American singer-songwriter Dar Williams lives at the intersection of pop and folk. She fuses many genres (blues, rock, jazz), resulting in a rather organic sound. She has been making music for over a decade. Her studio album My Better Self finds Dar at an unequivocally brazen crossroads. Reflecting on American politics, the disi
llusionment and apathy of youth, and the female experience, Dar makes no apology for her outspoken beliefs.
Her most recent album (2008) is entitled Promised Land. indieduck.com notes that “Williams turns over relationships in all their misunderstood, misconnected glory, and embraces religion, gender and other complications in her very wise songs. Promised Land draws in themes of nature, as well, and on the whole is a pretty piece of work that ends up feeling upbeat despite itself.” (from Last.fm)
