Third Man Records has announced a new addition to their roster: Lillie Mae Rische, the fiddler in Jack White’s touring band. Rische put out singles via TMR in 2014 with the “Nobody’s” b/w “The Same Eyes” 7″, and she’s currently working on her debut solo album, which will be produced by Jack White.
“Lillie Mae has been performing on stage since she was 3 years old,” White said in a press release. “She is an incredible writer who can play an array of instruments and has paid her dues from the honky-tonks on Broadway to stages around the world. She is a beloved artist in Nashville, and I think it is safe to say that she is one in a billion. You wont find anyone else quite like this woman no matter how long you live.”
Rische added: I”‘m proud to have become a part of the Third Man family, where there is no shortage of hard work and dedication to creating and making available the music we love so. I’m forever thankful to Jack for believing in me and giving me a chance and all the freedom I’ve needed to make this album.”
White is performing on A Prairie Home Companion with Chris Thile on Saturday (10/15), and Rische will be playing fiddle and singing alongside him. Here’s what she sounds like:
