New album from renowned songwriter Eliza Gilkyson, including duets with Robert Earl Keen and Mary Chapin Carpenter. Eliza Gilkyson is a twice Grammy-nominated singer-songwriter and activist who is one of the most respected musicians in Folk, Roots and Americana circles. Her songs have been covered by Joan Baez, Bob Geldof, The Conspirare Choir, Tom Rush and Rosanne Cash and have appeared in films, PBS specials and on primetime TV. A member of the Austin Music Hall of Fame, and an inductee into the Austin Songwriter Hall of Fame, she has won countless Folk Alliance and Austin Music awards. Home offers more of the intimate, challenging and insightful songs for which she is known, and features a wide range of material that reflect her appreciation for family, home and hearth in a time when those things have become essential to maintain sanity and decency. Cameos include a gorgeous duet with Robert Earl Keen, "How Deep", that asks some of life's important questions, and a sweet duet with longtime friend Mary Chapin Carpenter, "Sparrow", on the appreciation a songwriter feels for fans and friends who inspire the songs into being. The stripped down love song, "Witness" features her guitarist brother Tony Gilkyson (X, Lone Justice, Chuck E. Weiss) and the epic storytelling ballad "Man in the Bottle" about her hit-songwriting father,Terry Gilkyson, featuring snippets of his songs and a cameo with longtime family friend Van Dyke Parks.
