While Crooked Still takes a break from the road, bandleader Aoife O’Donovan is shifting her attention back towards her solo career. Fossils is the singer’s full-length debut, a collection of folk, bluegrass, and old-timey songs produced by the same man who brought us Tift Merritt’s Traveling Alone and the Decemberists’ The King is Dead.

“I grew up singing a lot of Irish folk music — and folk music in general,” she told us during a recent trip to the American Songwriter office. “My dad is from Ireland. My parents are kind of folkies. I grew up around that kind of music.”

Watch her perform the album’s lead single, “Red & White & Blue & Gold,” in our conference room below.
