"There's something instantly comforting about the name, once you meet the woman. It's the name of a singer, a fighter only in the sense that she cares about the sort of world we live in, and the sort of music she brings to people. . . . Rocky Gaines comes from Texas, a big place, and full of many different cultures, a place where you sing country if you're country, or the blues if you're black. Well, this woman is black. And she's country, blues, and folk, too. But her music is something else, warm, acoustic, intuitive, rich songs. Music that's been forged by experience, by time and by travel."
"Rocky Gaines?" Mr. Los Angeles asked. "She's from a little Texas town called Schertz. She's sung all over: Germany, Washington, D.C., Toronto. And now L.A." Los Angeles Magazine
So many influences.
So little time.
