Lucinda Williams is an Americana/alternative country singer/songwriter who rose to national prominence with the release of her universally-acclaimed self-titled third album in 1988. Williams began her ascent to music stardom by tirelessly recording music in a traditional country and blues style since 1978, despite never truly receiving much attention for her efforts. However, following the release of an eponymous album in 1988, Williams would not only receive the national attention she deserved, but a track off the album, "Passionate Kisses," was covered and recorded by Mary Chapin Carpenter in 1994, earning Williams a songwriting Grammy that year for "Best Country Song." Since then, Williams has managed to maintain a successful career as a singer/songwriter and was even named "America's Best Songwriter" by Time magazine in 2002.

Often deemed the godfather of punk, Jonathan Richman has been a highly influential figure in the music world since the early 1970s. After trying and failing to make it as a musician in New York City, he returned home to Boston and formed the band The Modern Lovers. A turbulent project that included future members of Talking Heads and The Cars, the group rose as an archetype of proto-punk during its short-lived original existence from 1970s to 1974. Richman used the band as a musical experiment, eventually evolving the punk rock outfit into a 1950s-influenced rock and roll band and, finally, to a primarily acoustic act with world influences. The last shift in The Modern Lovers' sound would form the basis of Richman's solo work, which he began releasing in 1975.
