* Required Fields

If the sum of a singer can be found in the songs, Custer LaRue is an intelligent, introspective person who is no stranger to the gamut of human emotion. The songs she chose for this collection don't let you pigeonhole her much more than that - they're songs of love and loss, of fun and deception and heroic triumph. And they all sound as if LaRue were born singing them.
Finding such songs and giving life to them is a pursuit LaRue never plans to abandon. "I know less than one-hundredth of one percent of the magic of what it's all about, but whenever I do my work in this, I get wonderful benefits. That's one of the benefits from having my curiosity."
