Our World Cafe: Next artist this week is Jess Williamson, a raw folk singer from Austin, Texas. She released a new album on Jan. 28 called Native State. It's a spare, personal experience that often finds Williamson with the simple accompaniment of a single instrument. The title refers to Williamson's attempts to get back to basics after moving back to Austin.
