You Are Not Alone - Mavis Staples

from the album You Are Not Alone (2010)

Everybody has a handful of songs that they turn to when things get tough.  For me, "Three Little Birds" by Bob Marley and a slew of Dylan songs usually do the trick.  Add this one to the list.  Written and produced by Wilco's Jeff Tweedy, the music provides a balanced mix of texture and space allowing Mavis Staples' vocals to grab you.  Inspiring.


  1. Having a couple of days here where the hope and faith foundation feels like a 6.0 quake may hit. I think all I need is a big mama hug from this lady here. At least the words help. Thanks E.B.
