Mockingbird by Allison Moorer
Allison Moorer’s new album,“ Mockingbird”, is delightful. The new album features one original song written by Allison Moorer, (the title track), and 11 covers. All written by female singer-songwriters. She has material from June Carter Cash, Patti Smith, Nina Simone, Kate McGarrigle, Gillian Welch, Joni Mitchell, Ma Rainey, Shelby Lynne, Julie Miller, Cat Power, and Jessi Colter. Choosing to record only songs by females is certainly an interesting twist. I feel this collection of songs is a respectful tribute to the female songwriting genre. I think Moorer is an artistic voice worth hearing, she sings beautifully.
