iTunes Editors’ Notes

Wilco’s Jeff Tweedy and Patrick Sansone are continuing their alliance with the Guthrie family. Here, they produce Sarah Lee Guthrie (Woody's granddaughter and Arlo’s daughter) and her husband, Johnny Irion, for a far more pop outing than the days of Mermaid Avenue, where the Wilco guys tried their best to re-create the earthy folk melodies that Woody stuck to in his life. Young Guthrie and her hubby are songwriters living in the 21st century. When they feel like being playful, they serenade their cat, “Chairman Meow,” for the album’s first single and leadoff track. “Not Feeling It” bounces with agitated notes demanding you pay attention. But best are the slower, more reflective tunes, such as “Sleep on It” (where the duo’s harmonies simmer on the surface), “Wherever She Is It's Spring” (which uses Wilco’s alt-county pedigree to set the scene up against their ‘70s pop chords), and “Still Dreaming” (where everyone agrees to enjoy the mellow reprieve before resuming the action).

Customer Reviews

Well Put Together

Just started playing this album the music store I work at. The harmonies of both Guthrie and Irion are excellent. Thoughtful lyrics and chorus take you back.

Wassaic way

The best duo in today's music. Great lyrics, music and roots! Awesome to have Jeff Tweedy working with Sarah and Jonny, too.

A delight!

“… an album that captures Guthrie and Irion’s remarkable melodic strengths and marries them to Tweedy and Sansone’s sympathetic and beautifully shaped production.” -American Songwriter

Biography

Genre: Singer/Songwriter

Years Active: '00s, '10s

While she may not have envisioned it early on, Sarah Lee Guthrie, the daughter of Arlo Guthrie and granddaughter of Woody Guthrie, ended up answering the call of family tradition, releasing her self-titled debut on the family-owned Rising Son Records in 2001. Careful observers will notice that her first recorded appearance was as a toddler vocalist on dad's 1981 album Power of Love. As an adolescent, she would also sing with her dad on the Grammy-nominated children's album Woody's 20 Grow Big Songs....
