Equal parts songwriter, performer, storyteller, and musical historian, on her new record, the songstress (whose last release made it to the first round of Grammy nominees) weaves together threads of traditional jazz and blues, Dixieland, Western swing, and classic country into a melodic tapestry.

About the event
In addition to her first-round Grammy nominations, Krüger was named “Best Female Vocalist” by the Dallas Observer in 2006. Her previous release, Songs from a Dead Man’s Couch, was named one of the Top Five DIY Picks by Performing Songwriter Magazine. The Dallas Morning News said, “She has grown into one of the most eclectic singers in the area. Imagine a female Tom Waits, produced by Daniel Lanois.” She recently received three nominations for Fever in the 2019 Independent Music Awards in NYC. In the fall of 2013, Krüger was chosen by Patty Griffin to open four shows for her fall tour of American Kid. Griffin was highly impressed by Krüger, saying from the stage that she was a “solid gold songwriter.”
Krüger is a multi-instrumentalist and plays piano, guitar, banjo, mandolin, harmonica and pedal steel guitar. And although she was unable to tour at the time, she was even called upon by Jack White to perform pedal steel in his all-female band, “The Peacocks.” With a wealth of life experiences from her solo journeys, Krüger is also an engaging storyteller and essayist. She has contributed to Public Radio International’s “This American Life,” and even made a fan out of the show’s host Ira Glass.
