Kristin Hersh's solo life -- her "day job" she calls it -- is ongoing. She's recorded five solo albums - one prior to, and four since Throwing Muses split: Hips and Makers, 1994 - Sky Motel, 1997 - the internet-only-sold Appalachian covers collection Murder, Misery and Then Goodnight, 1998 - Strange Angels, 1999 - Sunny Border Blue, 2001, The Grotto. Perhaps the most nakedly acoustic album she's ever made, it was recorded quick on the heels of the rampantly electric Throwing Muses album.
"Working in the same direction as other early pioneers like the Pixies and R.E.M., Kristin Hersh helped draw up the road map that would lead directly to Nirvana, Pearl Jam and the alt-rock explosion of the early '90s." - Jim Harrington, Oakland Tribune
