Accomplished multi-instrumentalist Rhiannon Giddens landed the cover of American Songwriter‘s July/August 2019 issue. Journalist Caine O’Rear describes Giddens as a “[Kaleidescopic] panoply of musical and intellectual voices.” The article continues to herald Giddens as a prominent dignitary and voice of classic and contemporary Americana music.
The article also discusses Giddens’ latest studio album in collaboration with jazz musician Francesco Turrisi called there is no Other, and her versatility and adaptation, transcending genres. In particular, O’Rear admires her boundary-breaking from native folk idioms, borrowing elements of Arabic and Mediterranean music.
