Carrie Rodriguez

Carrie Rodriguez plays fiddle on only three songs for her second solo album, She Ain't Me (Manhattan). Yet her fiddler's vocabulary of old modal melodies centers her songs about faraway loves and spiritual prospects, bringing concision and gravity to every one of them.

Ms. Rodriguez chose collaborators well: she wrote with Mary Gauthier, Gary Louris from the jayhawks, Dan Wilson from Seminsonic and the producer Malcolm Burn, who enfolds her Americana with resonant electric guitars and steadfast march beats. Behind the sorrows and longing is a determination that's grounded, implicitly, in tradition."
