KIM LENZ & THE JAGUARS
Yes, It's All True: KIM LENZ is back.
The titian-haired, vivacious Los Angeles-based singer-songwriter-guitarist established herself as the top modern rockabilly songstress with a pair of widely praised albums for Hightone Records and rapturously received performances across the States and in Europe; Rolling Stone raved, "If Elvis had been a woman, he probably would have sounded just like Kim Lenz."
After a recording and performing hiatus that left fans panting for her return, Kim is back in the groove with her best recorded work yet, the album It's All True, which she produced herself and is releasing on her own Riley Records imprint. The new collection is a flaming slab of fuel-injected contemporary rockabilly that handsomely shows off Kim's sass, energy, and romp-stomping vocal chops. It secures her position in the small pantheon of great female rockabilly singers that includes Wanda Jackson and the late Janis Martin – singers with whom Lenz has shared many a stage. And it displays the genre's diversity and impact.
The new album features the fearsome instrumental firepower of the reconvened Jaguars – guitarist Nick Curran, bassist Jake Erwin, and drummer Scotty Tecce – and a guest vocal appearance by Southern California's soulful rockabilly maestro Big Sandy. The 12 tracks include seven Kim Lenz originals, a track co-written by Kim and Big Sandy, a number crafted expressly for Kim by the Lucky Stars' Sage Guyton, and two rampaging covers.
Back in the game and ready to rock, Kim Lenz and the Jaguars will support It's All True with live appearances around the country in the spring and summer of 2009. The album is available at retail (via Burnside Distribution), at concert dates, and from Riley Records.
Trailer Queen is a Classic Country/Honky Tonk band based in Phoenix, Arizona, founded by singer/songwriter Brea Burns. Backed by some of the best Classic Country and Rockabilly musicians the city has to offer, Trailer Queen has become a prominent force in the Arizona Country music scene.
Originally hailing from Southern California, music was a part of Brea's life from the start. Her father was a 35 year veteran in the record label industry, and her mother a songwriter and musician, giving Brea a unique perspective of both the business and creative side of music. The family moved to Nashville, Tennessee when she was 14, and it is there that the rich history of Country Music began to shape the direction she would go with her own songwriting and performing. Brea's sound is reminiscent of Country greats such as Loretta Lynn, George Jones, Wanda Jackson, and the like; yet presented in way that is accessible and exciting to the modern listener.
Currently residing in Phoenix, Arizona, Brea and her band Trailer Queen have had the honor of opening for some of today's genuine Country artists; including as Dale Watson, Wayne Hancock, and Ray Lawrence Jr, among others. Check the 'Shows' section for local and national performance dates!
