Adrienne Young on NPR's All Things Considered

Adrienne Young- for the Grateful Web

Adrienne Young will be featured on today's edition of NPR's "All Things Considered".  Check with your local station for broadcast times of Elizabeth Blair's interview with Adrienne.

Adrienne Young recently released Room to Grow on her own AddieBelle label (5.22) with distribution through Ryko.  Recorded in upstate New York at Levon Helm's studio, in Virginia at Sound of Music Studios and mixed by Jason Lehning in Nashville, Room to Grow reveals the maturation and sensitivity that have evolved in Young's songwriting and vocals.

Branching out from the themes that defined her last effort, 2005's The Art of Virtue - a study and exploration of Benjamin Franklin's 13 Virtues - Room to Grow is more introspective in its focus but wider in its aim.  As in the past, Young tackles heady subjects - longing, regret, fear, desire, contentment, purpose - but manages to artfully sidestep the melodrama, extending instead a rational but hopeful approach to the pilgrimage of life. Young's NPR piece will also focus on her commitment to sustainable food and farming, her involvement with the Food Routes Network and the Community Gardening Association.   Young will be donating a portion of proceeds from Room to Grow to the Community Gardening Association.
