  Lucinda Williams
Lucinda Williams January 1953, Lake Charles, Louisiana, USA. Her father, Miller Williams, is a professor of literature and a professional poet, but it was her mother, a music graduate, who influenced Lucinda the most. She played folk clubs in Texas in the mid-70s and made her first albums for Folkways Records. Her career failed to take off until she moved to Los Angeles some years later, but she was further stymied by an abortive development contract with CBS Records in the mid-80s. She describes songwriting as 'like writing a journal but I don't want it to sound self-indulgent.' Her self-titled album for Rough Trade Records in 1989 finally re-established her with its attendant strong press. Sweet Old World provided darker subject matter than most folk-country albums; the title song is about suicide and 'Pineola' similarly concerns a poet who shot himself.

It included a cover version of Nick Drake 's 'Which Will', with musical backing by Benmont Tench, Bryce Berline and Doug Atwell. She has also performed on the tribute albums to Merle Haggard ( Tulare Dust) and Victoria Williams ( Sweet Relief). In the 90s Mary-Chapin Carpenter earned a major US country hit with her 'Passionate Kisses'. Williams is now signed to American Recordings.
