Iris DeMent

You might recognize her song, Our Town, from the closing credits of the final episode of Northern Exposure and her song, Let the Mystery Be, which was featured in the opening scenes of the film Little Buddha and then became the theme for the opening credits of the HBO series, The Leftovers.   Her second album, My Life, was nominated for a Grammy Award in the Best Contemporary Folk Album category.  

The press on her current release says it all -  “It’s heady, heart-stopping stuff.” - Boston Globe - “As pure and piercing as they come.” - No Depression  "Iris DeMent makes music that celebrates humanity's efforts toward salvation, while acknowledging that most of our time on Earth is spent reconciling with the fact that we don't feel so redeemed." – NPR Music
