Carolyn Wonderland Discusses Janis Joplin Comparisons

11/25/2013
.
(The Blues) Texan blueswoman Carolyn Wonderland has learned to live with comparisons to Janis Joplin and even got over her fear of playing the late vocalist's material in public.

Wonderland accepts it's an easy connection to make, because she's female, has long hair, plays guitar and delivers powerful vocal performances. She tells Culturemap: "I used to think it was merely lazy journalists Texas plus girl plus signer equals Joplin but it turns out, it's a universal reference. I can think of far worse things to have said, but nobody can ever live up to such expectations."

That's the reason, she says, that she and many musicians like her wouldn't dare to perform the late icon's material in public. Wonderland herself only broke the taboo in 2009, more than 15 years into her career, when she performed What Good Can Drinkin' Do at an American Music Masters show in honour of Joplin's legacy. Find out what she had to say here.
