Modern folk siren and Big Jewcy inductee Alana Amram plays music that evokes old time folk and country mixed with the swagger of Exile era Rolling Stones. “Painted Lady” the new album by Alana and her band The Rough Gems, often feels like a cut off the Anthology of American Folk, crossed with a powerful late 60’s Joplin or Patsy Cline vibe which is especially felt on the title track. Amram’s voice is as powerful as any modern female songstress from Neko Case to Clare Burson.

Painted Lady by Alana Amram and the Rough Gems is streaming for free on Band Camp.
