Rhiannon Giddens is best known for her Grammy-winning country, blues, and old-time music band Carolina Chocolate Drops where she plays violin, banjo, and is the lead singer. She began her recent solo career in 2013 and the songs on her album, says Giddens, “are all facets of the human condition.” Taken together, they answer the question Twyla Tharp posed at the beginning of Giddens’ solo adventure. Tomorrow Is My Turn is a composite portrait of “Ruby,” of America, and of Giddens herself, whose turn is right now. Tomorrow Is My Turn was recorded in Los Angeles and Nashville, with a multi-generational group of players that made the musicians come together and create the feeling of a true band. In early 2014, Giddens recorded for Lost on the River: The New Basement Tapes alongside Elvis Costello, Marcus Mumford, Taylor Goldsmith and Jim James. The album was produced by T-Bone Burnett and is a compilation of partial songs written by Bob Dylan that were never released. In February 2015, Giddens released her debut solo album, Tomorrow is My Turn, on Nonesuch Records. Also produced by Burnett, the album includes songs made famous by Patsy Cline, Odetta, Dolly Parton, and Nina Simone, among others.
