Lucinda Williams

Barney Hoskyns, MOJO, January 1999

THE WAY Lucinda Williams sighs "Hi" down the phoneline from Florida instantly communicates a deep fatigue. She and her band have just motored up from West Palm Beach to Orlando, where they have a gig at the local House of Blues. They’re not even staying the night in Disneyville, but pushing straight on to Birmingham, "the greatest city in Alabam’". Reason enough for a 45-year-old singer-songwriter to sound weary.
