_S0A6841It was about a month ago now I was invited to Sera Cahoone’s show out at the Dosey Doe in the Woodlands, Texas.

I’d never heard of her before which isn’t surprising since she comes all the way from rainy Seattle. I’m glad I made it though and I hope she comes back around again…soon.

This tour was riding the crest of her latest release “From Where I Started” which is a collection of fundamental, soulful songs about people and places in her life so far. All the joys and the pains are dealt with as only a true artist can.

Try this one on for size. It deals with the tragic loss of a cousin at the age of 21. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b0boN8LRWoc. Great lyrics and instrumentation don’t often come this way, or this easy. Do I hear Shawn Colvin in there somewhere?..

As a performer, Sera winds her songs easily around her audience. Never ostentatious and always unassuming you’ll find yourself drawn to the artistry and honesty she pours out so effortlessly.

As would be expected, this evening’s set was drawn from the new project, but featured a few from across the span of her earlier releases Only As The Day Is Long and Deer Creek Canyon.

So thanks again Dosey Doe. Keep breaking ground with great artists like this.
