Back in December, Lelia Broussard wowed us with her cover of the White Stripes’ “Dead Leaves And The Dirty Ground.” Since then, a lot has happened for the 21-year-old Louisiana native. Broussard, whose debut album Masquerade was released earlier this month, now finds herself in the Top 8 of the Rolling Stone Cover Contest. Click here to cast your vote.
Which is why we were thrilled to have Broussard on board as an American Songwriter correspondent at SXSW this year, warpaint and all. Check out this video, where she interviews Darwin Deez, Allie Moss, Jukebox The Ghost, Atomic Tom, and Kevin Devine.
