FF Music: Patricia Vonne

I first heard Patricia Vonne on the Roots Rock Radio Podcast a couple of years back. The track Rebel Bride, a blistering Tex Mex Hard Rock tune, was played on the show and I just had to hear more. Her album Guitars and Castanets turned out to be one of the better finds of the last decade for me. It's filled with Latin tinged roots rock. She has a natural and dramatic voice that carries both the harder rock numbers and the softer ballads. Texas, her home state, oozes from not only the lyrics but the music it's self. I have checked out her other albums, and they seem to be lacking a focus, an energy and a vibe that Guitars and Castanets carries. I still have hopes that she will produce another album as good as Guitars and Castanets and it's been a while since her third album Firebird came out and I hope that she has something new in the works.
