After a Grammy nomination, and top 10 albums in The New Yorker and Time Magazine, North Carolina native, Alt-country singer/songwriter Tift Merritt took hiatus with a piano in Paris and came home with her best and most personal songs to date, released on Another Country .
"Merritt is one of the best singer-songers you haven't heard of yet." -- Time Out New York
"...a smart, sardonic quality reminiscent of Jackson Browne ...the soulful tenderness of Norah Jones...the bubbly folk melodicism of Feist... a new and compelling direction for Merritt." -- Associated Press
"Sweet Southern depression from a French flat. Deceptively sharp tales of hearts in distress, implying fierce emotions just under the surface." -- Spin
"4 stars **** Merritt's first solo album won her critical acclaim; her second got a Grammy nomination. Neither were as good, nor as fully representative as her third... Here her wonderful voice, smooth and warm with throaty twang and unforced power, has free rein to do what it does best on 11 fine new songs." -- Mojo
