ABOUT CARRIE RODRIGUEZ:
Carrie Rodriguez released Give Me All You Got, her fifth full-length solo album, on January 22, 2013 via Ninth Street Opus. Produced by Lee Townsend (Bill Frisell, Loudon Wainwright III, Kelly Joe Phelps), the record marries Rodriguez's Texas background with a decade spent in Brooklyn. The album is filled with original songs that Carrie says "run the gamut of intense emotions." She goes on to note "for the first time, I feel that the passionate spirit of my live show has truly been captured in a studio album." The record also features Chip Taylor with whom Carrie has collaborated on five albums and an EP.
Give Me All You Got follows Love and Circumstance, which No Depression hailed as "an album you do not want to miss." The Washington Post described Carrie "a superb interpretive singer, not only milking melodies for all their pleasure but also revealing new implications in the lyrics."
At each stage of Carrie Rodriguez’s career—as a fiddler, singer, and songwriter—the Austin, Texas, native has learned the importance of letting go. That was certainly true when it came to recording this fifth solo album, Give Me All You Got, her first of largely original tunes in several years. “In the making of Love and Circumstance in 2008, I chose to sing other people’s songs,” Rodriguez explains. “I needed to take a step back from songwriting and think about the kinds of songs that feel important to sing. Doing that inspired me to write again.”
On Give Me All You Got, she says, “I’m laying out some extreme emotional highs and lows, which feels good. Take ‘Brooklyn’ [co-written with guitarist Luke Jacobs]. It’s very autobiographical, and I remember thinking, would I really want to share this? I decided, of course, why hold this back? It’s something that a lot of people can relate to—the acceptance of failure in a relationship, learning from it, and moving forward. ‘Brooklyn’ is also a song about taking a pause in order to really experience what you are feeling, something I find increasingly difficult in this modern era of constant communication and stimulation.”
Rodriguez, who came to attention a decade ago performing with singer-songwriter Chip Taylor, has established an impressive roster of touring, recording, and co-writing affiliations—with Lucinda Williams, Rickie Lee Jones, John Prine, Mary Gauthier, Alejandro Escovedo, guitarist Bill Frisell, and others. Although she has issued three albums under her own name and enjoyed major label support for 2008’s She Ain’t Me, the release of Give Me All You Got marks a giant step for Rodriguez. The album was recorded with her own band and produced by the renowned Lee Townsend, with whom she has worked closely in the past. And the songs—which she wrote, co-wrote, or handpicked from the repertoire of longtime collaborators—establish her musical identity more powerfully than ever before. MORE...
