Lucinda William’s is everyone’s collaborating darling who released her first album Ramblin’ in 1978. In her thirty plus years in the music business, she has released nine studio albums. Some might consider her a bit methodical or even a perfectionist based on the span of years between album releases. She started out in the country genre that was occasionally tinged with the blues.
She is a genre shifting chanteuse who has been nominated for ten Grammys in the following musical categories:
Williams received early critical recognition and the respect of her musical peers, but it took considerably longer for her to raise public awareness. This was due, in large part, to her renowned fastidiousness and the sporadic release of her albums. The pendulum swung with the release of her 1998 album Car Wheels on a Gravel Road. She has received three Grammy’s.
