Show Post: In House #1488
The most recent project for singer-songwriters Caitlin Cary and Thad Cockrell is Begonias, out earlier this year on Yep Roc. The collaboration between the long-time friends sounds every bit as warm and comfortable as one would think it might, with many of the songs growing out of lazy Sunday afternoon hangouts in North Carolina.
Cary, of course, got her start in Whiskeytown back in the mid-90's, and has been one of the few thus far who has been able to weather Ryan Adams' volatility for any amount of time. Since Whiskeytown went dry, Cary has released two solo albums as well as one as part of Tres Chicas just last year. Cockrell, who now lives in Nashville, has a couple of solo releases to his credit as well, the last being 2003's Warmth & Beauty. The duo evokes images of a Conway & Loretta for the alt-country set. Currently touring together, Cary & Cockrell play at Ego's in Salt Lake City tonight.
