Pieta Brown Pieta Brown will be phoning in to talk with James Moore at 2:15pm about her upcoming show at Cafe Paradiso (next weekend Friday May 23rd), accompanied by Lucinda Williams' guitarist and bandleader producer/guitarist Bo Ramsey. She'll be performing in New York City this Saturday night at the Bowery Ballroom.

Pieta is an artist who brings together the unvarnished humility of Loretta Lynn, the frank, modern rock punch of P.J. Harvey, the country sass and poetry of Neko Case, the urbane sophistication of Norah Jones or Rickie Lee Jones, and the soulful Southern grit of Bobbie Gentry, and - coloring it all - a deep abiding saturation in folk and blues that’s beyond her years.
