It is the album she was born to do, what with her mother’s west Texas roots and her father’s Mexican American background, but she arrived at this point by collecting her own identity along the way: first classical violin, then Americana fiddle and country vocal duets with Chip Taylor. The beauty of this album is in the details. “Llano Estacado” is an emotional examination of the effects of a broken immigration policy set to what she calls a “cowboy shuffle” that she delivers by she switching between Spanish and English accented by her beautiful west Texas drawl. I don’t think I have ever heard anything express so powerfully the kind of bi-cultural existence so many of us live. ” — NPR
