According to friend and longtime partner Tommy Womack, Sideshow Love is not only the best showcase for Kimbrough's guitar work, but his best collection of songs yet.Brigitte DeMeyer has a wonderfully natural feel for soul-steeped, blues-infused roots music. She has built a solid foundation with her first five albums, collaborating with giants of the Americana world like Buddy Miller, Sam Bush, and more recently, guitarist/songwriter Will Kimbrough.The daughter of Belgian and German immigrants, she was born in the Midwest, and at a young age moved to Southern California with her family where she started latching onto rootsy sounds, from Etta James, Mavis Staples and Sly Stone, to her discovery of The Allman Brothers, Steve Earle and Patti Griffin.
