Oak Cliff native Edie Brickell released her first album with the New Bohemians, “Shooting Rubberbands at the Stars” 31 years ago.
Their new album, “Rocket,” dropped in October.
Brickell, who was born and raised in our neighborhood, appeared on “World Cafe” this past weekend.
She talks about becoming famous — “I was almost embarrassed by our early fame because I thought I hadn’t earned it.” That it was strange to be known so widely for one song, “What I Am.” And how she left the rock ‘n’ roll life to raise her children with Paul Simon.
She says she still has great chemistry and plenty of ideas with her bandmates, who still live in Texas.
Listen to the full interview and songs from the album below.
