Goddess

Shawna Russell hails from Okemah, Okla., but her promising debut is contemporary country soaked in the influence of 1970s country-rock and California pop—the drummer on Goddess is L.A. session veteran Russ Kunkel, the lone cover is of Firefall’s 1978 rock hit “Strange Way,” and the role model most clearly evoked throughout the album is Fleetwood Mac’s Stevie Nicks. It’s a winning fusion that evokes the era’s sense of mystery while remaining grounded in the present—especially on the scorcher “Fire in the Desert,” which Stevie might have been proud to call her own.
