Euclid-based singer-songwriter Quinn Sands celebrates the release of her first CD, Driving Through the Rain, at the Barking Spider Tavern on Wednesday. She’ll play at 10 p.m.

Sands, who describes her Americana-style sound as “Lucinda Williams meets Christine McVie and they hang out with Carole King,” has a confident, mature style that more or less lives up that description. Her burnished vocals do justice to her fluid songs, which are tinged with country, blues and folk.

Sands is backed on the album by members of former Cleveland band the New Madrids: guitarist Joe Landes, bassist Adam Rich, drummer Ernie Richmann and multi-instrumentalist Dave Mann.

She recorded and mastered the album at Cleveland’s Mann Wolf studios.

After performing the band-backed show at the Barking Spider, she’ll go back to playing solo on the local coffeehouse circuit where she’s a regular. —Anastasia Pantsios
