With a heart-stopping voice and wide-ranging instrumental talent, Odetta Hartman carries cowboy soul into an era where country can clash with computers, and bluegrass isn’t afraid of bass.
Odetta livestreams a performance for Sixth & I Living Room Sessions on Friday, April 24.
Odetta’s debut LP 222 — an experimental, bedroom-produced hybrid of folk, musique concrete, and psychedelia — was released on Northern Spy Records in 2015 to critical acclaim.
On her latest release, Old Rockhounds Never Die, Odetta continues to explore a unique sonic vernacular created in collaboration with producer Jack Inslee of Full Service Radio: badass banjos, detuned violins, field recordings, superstitious soundscapes, and vocal stylings ranging from sensual to spooky.
