ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
THE LONG SLOW DECLINE OF CARMELITA

A woman counsels a bandit hiding out in the hills above the RIO GRANDE...cruel parting words circle in memory like buzzards...dust devils turn the sands...two shadows gently touch on a moonlight walk...a shot rings out in an alley...hungry dogs gather in the street...on a flight from Sonora, a woman kisses a faded photograph and says goodbye to her lover...after three years a woman still feels her lost lover in the night...a girl sleeping in the desert wakes to witness a midnight burial...a bottle crashes through a windshield at a Saltillo gas station and a car goes speeding into the night...a girl pawns her Virgin de Guadelupe for a last fix...a spirit floats down a dark hallway past her own name scrawled on the wall...a Colt 45 bolsters a woman's faith in fate...a distand friend remains true as the tides...two lovers breathe the same air, their shadows make one shadow, but it's only a dream...a woman sings a love song to her guitar...a star falls...it's The Long Slow Decline of Carmelita.



. The Houston Chronicle exclaimed, "(She) combines Spanish and English lyrics and Mexican and Texan musical styles into a dish that is as South Texas and huevos rancheros." Albums such as Outlaws & Lovers, and Live:From Hell to Helsinki have landed her a reputation for artful and unique songwriting, nestling her among some of the greatest storytellers this country has seen including Johnny Cash and Willie Nelson.

On her upcoming release The Long Slow Decline of Carmelita due out early 2005, Bianca does not disappoint her sterling reputation. Every song on The Long Slow Decline...burns with her depth and grace, Bianca De Leon brings all of her listeners back to her Southwest Texas home, sits them down on the porch and tells them of her experiences. Her new album gives each of us a chance to see her world through her eyes-a world full of dusty roads, shady episodes, and of course, romance. In a way, Bianca and her Southwest Texas home are so inextricably connected that presenting one unavoidably expresses the other.
