New York Times Magazine Profiles Neko Case

by Mallary Tenore Tarpley

I recently started listening to Neko Case, an alt country singer/songwriter from Virginia. Most of the time when I mention her name to people, they say they’ve never heard of her.

That may change now thanks to a New York Times Magazine piece that ran in Sunday’s paper.

I’m glad to see her getting some publicity. In a way, though, I hope she doesn’t become more mainstream; I like that she’s a bit of a hidden gem in the world of country music.
