Listen Up! Dorthia Cottrell – “Song For You” (Gram Parsons)

Dorthia Cottrell

Dorthia Cottrell steps out of the din of her doom metal band, Richmond Virginia’s Windhand, to stroll the subtle climes of folk and Americana for her self-titled debut solo album (March 3)

Her take on Gram Parson’s “Song For You” (hear below) is a daring choice, and she pulls it off beautifully. A single, simple acoustic guitar strummed around her heart-breakingly expressive voice she gives Gram’s treasure a new lustre.

“Song For You,” a cover of Townes Van Zandt’s “Rake” and 8 originals comprise the album.
