monday morning music: tall white horse
posted by soe 7:39 am

Dad is in charge of buying music for us for Christmas, and this year his selection for me was Rita Hosking’s album Are You Ready?

I was unfamiliar with her work, but it turns out Dad picked her out because she was the winner of the Dave Carter Memorial Songwriting Contest at the Sisters Folk Festival in Oregon this fall. We both share a love for Dave Carter’s songwriting, so it makes sense that this would be an artist worth investigating.

She has two albums out currently with a third on the way and seems to perform live shows mostly in her home state of California (with a few forays to Oregon), so if you live out on the West Coast, I’d suggest checking her out while you can still see her in small venues.

I like the album and hope to offer a fuller review of it later this week, but, in the meantime, here’s one of my favorite tracks, “Tall White Horse,” off the record:
