In "Rise Of The Fall", Drury’s world-weary but thoroughly alive songs and performances recall such artists as Lucinda Williams, British neo-soul star Amy Winehouse and that beloved British indie-rock band of the 1980s, the Smiths.
Recorded in New Orleans at Music Shed Studios, the 12-song collection of 'Mississippi grit & New Orleans groove' encompasses country, folk, rock, pop and classic New Orleans R&B.New Orleans' local cultural gumbo thoroughly flavors her new album. “Different elements came out,” she says. Drury is especially pleased with the variety of music in "Rise of the Fall", her eighth album. “A little folk and country. And the stuff we did at the end is more rocking, live-sounding.”
