Wanda Jackson showed she's still the Queen of Rockabilly on her latest visit to the Continental Club in October, which makes Kim Lenz the genre's No. 1 lady-in-waiting. Or perhaps something bigger. If it seems like it might be difficult to prompt Rolling Stone into saying you sound like old Jackson flame/tourmate Elvis "if he had been female," Lenz had no trouble at all. The redheaded Southern California native studied at the University of North Texas, then settled for a spell in Dallas, where she put together backing band the Jaguars and quickly shot up through the Southwest's rockabilly ranks on the back of 1998-99 HighTone albums Kim Lenz & Her Jaguars and The One and Only. The 2000s were relatively quieter save 2005 HighTone swan song Up to My Old Tricks Again, but last year Lenz came roaring back with It's All True. She produced the album herself, released it on her own Riley Records and returns, as she sings, "Shined Up and Ready to Shout." Bonus: Now holding down the Jaguars' guitar chair is former Fabulous Thunderbird and True Blood veteran Nick Curran.
