Alejandro Escovedo is a straight-ahead, country-tinged roots rocker, having served time in such bands as The Nuns and Rank and File and The True Believers. Since emerging on his own in the early 1990s, he has released nine albums marked by a stunning variety of music and eloquent lyrical expression, all of them praised by critics for their power, beauty and sophistication. A rock n' roll background, deep fried with an admiration for American roots music proves a tasty recipe on Sarah Borges' debut, 'Silver City' Her work has just enough spice to make you sit up straight and enough heartfelt emotion to make you think hard about why it is that you're wiping your eyes at its conclusion. Constantly looking for authentic, heartfelt sounds, Borges digests the sounds around her and then delivers them anew in her own distinctive and unique style, full of country power and alt rock.
