April's Artist to Watch is singer-songwriter Margo Price.
Price has been living in Nashville since 2003 and recently released her highly acclaimed ten song Midwest Farmer’s Daughter on Jack White’s Third Man Records. It’s her first solo album, however Margo has been part of an emerging and vibrant Americana music scene out of East Nashville the last few years. She and her band revive a variety of 60s and 70s twangisms and the songs are stories of heartbreak, emotional pain, and release.
Selling almost everything they had to make the record, Margo and her husband Jeremy Ivey went to Sun Studios to record a knockout of an album. Website
One of this year’s SXSW highlights was Margo at the NPR Music showcase; you can see videos of that performance here
