Iris DeMent

Grounded in hymns, early country songs, gospel and folk, Iris DeMent’s work is treasured by those who know it for its insight and unabashed beauty. As noted by NPR, “Iris DeMent makes music that celebrates humanity’s efforts toward salvation, while acknowledging that most of our time on Earth is spent reconciling with the fact that we don’t feel so redeemed.” Merle Haggard dubbed her “the best singer I’ve ever heard” and asked her to join his touring band, and David Byrne and Natalie Merchant famously covered her “Let The Mystery Be” as a duet on “MTV Unplugged.”
