Biography

Michelle Shocked - traveller, troubadour, a “picker-poet,”as they say in Texas. As a young feminist, she left Texas to travel, Kerouac-style, and was caught up in Reagan-era grassroots politics. Her musical career was ignited by a bootleg recording made around a Kerrville Folk Festival campfire on a Sony Walkman. Released in England as ‘The Texas Campfire Tapes’ without ...

Product Description

Amazon.co.uk

Ambition is certainly something that Michelle Shocked is not lacking. Many would also claim that as she is releasing three albums on one day, she is not lacking in foolhardiness either. There have been instances of artists releasing two albums at once (Tom Waits, Bruce Springsteen, Bright Eyes), but three at once is unique, if unsurprising given Shocked’s fondness for trilogies. Given the stylistic differences between the three as well, it’s small wonder that these are independent releases with no major backing - such a display of generosity would send any company pulling the purse strings tighter than a noose.

As a demonstration of Shocked’s ability to move masterfully between genres, Mexican Standoff is very successful. From the off, all the elements previously on show in her Latino-tinged work are present, from the mariachi trumpet to the impassioned Mexican backing vocals, replaced in the second half of the album by her more familiar southern Blues style. --Thom Allott

5.0 out of 5 stars Shocked !! 19 Nov 2005
By Russell A. Sanders - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Another great album from a wonderful artist. The cantina songs are great !! The Blues songs are awesome...and I'm not usually a "blues" fan. I'm beginning to think this woman is a musical genius.

3.0 out of 5 stars quite a combination 11 Oct 2005
By J. R. Bellamy - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
The first half is Mexican cantina songs. Not bad songs, just not my favorite genre. I really bought this CD for the blues songs in the second half; they are excellent. Now if we could just get her to do a whole CD of blues or blues-rock.
