Kim Lenz & the Jaguars

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.
