Brigitte DeMeyer’s first new album since moving to Nashville from the Bay Area last year (and her fifth overall), Rose of Jericho is a delight, mining all the finest elements of Americana, blues and roots rock music while avoiding the songwriting and musical clichés that weigh down so much similarly labeled music. On tracks like the folky “One Wish,” the greasy “”Amen Said the Deacon” and the atmospheric blues “Sip Molasses,” her Southern soul delivery brings to mind Bonnie Raitt (whom she cites as an early influence) and Emmylou Harris. But on “Alright A-Coming” and “Say Big Poppa” — both of which hark back to old-school jazz and swing — her sultry delivery and laid-back phrasing is more reminiscent of vintage Rickie Lee Jones. The title track is also the most strikingly original, a pulsing, piano-driven funk-blues that features one of the coolest guitar (at least we think it’s guitar) solos we’ve heard in a while. Drummer extraordinaire Brady Blade co-produced the record, which features stellar contributions from a who’s who of Nashville’s roots scene: Mike Henderson, Sam Bush, Will Kimbrough, Al Perkins, Chris Donohue, Mike Farris, the McCrary Sisters and John Deaderick. And while you’re enjoying the show, you can check out the bedazzled creations of Nashville’s clothier to the stars, Manuel.
