She’s best known for her eclectic work with the band All the Pretty Horses. She also plays solo acoustic shows — calling it “punk folk” — which is what she’ll do for Homegrown. A new acoustic album, Flesh and Wire, recorded at Sacred Heart Music Center, is set for future release. The three-song 12-inch record Take My Shoulder came out in March.
