Iris Dement

Iris Dement

Iris DeMent was inspired to write her first song "Our Town" while driving through a boarded-up Midwest town at the age of 25. That song, "Our Town," was played during the closing scene for the final episode of CBS's television series Northern Exposure

Her first album, "Infamous Angel," featured the song "Let the Mystery Be" which was used in the opening scenes of the film Little Buddha and in the fall of 2015 and became the musical theme for the opening credits of the HBO series The Leftovers.  

Her second album, "My Life," released in 1994, was nominated for a Grammy Award in the Best Contemporary Folk Album category.  

She sang four duets with John Prine on his 1999 album "In Spite of Ourselves," including the title track and reunited with Prine in 2016 for his second duets album "For Better, For Worse" and performed on two tracks. DeMent has also sung duets with Steve Earle and Emmylou Harris and has made frequent appearances on Garrison Keillor's radio show, A Prairie Home Companion

The press on her newest album says it all -  "It's heady, heart-stopping stuff." - Boston Globe
"As pure and piercing as they come." - No Depression

"Grounded in hymns, early country songs, gospel and folk, DeMent’s work is treasured by those who know it for its insight and unabashed beauty." - NPR

Opener: Pieta Brown - "Self-styled poetess, folk goddess and country waif, Pieta's music resonates with a seductive simplicity and lyrical grace." - BBC

...moody, ethereal...I will listen...over and over again." - NPR's All Songs Considered
