Lucinda Williams (aka, the
Rough Trade album) retained a cult reputation, and finally got the reception it
deserved upon its reissue in 2014. Jim Farber of New York’s Daily News hailed
the reissue by saying “Listening again proves it to be that rarest of beasts: a
perfect work. There’s not a chord, lyric, beat or inflection that doesn’t pull at the
heart or make it soar.”
For much of the next decade, Williams moved around the country, stopping in
Austin, Los Angeles, Nashville, and turning out work that won immense respect
within the industry (winning a Grammy for Mary Chapin Carpenter’s version of
“Passionate Kisses”) and a gradually growing cult audience. While her recorded
output was sparse for a time, the work that emerged was invariably hailed for its
indelible impressionism -- like 1998’s Car Wheels on a Gravel Road, which
notched her first Grammy as a performer.
The past decade brought further development, both musically and personally,
evidenced on albums like West (2007), which All Music Guide called
“flawless...destined to become a classic” and Blessed (2011), which the Los
Angeles Times dubbed “a dynamic, human, album, one that’s easy to fall in love
with.” Those albums retained much of Williams’ trademark melancholy and
southern Gothic starkness, but also exuded more rays of light and hope. This all
lead to the 2014 release of Williams’ first double studio album Down Where The
Spirit Meets The Bone, followed by the 2016 release of her second double
album, the The Ghosts of Highway 20. Both albums received overwhelming
praise from the media and fans. 2020’s Good Soul Better Angels was a socio-
political masterpiece, garnering two Grammy nominations as well as features in
The New York Times, Rolling Stone, Los Angeles Times and so much more,
Lucinda made a return appearance on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert and
was the subject of a feature segment on NPR’s All Things Considered.
In October of 2021, Lucinda Williams was inducted into the Austin City Limits Hall
Of Fame
