A while back the downloadable “song of the day” from The Current, a service of Minnesota Public Radio, was a tune by Inara George. Inara, as in Ināra? Is she Latvian?
No, but her name is. The Los Angeles-based George got her first name from a Latvian friend of her parents, according to an interview in SF Burning.
Her late father, Lowell George, was a member of the 1970s rock band Little Feat, according to The New York Times. And her godfather is Jackson Browne.
George’s musical style is described as alternative, folk-rock and pop. Her latest album is An Invitation, released on Everloving Records.
More information on the singer is available from her Web site, www.inarageorge.com.
