Cary Ann Hearst - Dust and Bones
Charleston, South Carolina, product Cary Ann Hearst is an artist I have long admired both for her music and for being an all-around sweetheart. I first became aware of Cary Ann when she opened a run of Jump, Little Children shows several years ago, and she has since garnered a strong following in her home region. Cary Ann is a little gal with a great big voice and one hell of a knack for roots music. Her country-rock is tinged with punk, blues, and gospel, not unlike Atlanta's own Anna Kramer. This is music for dirt roads and front porches, sure to induce foot-stomping and sing-alongs.
Her current release, Dust and Bones, was released last summer but has only recently become available for purchase online. Here are a few tracks from the record courtesy of Cary Ann's website:
Cary Ann Hearst - Dust & Bones

Cary Ann's Dust and Bones is available from CD Baby. For more, see her MySpace.
