Song Premiere: Logan Brill — “Nobody’s Crying”

Juli Thanki | October 2nd, 2013

Logan-Brill-Credit-Cassandra-Leete-12013 has already been a fantastic year for women in country and Americana music, and it doesn’t look like that trend is slowing any time soon, as 22-year old Logan Brill serves up rootsy pop along the lines of The Wreckers, Brandi Carlile or Sheryl Crow on her new album, Walking Wires.

The record is an impressive debut from the Tennessee native, who’s got a powerful voice that can go from sweet and pleading (“Write It on Your Heart”) to gritty and rebellious (bluesy rocker “Ne’er Do Wells”).  Walking Wires, which will be released October 15 on Carnival Music, is full of soulful originals and a well-chosen cover: Patty Griffin’s “Nobody’s Crying,” which we’re glad to premiere below:

    This is beautiful. Her soulful voice is very emotive in its delivery.
