You’re The One is singer/songwriter/multi-instrumentalist, Rhiannon Giddens’ 5th album and first full band release in over 6 years. The album, which is her first album of all original songs (all written or co-written by Giddens), used to be produced by Jack Splash (St. Paul and the Broken Bones, Valerie June, Solange) and features guest appearances from Jason Isbell, Leyla McCalla, and Eryn Allen Kane.
Over the course of her career, Rhiannon Giddens has established herself as one of the crucial necessary artists on this planet. Her mission has been to lift up people whose contributions to American musical history have in the past been erased, and to work toward a more accurate working out of the country’s musical origins.
That work has led to massive press recognition and more than one GRAMMY wins; a McArthur “Genius” grant, web hosting quite a lot of podcasts and television shows, amongst countless other initiatives
