Song Premiere: Kathy Mattea, “St. Teresa”
By: Chris Steffen

[…] Mattea’s upcoming album, Pretty Bird, finds her taking on Joan Osborne’s “St. Teresa,” a haunting character sketch of a woman Osborne regularly saw in Manhattan’s Lower East Side who sold drugs on the street with her baby nearby in a stroller. The track is highlighted by Mattea’s non-judgmental presentation of Osborne’s wary lyrics, guitarist Bill Cooley’s nimble fretwork, and mandolin performed by producer and frequent collaborator Tim O’Brien. Pretty Bird is due out on September 7, and Mattea has tour dates booked into 2019.
