Eliza Hardy Jones opened for Grace Potter last weekend in Austin before joining the main act as the keyboardist. Her voice is captivating, drifting between soothing and haunting. The second line of “Criminal”—“I’m a liar, I’m a fraud, I’m a criminal at heart”—hooked me, and it kicks off my new favorite album for wet, dreary afternoons, like the one in D.C. today.
