Odessa Settles has been singing Civil Rights music since she was a child in the 1960's, and her performances on Nashville's "Tokens Show" have resulted in numerous show-stoppers, even more than the Grammy Award winners and the Country Music Hall of Famers we've had on stage. In this Most Outstanding Tokens show compilation, we are gathering Odessa's best performances thus far, and having the original multi-track live recordings re-mixed and re-mastered to bring you a beautiful and moving album.
The album includes the following tracks:
- Woke Up This Morning
- Turn Me Around
- The Lord's Prayer
- Hold to God's Unchanging Hand -- with the Settles Connection
- Kum Ba Yah -- with the Settles Connection
- This Little Light of Mine; We Shall Not Be Moved; Down by the Riverside -- with the Settles Connection
- His Eye is on the Sparrow
- Hallelujah (Leonard Cohen)
- Swing Low, Sweet Chariot -- with Suzy Bogguss
- Oh Freedom
A very special compilation from Music City, from the show that TheNashville Scene describes as a "grass-kicking shredfest" that is a "huge success," with "genre-bending creativity," and The Tennessean calls "one of a kind," and a "virtuouso ensemble." Music critic Peter Cooper recently opined that Tokens "is amazing. It's amazing that [Tokens] has integrated music, humor and scholarship into something so seamlessly entertaining." Other reviewers have called Tokens "spectacular," "provocative," and a "marvel." Sojourners opined that “…if A Prairie Home Companion ever moved South and got religion—or at least went to divinity school—it might look a lot like TOKENS.” And fans describe Tokens as "UH-MAZING," "awesome," "unforgettable," and "wow!"

Risks and challenges
Depending upon the number of projects in the queue for the company doing the post-production mixing, it's possible that the final album production could be delayed by one month, but this seems unlikely, as we've given ourselves plenty of time to get the project completed in a timely manner. Should this unlikely scenario arise, this will not affect the timeline for the Ryman show dates or house concert dates.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
