This Sunday at the Tractor Tavern: Zoe Muth

Zoe Muth

Zoe Muth: Guitar, harmonica, vocals

Zoe Muth’s twang is so authentic it’s hard to believe she was born and raised in Seattle. In passing, it may be easy to attribute the country factor to her exceptional mandolin player(Ethan Lawton) or the smooth and ever present pedal steel(Dave Harmonson). But truth be known, It’s her Dolly Partonesque lyricism and high sweet vocals which drive this record, clearing a place for Muth and her Lost High Rollers among some of the best up and coming interpreters of classic-style country music around. She nails the turning of a good clever country phrase withZoe Muth zero irony and infinite sincerity. Traces of her influences, from John Prine to the Louvin Brothers and Lucinda Williams are evident, but these songs are hardly derivative. Muth has a knack for writing tunes so true and familiar you feel like they’ve been around forever. If she keeps writing them like his, they will.  –Kim Ruehl
