Iris DeMent exemplifies what it means to forge your own path in the music industry. Her independently released 1992 debut Infamous Angel garnered such palpable buzz that it landed her a deal with Warner Bros. and was hailed as an essential album of the 1990s by Rolling Stone Magazine.

Since that incredible start, DeMent has released a series of stellar recordings that have earned her multiple Grammy Award nominations, critical acclaim,  as well as the respect and admiration of fans around the world including a few famous ones like; Steve Earle, John Prine, and Emmylou Harris.

Respected for her trail-blazing spirit, DeMent has never shied away from using her ethereal voice and songwriting craft to showcase introspection as well as to addressing a variety of topics ranging from religion to  politics.

“Grounded in hymns, early country songs, gospel and folk, DeMent's work is treasured by those who know it for its insight and unabashed beauty.”  -NPR
