It’s not every day that a small-town Texas girl gets to record with Grammy Award-winning producer John Carter Cash, who has produced legends such as Loretta Lynn, George Jones, and Willie Nelson, but Country Blues artist Kasey Lansdale is the exception. Her current release, “Living in the Moment” from the EP Leave Her Wild, promises to be an even bigger success than her previous recording.
In 2013, she was given a unique opportunity to record her first studio album, Restless, in the historic Cash Cabin Studio with John Carter Cash. Producer Mike Clute assisted in starting the project, with Lansdale, then Cash added the final touches.
The CD features 11 tracks highlighted by her smoky twang with seven of her own self-penned songs including “Sorry Ain’t Enough” and “Blame You for Trying.” She is often compared to either Reba McEntire or Patsy Cline. Cash says of Kasey, “I believe in Kasey and what she is doing musically and as a human being. She has the drive, talent and spirit to make it happen….” Thus, he produced her sophomore CD in its entirety.
Lansdale will once again tour in support of the record. She successfully performed both nationally and
internationally following the release of Restless at large events and festivals such as SXSW, the Halogaland
Music Festival in Norway, and The Piacenza Blues Festival in Italy. The second half of the Restless
Roadtrip, took her across the nation in early 2014.
