A fu­sion of coun­try with an indie flavour

DEAR CREEK CANYON

Sera Ca­hoone (Rhyth­method) Sera Ca­hoone is, as the Hawai­ians might say, kahuna, an ex­pert.

It’s ev­i­dent not just in its dusky and in­ti­mate reve­la­tions of the vul­ner­a­bil­ity of be­ing in love but not sure whether you are loved in re­turn – Naked – but also in its mu­si­cal fu­sion of coun­try with an indie flavour.

Ca­hoone, a Columbine grad­u­ate, can hoe­down with the best of them on Ner­vous Wreck.

She can draw un­com­fort­able fa­mil­iar char­ac­ter sketches of peo­ple ex­pe­ri­ences that have left us feel- ing in­se­cure – One To Blame, lonely – Ev­ery Lit­tle Word, and even des­per­ate – Deer Creek Canyon.

The fact she has toured with or opened for Lucinda Wil­liams, Jay Far­rar, Mary Gau­thier, Band of Horses, Son Volt should be sign enough that she has some­thing spe­cial.
