Francesca Brown knows how to take you back to the bygone era of dusty country & western. Off her new Live from Quarantine project, “Rode So Fast” barrels straight ahead, with her voice curled around the edges and a timbre that’s just undeniable.
“I know there was a time when we touched souls,” she sings, almost as a hushed whisper. She’s a songbird, there’s no doubt, in the way she floats as sweetly on her melodies as a hang-glider overlooking the countryside. It’s a majestic sort of display.
