Singer/Songwriter Jodie Manross Returns to Knoxville With New CD

Former Knoxville singer/songwriter Jodie Manross hasn't quite been able to shake this town entirely since her move to New York a few years ago. She's coming back to Knoxville later this month for one of two CD release shows, this one at the Glowing Body's Round Rug series on Friday, Oct. 16. (The other will be at Cafe Vivaldi in New York.) The show starts at 8 p.m. and will feature Greg Horne, Laith Kelainey, and Nathan Barrett.

Manross is celebrating the release of her third full-length album, The Myth of Solid Ground. The disc is available for pre-order at
