A Visit With the Bluesy Country of Tift Merritt

Songwriter Tift Merritt

Raleigh, NC-based singer-songwriter Tift Merritt seems to be constantly on the move. It’s not just the life of a touring musician, it’s that her music refuses to sit still in the nice little alt-country box that people wanted to put her in when she began making albums in 2002. And over the years, we’ve had visits from Tift that have seen her traveling from across the country and from across the street. Literally. For the moment, she’s back in our studio today to play some songs from her soon-to-be-released 2017 album, called Stitch of the World.
