Calling her music “Kentucky jams melded with jangly folk rock,” Cawood invites listeners on a journey to a bygone era, back to her homeplace. The Cawood settlement of the 1700’s was later inhabited by the hundreds of migrant coal workers in the camps that sprang up in Harlan County, Kentucky when the big fossil fuel industry boomed. Cawood’s roots are as deep as a cast iron skillet is strong. Imagine Mama frying up a Sunday chicken supper while Pappy scratched out banjo tunes on the front porch. This rich and rustic history can be visualized, heard, and felt on her debut solo album Bullet in the Cabin Wall.

Cawood’s vocal delivery varies between simple and twangy to downright powerful. Her own sound blends influences of Stevie Nicks & Bonnie Raitt’s topped off with a touch, maybe more than a touch, of Lucinda Williams & Iris Dement. Cawood wrote or co-wrote eight of the dozen songs on Bullet in the Cabin Wall.
While the title song deals with the feuding history of her Appalachian family, the first single, “Deep Down in Your Bones,” looks inside one family, one troubled mother-daughter relationship. Cawood examines the true story of doomed western swing band leader Spade Cooley from Satan’s perspective. Several songs, on the other hand, explore the pull the hills retain on its natives.

Cawood lived a cover band musician’s lifestyle while balancing a job and family. She is a survivor. She has endured several divorces and love relationships. Then The opioid epidemic wreaked total havoc, sucking the life blood out of any semblance of normalcy for her. No stranger to turning to music when life gets mean and knocks you off your feet, she developed a passion to give back to the community that saved her daughter’s life. And hence, Hope Loves Harmony was born. She writes songs with parents of addicted loved ones to help with healing. She advocates for social change surrounding issues of mental illness, poverty and how these relate to drug abuse and addiction.
