Patricia Vonne: Guitars and Castanets

Oy, mama she's sultry.

If you're in the mood for hot Tex-mex influenced folk rock, check out this siren: Patricia Vonne.

She's got a very soulful voluptous voice that I find quite appealing and I think the tunes she sings in Spanish shows this off best. With a barage of collaborators (Jon Dee Graham and Rick Del Castillo just to name a couple of faves), the music on this CD is toe-tappingly catchy, energetic and very accessible to all audiences. Definitely perfect for get togethers and such. I met her and her husband Robert LaRoche of the Sighs (from Virgin Records...there are a couple other indie bands with the same name) very briefly at party in Austin. They were sweet but what struck me was how incredibly attractive they both were. Goodness.

Speaking of which, you may also have recognized Ms. Vonne as the character "Dallas" from the movie Sin City. Her song "Treame Paz" was also featured in the Robert Rodriguez movie Once Upon a Time in Mexico.

Listen to:
"La Guitana de Triana"
"Rebel Bride"
