Mollie O'Brien: Tell It True

"Mollie O'Brien (born October 25, 1952) is an Americana, bluegrass, R&B, and folk singer from Wheeling, West Virginia. She has released a number of Americana albums with her brother, Grammy-winner Tim O'Brien. She has also released five positively received solo albums. ... In 1996, she released her solo album Tell it True on Sugar Hill Records. The album was in the top 10 of Gavin's Americana chart for six weeks, and helped further establish a following of bluegrass and R&B fans. The album received positive reviews, with the Graham Weekly quoting "The album ranges from very traditional material to contemporary songs, from gospel to jazzy to Western Swing, and even includes a wonderful acoustic treatment of a Terence Trent D'Arby pop song...virtually every one of the dozen tracks is a gem with either Ms. O'Brien's vocal shining or the musical arrangements being brilliant, or both" (Wikipedia).
