Zoe Muth and the Lost High Rollers 

Seattle Weekly has called Zoe Muth that city's version of Emmylou Harris. It's high praise, but quizzical because of the Pacific Northwest's history of producing singer/songwriters with more of an affinity for distorted guitars and an angsty lyrical approach. Muth was raised on old-school rock, but discovered the "Anthology of American Folk Music" in high school. The rural narratives and down-home twang of artists such as Chubby Parker and Buell Kazee spoke to her and heavily influenced her own songwriting style. Before long, Zoe managed to procure a solid set of backing musicians and started making records. The latest of which, this summer's "Old Gold," is another installment of honest and passionate "retro-country" music.
