Folks have been waiting for the new album from Ferron, and here it is. Turning Into Beautiful, has just been released–the first studio recordings in almost ten years–and she will be playing at Joe’s Pub on Wednesday night. As the press kit says, “Ferron has danced in and out of the spotlight. She is nothing less than an icon of the women’s music movement having pioneered a concert circuit that paved the way for artists like Michelle Shocked, Suzanne Vega, Tracy Chapman and Ani DiFranco.” Ain’t that the truth. I can’t wait to hear this.
