Here's a new look at the great band with the lead singer with an amazing voice. Alynda Lee Segarra who leads Hurray For The Riff Raff is the voice in question. They were here before in 2010.
Just one more listen and you'll be hooked.
Hailing from New Orleans, Louisiana, Hurray for the Riff Raff is a mellow, indie/folk/country/alternative band lead by singer/song-writer Alynda Lee Segarra’s lulling voice.
Their debut album, “Look Out Mama” retains a sense of melancholic yearning, but mostly feels more upbeat, with a more wild honky-tonk sound coming in at key songs. I could hear a strong influence of Lucinda Williams and Emmylou Harris. But that is not a criticism.
This young lady has an amazing voice.
And I really liked the yodelling on this first track, nobody yodels anymore and I miss it.
