On the country side of rock and roll, Kami Nixon cut her teeth on Willie Nelson and Hank Sr., and it shows. She's also an indie songwriter who plays with rocker Bill Spooner and that shows too. These songs showcase her voice (which has been described as 'breathy' and 'modern') and her humorous-yet-poignant, right-on-the-money songwriting talent. She plays guitar, flute and hand drum on this record, and Bill plays nearly everything else. Boone Spooner lends his amazing percussion abilities. So, it's great, original music, that might feel a bit familiar. After all, when an artist's influences include Johnny Cash and John Denver, there's going to be a quality to the music that just feels right. And this does. Kami's song 'Plans,' on her EP 'Boys named Jon,' was featured on KQED. She has played the Mamapalooza (Moms who Rock) Music Festival, in addition to venues in London, the San Francisco Bay Area, Minnesota, San Diego and other markets. Kami is a former journalist who writes about the surprises and experiences of life as a single mom. She jokes during shows that she plays 'Single Mom Rock.' A classically trained flute player and a former student of San Francisco's Blue Bear School of American Music, Kami made her transition into rock and roll official by playing in the cover bands 'Moo,' and 'the Virgins.' This is great stuff.
