Odetta Hartman is a young woman keeping the spirit of Old New York alive. With a heart-stopping voice and wide-ranging instrumental talent - she carries cowboy soul into a new era where country can clash with computers, and bluegrass isn't afraid of bass. With her first strictly solo record, 222 -- an experimental, bedroom-produced hybrid of folk, musique concrète and psychedelia -- Odetta Hartman and her partner, sound artist and producer Jack Inslee, have created something completely original and unsettling: badass banjos, detuned violins, superstitious stories and eerie soundscapes all give backing to beautiful vocal stylings that range from sensual to spooky.
