Corinne West and I have known each other over 7 years - she was part of the Acoustic Vortex house party series I helped develop and lead. I have always been captivated by her voice and her songwriting. She does Americana and folk and acoustic and country and a lot of other things just beautifully. Needless to say, I have every album and have gone to every show I could, from the house concerts we produced to her shows at large venues like Freight and Salvage in Berkeley, CA. I was never quite able to coordinate our travel to see her shows in Europe, which I understand were always sold out. Recently she spent some time in in the Austrian Alps studying graphics arts, one of her other loves and skills, before returning to the states to record her latest album, The Promise. Joining her are long time friends Pam Delgado and Jeri Jones of the band Blame Sally. I am so looking forward to talking with Corinne and giving you the opportunity to join me.
