Though a Chicago native for nearly two decades now, Jodee Lewis was raised in Osceola – a town of 800 people in the Missouri Ozarks. Her childhood home was down a secluded dirt track, set amongst 190 acres of woodland, where days were spent running through the trees, building forts and secret hideouts.
She grew up in a household where Dolly Parton, Waylon Jennings, Patsy Cline and EmmyLou Harris were fixtures on the radio and these country, honky-tonk and Americana roots still shine through in her own music.
Her new single, Buzzard’s Bluff opens with a haunting chill that quickly becomes an anthemic march. Listen below.
