Iris DeMent
Iris DeMent
Since her debut in 1992 with “Infamous Angel,” country-folk singer-songwriter Iris DeMent has been regarded in musical circles as an authentic living legend, the last of fourteen children born in a Pentecostal household in Arkansas, who spent her childhood immersed in gospel and traditional country music.

Boasting an uncanny voice that recalls a grittier Emmylou Harris, Iris DeMent’s “Infamous Angel” immediately established her as a major star on the roots-music scene. Its 1994 follow-up, “My Life,” earned a Grammy Award nomination in the Contemporary Folk category, and her 1996 album, “The Way I Should,” which addressed political, as well as personal themes, brought her a second nomination.

Along the way, several of DeMent’s songs have become cultural touchstones. “Let The Mystery Be” found its way to MTV Unplugged as a duet by David Byrne and Natalie Merchant; “Our Town” was played over the farewell scene in the series finale of “Northern Exposure”; Merle Haggard invited her to tour with his legendary band The Strangers and recorded two of her songs; she has recorded and toured extensively with John Prine; and the Coen Brothers featured one of her songs over the closing credits of their 2010 remake of the classic western “True Grit.”

Last fall, Dement received the “Trailblazer” Award from the Americana Music Association (along with Graham Nash and Van Morrison).
