Announcing Lucinda Williams at the Uptown Theatre Napa on 1/20

Lucinda Williams to play a very special and rare mostly acoustic set that you will not want to miss. Although always adept at painting landscapes of the soul, illuminating the spirit’s shadowy nooks and shimmering crannies – Lucinda has never captured the sun breaking through the clouds as purely as on her new Lost Highway release, Little Honey.

I’m in a different phase of my life, so there are more happy moments on this album,” the singer-songwriter says of her ninth studio set.

“I’m in a different phase of my life, so there are more happy moments on this album,” the singer-songwriter says of her ninth studio set. “‘Darkly introspective,’ is one phrase people have used to describe a lot of my songs. There are moody songs, but I’m looking outside myself a little bit more. These aren’t ‘boy meets girl, boy leaves girl, girl gets bummed out’ songs -- there’s a lot more than that going on.”

Williams wastes no time signaling that mood change, leading into Little Honey's opener, “Real Love” with a false start riff that's the six-string equivalent of a friendly wink – then sidling into the tune's hard-rocking vibe with a sensual slink that underscores the passion of finding exactly what that title indicates. The bluesy physicality of that tune is echoed in several of Little Honey's tracks, from the charmingly chugging “Honeybee” to the gorgeous melodies of “If Wishes Were Horses”.
Catch Lucinda Williams plus Blake Mills on Friday, January 20th 2012. Doors open at 7:00pm, show starts at 8:00pm.

“I’m stepping out and writing about things other than unrequited love. But because that’s not part of my experience anymore,” she explains, “doesn’t mean I’m going to stop being a songwriter. There are plenty of other important things to write about -- the state of the world, for one thing -- I don’t buy into the myth that because you get to a certain level of contentment, you have to throw in the towel.”
