Idgy Vaughn: Sassy, Sweet, Sad, and Strong

Idgy Vaughn's music entered my life on a completely accidental visit to a local music spot here in Austin this summer and this disc has really been the soundtrack to these last few months. The strongest tracks are "Good Enough" and "Saint Francis Fire" : both of these hit at the heart of her music. It's very personal, it's so lyrically and rhyme-scheme tight you could use it as a bass drum, and its delivered with that Southern fragility with a steel rod through the spine. "Good Enough" is a melancholy song with such a beautiful touch of silver on its lining you just can't get enough. "Saint Francis Fire" taps into the folk, ghost-story ballad: the recitation of the names of the young girls who lost their lives as a Christmas pageant went up in flames. Now you might be thinking, perhaps this is all going to be that Tennessee Williams, Southern Gothic style music, but there are two great songs destined for the honky tonk jukebox: "Mister Wrong" and "Redbone Hound". Mr. Wrong follows the delivery that's typically associated with the craft of Dwight Yoakam: voice cracks, four-four, some fun lyrical turnabouts in 5 verses. "Redbone Hound" puts the listener in the mind of a person who's just been done wrong a few too many times and is actually wondering if life would be better without this whole love nonsense and with a reliable dawg. It also features Idgy doing a hound's howl that brings a big ol' smile to my face every time I hear it. Oh! And I must add that I love the murder-ballad "Dragging the river", it's got all those noir Nick Cave / Leadbelly murder elements that really make the tale exciting. The rest of the album delivers very strong songs, but I wanted to gush about my favorites. I must also recommend that anyone checking this out go see Ms. Vaughn live. Her voice is great and some unrecorded-as-yet songs hint that this is no fluke but a talent that will continue to charm for the next several years.

A Must Have

I'm going to start with the cliche' "I'm not a country fan", and quickly state that this is a must-have for your music collection. Idgy Vaughn's roots reach back into classic country forms, and her lyrics will take you from laughter ("Dragging The River" and "Mister Wrong") to tears ("Good Enough") and back again. For those who enjoy the Blues, Texas Swing or Soul, do yourself a favor and buy this album.

Excellent song writer and performer

Idgy stopped off in Birmingham on a trip that began in Austin and ended in Atlanta. Her live performance lays her soul bare like a patchwork quilt and takes you on a rollercoaster of emotions and vistas that can only be imagined if you took America and sliced it up like a loaf of bread. Each slice different from the last, but all part of the same experience. Highly recommended.
