Lullabies & Cautionary Tales - CD

A Western Gothic noir rodeo of Americana Roots, Alt Country and old school Rock n Roll.

Christina’s crystal clear alto voice and unique tremolo vibrato richly contrasts with the electric twang of a vintage Fender Telecaster and the acoustic soul of a weathered Gibson J200.
Combined with a tight, sparse rhythm section moving from cowboy waltzes to dance shuffles to hard driving road songs she paints a musical landscape that is as much felt as it is heard.
With a sound blending Roots, Americana, Alt Country & Old School Rock n' Roll, she calls Western Gothic, E. Christina Herr’s songs are a weather report drifting between the romance and tragedy of the past and the sometimes stark reality of the present.

Lullabies & Cautionary Tales opens with the western gothic “How To Fall” , a compassionate ode to a troubled friend...

Followed by “One Road”, a melodic journey that takes a turn off the paved road into the desert and wanders down to the end of the sky.

“Whiskey Flats” a song of lost love and learning what it means to feel truly alone.

“In Memory” is an upbeat homage to 60’s rock songs.
The old time cowboy country waltz “Going Back” reminisces about a once home town now a ghost town.

“Devil Wind” comes in like a lion and goes out the same way.

“Showdown” sings of stolen love and the cost of betrayal.
The hard driving intense cadence and eerie background vocals of “The Ballad of Clara Mae”, ponder the idea of “what is a backyard and who's is it anyway"?

“Only Believers” with it’s Latin flavor evokes a sleepy southwestern town where Billy the Kid and Pat Garrett would have swapped shots of whiskey as they decided each others fate.

“Sidewinder” whips across the sand leaving a trail of questions about lies and truth.

The images in the song “Waiting” slide by the window view of a slow moving train crossing the American landscape.

The album ends with the rockabilly anthem “Doggone Lonesome” an upbeat shuffle in tribute to Hank Williams, Johnny Cash, Elvis, Gram Parsons, Emmylou Harris, Janis Martin, Wanda Jackson and all Christina’s early musical inspirational heroes and heroines.

She has been compared to the likes of Emmylou Harris, Lucinda Williams and Chrissie Hynde.
The band, Wild Frontier, reflects influences from Neil Young, Crazy Horse to Don Rich, of Buck Owens band, to the Spaghetti Western soundtracks of Ennio Morricone.

Christina & Wild Frontier make their homes in the Land of Enchantment, New Mexico.

Western Gothic Aprons

Apron - Frida Kahlo - Reversible 2 Aprons in One! - One Size Fits Most

Western Gothic Aprons Handmade by E Christina Herr in New Mexico.

100% Cotton.
Machine washable. 
This folk art Apron has images inspired by the amazing Mexican artist Frida Kahlo.

Frida is one of my favorite artists and here in New Mexico she is a real heroine!
The fabric design of the appliqué pocket is by Alexander Henry and is based on Frida's fascination with Mexican Folklorico - including heart, eye and hand Milagros - an Artists Palette - monkeys - parrots and doves - all in her beloved garden. 
Placement of the figures will vary slightly.
The large applique on one side is a big clothes pin size pocket that goes from one side to the other! Suitable for your cell phone, cooking or art supplies or (you guessed it) clothes pins!
I have added a rich dark red iridescent gathered ribbon trim I made myself to the bottom of the pocket to add contrast.
The Pocket applique is sewn on a soft fabric with grey polka dots on a black background. 
This fabric remind me of the wonderful cloth that flamenco dancers use to make their costumes!
Fully Lined and Reversible! 2 Aprons in One!
The reverse fabric is an elegant black and contrast beautifully with the grey and black polka dot fabric ties.
I have long collected vintage aprons and patterns and took my favorite ideas and combined them to come up with this original design.
