Lucinda Williams (Lake Charles, Luisiana, 26 de xineru de 1953) ye una cantautora estauxunidense de música rock, folk y country. Llogró tres premios Grammy, y foi considerada la meyor autora de cantares d'Estaos Xuníos pola revista TIME en 2002.

Carrera musical[editar | editar la fonte]

Con pocu más de venti años, tocaba nes ciudaes texanas d'Austin y Houston un amiestu de folk, rock y country. En 1978 treslladar a Jackson, nel estáu de Misisipi, pa grabar el so primer discu, pa Smithsonian/Folkways Records. Tituláu Ramblin', consistía nuna colección de versiones de temes de country y blues. Dos años dempués, en 1980, publicó Happy Woman Blues, con temes de creación propia. Nengún de los dos álbumes tuvo demasiada repercusión.

A empiezos de la década de 1980, treslladar a Los Angeles, en California, onde empezó a llabrase una reputación coles sos actuaciones, tantu llétriques como acústiques. Más tarde instalóse en Nashville, Tennessee. En 1988 editó un nuevu álbum, col sellu Rough Trade Records, tituláu cenciellamente Lucinda Williams. El discu senciellu "Changed the Locks", alrodiu de la rotura d'una rellación, foi radiáu n'emisores de too el país y ganó-y dellos siguidores ente les xentes del negociu de la música, ente ellos Tom Petty, quien grabaría más tarde una versión d'esti cantar.

La so siguiente grabación, Sweet Old World (Chameleon, 1992), ye un álbum de tonu murniu, nel que tán bien presentes les temes del suicidiu y la muerte. El so principal ésitu mientres los primeros años de la década de 1990 foi como autora de cantares. Mary Chapin Carpenter grabó en 1992 una versión de "Passionate Kisses" (del álbum Lucinda Williams), que foi un gran ésitu nes llistes de country. Por esta tema, Williams llogró'l Grammy al meyor cantar de country en 1994. Gracies a esto, pudo ganase l'apreciu de la crítica, pero'l so ésitu comercial siguía siendo bastante moderáu. Tenía fama de demasiáu perfeccionista, y de trabayar bien adulces na sala de grabación. Ello ye que pasaron seis años primero que publicara'l so siguiente discu, anque apaeció como artista convidada n'álbumes d'otros músicos y participó en dellos discos colectivos mientres esti periodu.

La so siguiente grabación, bien esperada, apaeció en 1998, col títulu de Car Wheels on a Gravel Road. Esti discu, que foi premiáu col Grammy al meyor discu de folk contemporaneu, apurrió-y finalmente l'ésitu comercial que tantes vegaes habíase-y negáu. Amás de recibir escelentes crítiques, l'álbum vendióse perbién. Tuvieron gran repercusión sobremanera dos tarrezas, dambos editaos en discu senciellu: "Still I Long for Your Kiss", que formó parte de la banda sonora de la película de Robert Redford The Horse Whisperer, y "Can't Let Go". Dempués de la publicación del discu, Williams realizó una xira con Bob Dylan, y otra como cabeza de cartelu, pa la promoción del so álbum.

El so siguiente discu, Essence (2001), foi tamién un gran ésitu. Esti álbum, abondo más senciellu que l'anterior tocantes a la so producción, averó a Williams al públicu de la música alternativa. Unu de les temes incluyíes nel álbum, "Get Right With God", apurrió-y en 2002 el so tercer Grammy, pola meyor interpretación femenina de rock. Trátase d'una atípica tema de gospel-rock que cuntó cola contribución col órganu Hammond del músicu de country alternativu Ryan Adams.

En 2003 publicó World Without Tears, y en 2005, un discu en direutu,Live @ The Fillmore. West, ta dedicáu a la so madre, apocayá finada, pa la qu'escribió más de 27 cantares. El discu, editáu'l 13 de febreru de 2007, contién 13 temes, y el so estilu ye abondo similar al de World Without Tears. El 14 d'ochobre de 2008 publicó "Little Honey", y en 2011 "Blessed".

En 2014 publica Down Where the Spirit Meets the Bone un álbum doble d'una calidá estraordinaria.[1] Con un equipu qu'inclúi a Tony Joe White, Greg Leisz, Jonathan Wilson o Doug Pettibone y a los Imposters, la banda d'acompañamientu d'Elvis Costello, qu'apurren la so base rítmica per mediu de Pete Thomas y Davey Faragher. Un corazón trevesáu por un cuchiellu afata la portada d'esti álbum que la so temática nutrir de les andanadas de la vida, el sufrimientu que provoquen y l'actitú cola qu'enfrentase a elles. Empieza'l discu con Compassion, una adaptación d'un poema del so padre (Miller Williams) con guitarra acústica onde reina la sobriedá. Polo xeneral la música de la cantante ta decisivamente influyida polos soníos del country de raigaños, tal que puede apreciase en East Side of Town, o na ritmica This Old Heartache. En It’s Gonna Rain, más sobria y doliosa, va apaecer la voz fondo y delicao de Jakob Dylan como bon contrapuntu. N'otres temes como West Memphis o Something Wicked This Way Come y Everything but the Truth tamién destaca'l llabor de les guitarres. Otros cantares a destacar son la épica Cold Day in Hell, la sentimental Wrong Number, la tranquila When I Look at the World, cola so reivindicación del olvidu de los errores, o One More Day, na que sobresal la seición de metales.

El so álbum de 2016, Ghosts of Highway 20 ye doble, con trelce nueves cantares, más una versión de Factory de Bruce Springsteen, en que sigue'l duelu pol so padre, el poeta Miller Williams, presa del Alzheimer nos sos últimos años y l'idea de mortalidá, al tener conciencia que yá vivimos más de lo que nos queda per delantre.[2]

El discu xira redolada a la carretera como metáfora vital. Lucinda Williams fala de ‘’moteles en cayente y valles publicitaries destiñíes, coches usaos en vienta y depósitos de chatarra’’ na tema titular. Trátase tamién d'un realcuentru col pasáu: ‘’Quien soi agora ye quien fui entós. Nun hai dulda dalguna, soi pariente de toles pantasmes a lo llargo de l'autopista’’. En Doors of Heaven confiesa que quiciabes se cansó de vivir y pide que-y abran les puertes celestiales, onde ‘’voi pasiar na gloria, cuntándo-y a toos la mio hestoria una y otra vez’’. En Luisiana Story describe la infancia y el complexu de culpa que inculca una severa educación relixosa, y en Can’t Close the Door on Love, referir a la empatía pa superar los fracasos. Otres temes a destacar son Place in my Heart o Bitter Memory.
