Singer-songwriter brings modern sensibility to Americana roots music.

SHIFT 2019

Iris Dement is a voice for an America seeking roots and meaning. As Cory Henry marries retro-funk with Afro-Futurism, so Dement brings a modern sensibility to the timeless pentecostal gospel twang of her native Ozarks. Twenty-seven years after she pioneered what we now call “Americana” with her debut album Infamous Angel, she is still sharing powerful stories and shining a light into dark places.
