Selected by CD Baby for their MUSIC FOR LAZY SUMMER DAYS Compilation!
"Known for her scorching blues guitar, Barksdale takes a more reflective approach on this release and utilizes the great tear jerking elements found in country and folk and adds vocal arrangements that border on angelic." - CD Baby
So, you've toured around the world as Michael Jackson's lead guitarist... you've toured as a guitarist and vocalist with Canned Heat... you've performed your music live on Baywatch?... and you're a renowned blues artist with several major international releases - not to mention a top selling blues album at CD Baby... So, what's next? A Country Folk EP!
Becky explores her Texas roots (little known fact that her two great-uncles were members of The Sons Of The Pioneers) with this beautiful collection of 5 original songs.
From the touching sentiment of "I'll Say Goodbye" to the delicate and deeply personal "I've Missed," Becky's voice and guitar shine with emotion and honesty. The intimacy of this 2002 release may be a reflection of how it was recorded. With the exception of Armen Ksajikian's cello performance on "I've Missed," Sean Caffey's pedal steel on "I Can't Stop Loving You", Cowgirl Blues was composed, performed and produced by Becky alone in her studio - with special thanks to Joey Waronker.
Be the first to discover this very home-grown indie release and these soon to be classic songs! - TJ Johnson
