"If you like Bobby Gentry . . . Try Tift Merritt" - New York Times

This North Carolina singer-songwriter creates handmade songs inspired by thunderstorms, feathers, old typewriters and handwritten letters. Her "distaff country soul" has found acclaim in the world of independent acoustic music. Her direct and unadorned vocal work is understated enough to feel personable, while her Carolina twang provides just the right touch of charisma to win over fans around the world, and critics from Vanity Fair, New Yorker, Rolling Stone, and NPR, who have compared her to Emmylou Harris, Joni Mitchell, and Bobby Gentry.

Tift has been honored with a Grammy Nomination for Best Country Album, and her first two records landed on The New Yorker's Top Ten List. She has performed on Austin City Limits, The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, and The Late Show with David Letterman. The Americana Music Association has nominated her for Album, Artist and Song of the Year.

This will be her first appearance at Caffe Lena.
