Carrie Rodriguez w/Luke JacobsPop/Rock
Whatever image the phrase “fiddle-playing singer-songwriter” brings to mind, it can’t possibly do justice to Carrie Rodriguez. Growing up in Austin with a singer-songwriter for a dad, she took in Texas folk before setting her course for classical violin training at Oberlin Conservatory. From there, she converted to fiddle and transferred to Berklee, got drafted into a duo with wizened songwriter Chip Taylor, and found her footing as a solo artist in the forward-thinking cosmopolitanism of Brooklyn, her adopted home. Not unlike her great-aunt, Eva Garza — a pre-rock culture-bridging Mexican recording artist — Rodriguez has taken the diverse ingredients at her disposal and fashioned a combination of exoticism and familiarity that really ignites a crowd. Her fifth solo album, the brand-new Give Me All You Got, is a heady blend of roots, emotionally amped-up narrative and indie-pop whimsy.
