This alt-country veteran is touring in support of "Exodus of Venus," an emotionally naked album inspired in part by the death of a parent and the breakdown of her marriage to longtime guitarist Tim Carroll.
Uncut praised the album as "her darkest effort yet, a harrowing chronicle of a woman barely keeping herself together," adding "It's also her liveliest effort yet – not to mention her most confidently diverse."
