Still Got the Farm
An Arcata, CA based performer and songwriter, Lila Nelson has been writing songs since her single digits. A true poetic intuition--her unconventional voice conveys at once the joy and pain of the everyday. 'Still Got The Farm' pulls from songs spanning a ten year period. The recording is co-produced with Ian Caliendo, who accompanies on mandolin, guitar, and mbira. 'Great songs with poetic tendrils that cling...her environment as a writer is environment itself...she's talented!' -Loudon Wainwright III, Singer/Songwriter/Actor 'Freewheelin' lyrics, melodies that darted and dove like sparrows, some fine harmonica playing to boot...I had to shake off her spell...She's fantastic!' -Mark Erelli, Singer/Songwriter.
