What surprises me the most is how much I love her new song, "Move Me." It's a move away from straightforward Americana and much more into the territory of mainstream pop rock. Watkins' voice is still bluegrass. I don't think she could ever lose that quality if she tried. But musically "Move Me," while being pop, has this slight hard rock edge to it. It sounds like something I'd hate, but instead I truly love this song.
Sara Watkins' new album, Young in All the Wrong Ways, is due out July 1 on New West Records. You can watch the video for "Move Me" below. For more information on Sara Watkins, check out her website.
