Love in Flats
Big soul. The Owen Township native started singing and playing the piano at age 7. She is releasing two records in 2008: "A Cache In The Warehouse Floor" and 'Daytime Fireflies.' Never ceasing to deliver cutting lyrics and punchy vocals, the wordsmith writes with an honesty that belies her age. Her previous releases include 2005: Lines, 2006: Potent One, The Barefoot Session, 2007: Love In Flats. Traces of Hoagy Carmichael, Otis Redding, Janis Joplin, Tom Waits, and Solomon Burke float through her records as they surely floated through her childhood. Still, Hurd's live show is the best way to catch her.
