Did you know that folk singer-songwriter Jolie Holland spent some time living in San Francisco? Well, Wednesday night she returns for a headlining show at The Independent, supported by Austin’s rising Jess Williamson for a night of folk, blues, soul and mesmerizing voices. Jolie Holland’s rough-around-the-edges, deep voice has long been a favorite of mine, and she just released a new record, Wine Dark Sea.

Wine Dark Sea is Holland’s sixth full length. Out last month on ANTI-, the album definitively strays from the more forward, country-lick and Americana sounds that Jolie cautiously explored for the better part of her career. Digging deeper and darker, Holland has produced a record that could be characterized in moments as soul and blues, which I can only imagine will surprise and please audiences when she shares this new side of her music with them.
