5.0 out of 5 stars Classic June 17, 2006
Format:Audio CD
If you like Cat Power, Beth Orton or Neko Case you'll love this album. Its honest country flavored indie folk. Here's the official description:

Sera Cahoone is a twenty-nine year-old singer songwriter based in Seattle, by way of Colorado. Armed with her favorite Martin guitar, Seras music reflects her love of both old country-western and modern lo-fi. Her unique sound bridges the gap between the two genres, like a musical love child of Buck Owens and Cat Power. The Strangers music editor, Jennifer Maerz, states Cahoone has a truly gorgeous voice, a dusty country style delivery...(her) music gives me the chills...slow, warm, simply beautiful.

Sera has spent the past year working on her first full-length album. It was recently completed with help from musician friends: Jay Kardong, Jeff Fielder, Eric Himes, and Sarah Standard and Mat Brooke from Carissas Weird. The ten songs on her album feature a wide array of sounds including pedal steel, banjo, dobro, violin, and harmonica. Her album tells the quiet story of simple truthsheartbreak, longing, and self-discovery.

Sera began writing songs on the guitar in high school, but actually got her musical start at the age of eleven, when her mother finally gave in to her daughters prodding and bought Sera her first drum set. To the tune of her familys exasperation, she taught herself the drums by playing along to the radio in her bedroom. By thirteen, Seras mother was driving her to Rocky Mountain-town bars to play open blues jams with musicians thirty years her senior.

In recent years, Sera was the drummer for indie favorites Carissas Wierd, touring with Iron and Wine and The Long Winters. She has also played with Panda and Angel, Lisa Orth, and L.A. musician Patrick Park, completing two U.S.

5.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely Refreshing, Beautiful and Pure November 5, 2008
Format:Audio CD
I don't profess to be a well-rounded music lover but this is one of the most unique I have ever heard. I am not a country music fan by a long shot but filtered through this Indie-Pop Whatchacallit, and Sera's crooning, I'm just woo'ed in. I love every track except the first few seconds of track 6. It reminds me too much of Hee Haw! I listen to this album over and over. It's especially good to listen to when you are in that quiet-introspective-mellow-relaxed-tea-sippin mood.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic American Music January 16, 2008
Format:MP3 Music
This is a refreshing compilation of solid American music untainted by the corporate music factory. From first track to last, you won't be disappointed. Sera's singing is eerily beautiful, while the instrumentation (especially the pedal steel) sooths your soul. "Couch Song" and "Last Time" are the highlights. I suspect we'll be hearing more from Ms. Cahoone in the future.
