    Ms. DeMent's piano playing and gospel-tinged folk singing are nothing but beautiful inspiration for life's reflective and reverent moments. There is a true feeling of heaven and home within.

    Getting back to her roots, Iris Dement's first album of original music in 16 years is a triumphant return.

Her voice may not be for everyone but is is perfect for the songs that she writes. Listening to Iris sing you will be moved. All I can say is that I hope that I don't have to wait another 16 years for the next album of her songwriting. Expand
