Review

Raised in a Mennonite community in Indiana, her mother a pastor, where she regularly attended quilt auctions (not, I suspect, as much as an influence as her parents being folk musicians), Gustafson-Zook came out in her mid-20s, something that inevitably informed her debut album, ‘Sin Of Certainty’. Where I Wanna Be, her second, just voice and guitar, follows a similar autobiographical path embracing a breakup, a less than wonderful spring in Nashville, and a period of living in her Honda before settling in her hometown of Goshen, Indiana., peppered with stories about school crushes on gay boys, asking the weatherman for guidance and of the feeling of inferiority in meeting your idols, all in her pure, slightly reedy voice.
