You might think Fayssoux sings songs, but really she's singing invitations. Invitations to a kind and lovely south, to empathy and caring, to good humor and love. Invitations to feel something, to hear stories and smile together. Invitations to grace. Emmylou Harris, Rodney Crowell, Linda Ronstadt, Tom T. Hall and many others have accepted her invitations. Harris, who calls Fayssoux "one of my favorite voices," featured Fayssoux on classic albums including "Pieces of the Sky," "Quarter Moon in a Ten Cent Town," and "Blue Kentucky Girl." That's Fayssoux, duetting with Harris on 1978's song "Green Rolling Hills" and harmonizing on 2005's Grammy-winning "The Connection." Crowell adores her, and likens her voice to "charm, elegance, whippoorwills and magnolia dewdrops." Ronstadt writes glowingly about Fayssoux in her "Simple Dreams" memoir. In the early 1980s, Fayssoux stopped singing her invitations, closeting that marvelous instrument for more than a decade. But in 2008, she made her recorded debut as a solo artist on Red Beet Records with the exquisite "Early." Now she s back with "I Can't Wait," a gorgeous set of songs, five of which Fayssoux wrote and all of which are elevated by her singular, dusk-shaded invitation of a voice.
