Nashville born country and folk singer-songwriter Laura Cantrell hosted her own radio show at home in New York. Here in the UK her relationship with the BBC goes back 15 years with interviews and sessions on programmes with the likes of Rob Harris, Andy Kershaw and the late John Peel. Peel especially championed her, referring to ‘Not the Tremblin’ Kind’ as “my favourite record of the last ten years, possibly my life.”
Cantrell’s new CD, set for release in late April ‘Laura Cantrell: The BBC Sessions’ compiles the best of these on-air performances from 2000-2005, including previously unreleased songs, and traces a new Americana artist finding her voice on the British airwaves.
