Who's Afraid of Leticia Wolf?

Who's Afraid of Leticia Wolf?
For singer-songwriters in this town, it’s hard to make a mark. The glut of first name/last names illuminated on the city’s marquees has stigmatized the idiom to such a degree that the story of making a name for oneself in Nashville is one of escaping the Bluebird-ified pigeonhole. When considering the amount of talent it takes to accomplish such a feat, that isn’t such a bad thing. Take for example local chanteuse Leticia Wolf. Fans of artists ranging from Mary Lou Lord to Feist would do themselves a favor by giving her newest offering The Fire and the Flood a listen. The record addresses the concerns of a quarter-life crisis with a tone that shifts from dramatically dire to warm and resolute, reflected sonically by dense but tasteful arrangements featuring a healthy dose of lush strings and wet organ sounds. They’re driving when they need to be, yet laid back and understated enough as to never distract from the soulful smoky singing voice that is easily Wolf’s greatest asset.
