Kristie Stremel's post-secondary education was carried out in barrooms across the country as the touring guitarist for Frogpond. She spent two rollercoaster years with that major-label outfit before founding Exit 159 in 1997 and developing her own songwriting voice: a muscular country-rock amalgam of Joan Jett, Lucinda Williams, Paul Westerberg and The Pretenders. This year, Stremel released "10 Years"-a 14-song retrospective that includes two new songs and re-juiced versions of five tunes from her deep catalog. The album's self-effacing lyrics unveil a singer intent on sharing her journey with the world, so it's no surprise that Stremel was equally candid under our podcast spotlight.
