Waxahatchee is the solo folk project of Katie Crutchfield, an Alabama songwriter long steeped in the Rutgers/Philadelphia scenes. Having released albums on Merge Records and New Brunswick’s beloved indie Don Giovanni Records, Crutchfield has carved out a distinct name for herself, both grassroots and now nationally, as a devastating and whip-smart writer and performer.

The live tracks captured are ideal illustrations of her storied artistic strengths. The B-side is her original “La Loose”, showcasing her soaring crystal vocal chops a la Anne Briggs, and the A-side is a powerfully stark cover of Lucinda Williams’ “Greenville” that has been a staple of her live set for years. Of her Williams cover, Crutchfield says

"Playing Third Man was a highlight of my tour last Spring. Waxahatchee has been covering Lucinda Williams's 'Greenville' for a few years, but we never got around to recording it. To have my cover of such a great song be on this single is very exciting for me."
