Our Town lyrics by Iris Dement

Posted by Backyard Urban Gardening on Saturday, October 06, 2007

I discovered the music of Iris Dement by accident, but her music has touched a part of me that I didn't know existed. Iris Dement sings folk, gospel and country music genres and writes most of her own lyrics. Her singing reminds me of Allison Kraus and Emmylou Harris, but I believe her writing is one-step better.

I love Iris Dement. I discovered her by accident, too.

I first saw her and heard her singing in the movie, SONGCATCHER starring Aidan Quinn.

Great movie! I suggest you rent it if you can find it.

Thanks for the movie recommendation. I definitely check it out.
