Neko Case

A restless, boundless spirit of the US indie scene since the mid-1990s, Neko Case delivers rootsy Americana, blues and soulful alternative country with a rich voice and distinctive fiery red hair. Raised in Tacoma, Washington, Case left home as a 15-year-old and spent her art-school days playing drums in local punk bands in Vancouver before taking inspiration from country and rockabilly on debut album 'The Virginian' (1997). Once promising to never write a love song, Case instead became an honest, funny, third person storyteller, delving into fairy tales and myths on 'Furnace Room Lullaby' (2000) and 'Blacklisted' (2002) and winning huge critical acclaim for 'Fox Confessor Brings the Flood' (2006). Also a part of celebrated Canadian indie rock act The New Pornographers, Case's fifth solo record 'Middle Cyclone' (2009) brought huge success, reaching number three in the US charts and was nominated for two Grammy Awards. She followed it with 'The Worse Things Get, the Harder I Fight, the Harder I Fight, the More I Love You' in 2013 and affirmed her reputation as a feisty, strong alternative country star, cut from the same cloth as Loretta Lynn, Brenda Lee and Wanda Jackson. In 2018 she released her first solo record in five years, 'Hell-On', which received critical acclaim marking her return with gusto.
