DALLAS, TX-

Jaime Wyatt captivated with a set of rock ‘n soul featuring songs off her latest album, Felony Blues. “We played in Austin last night and we’ve slept about three hours,” she confessed before adding, with a radiant smile, “We’re really glad to be here.” The crowd felt the same way, drawn in by her bittersweet stories of wayward souls in songs like “Wishing Well.” Wyatt grew up on a steady diet of Johnny Cash and Merle Haggard. (She covers “Misery and Gin” on the album.) The grainy details in her songs are convincing — she’s not merely referencing outlaw country conceits. As a teenager struggling with addiction, Wyatt learned what it was like to be on one end of a plea deal. We bandy about the phrase “music saves,” but the way Wyatt relates it in “Your Loving Saves Me” over swooping pedal steel lines, is saturated with an authenticity that’s vulnerable and moving.”
