Dori Freeman is about as bona fide as an Appalachian artist can be: she was raised among a family of musicians in the mountains of Southwest Virginia.
The fourth studio album and most recent release, Ten Thousand Roses, from the Galax, Virginia based singer-songwriter showcases an artist who has cemented an inimitable signature sound while establishing her capabilities within a wide variety of styles. Her soaring alto and singular style are on fine display throughout this collection of nine originals and one cover.
She wrote the songs during the pandemic, when, like millions of others, spent more time outdoors. “I really observed and appreciated nature during that time,” she says. Natural elements such as storm clouds, wildflowers, and spiders show up as motifs throughout the record, which examines everything from being deeply in love with someone to realizing that you don’t need another person to complete you.
