Margo Price
Margo Price has something to say but nothing to prove. In just three remarkable solo albums, the singer and songwriter has cemented herself as a force in American music and a generational talent. A deserving critical darling, she has never shied away from the sounds that move her, the pain that’s shaped her, or the topics that tick her off, like music industry double standards, the gender wage gap, or the plight of the American farmer. (In 2021, she even joined the board of Farm Aid.)
 
Now, on her fourth full-length Strays, a clear-eyed mission statement delivered in blistering rock and roll, she’s taking on substance abuse, self-image, abortion rights, and orgasms. Musically extravagant but lyrically laser focused, the 10-song record tears into a broken world desperate for remedy. And who better to tell it? Price has done plenty of her own rebuilding—or as she shout sings in explanation on “Been to the Mountain,” the set’s throat-ripping opener, “I have to the mountain and back alright”—and finds herself, at long last, free. Feral. Stray.
 
Moving from the sparse folk of her 2016 debut, Midwest Farmer’s Daughter, into the rollicking roots of its follow up, All American Made, the following year, and, in 2020, into classic rock with Rumors, Price has established herself as a sonic explorer of the finest ilk. Still, she says, “This could be too out-there for people. But I just have this morality where I feel like, it has to be this.”
 
And this does sound different. Louder, lusher. More layered. Price and her band recorded the set across a blissful week in Topanga Canyon, California, at producer Jonathan Wilson’s Fivestar Studio in the summer of 2021. (A smaller second batch would get tracked in Music City, months later.) Wilson, who has helmed sets from Angel Olsen, Father John Misty, and Dawes in recent years, created a space for Price and her band—a longtime troupe that’s been honing their kinetic, even raucous, live show since before Midwest Farmer’s Daughter—to traverse new sounds and influences confidently.

Margo Price
Margo Price has something to say but nothing to prove. In just three remarkable solo albums, the singer and
songwriter has cemented herself as a force in American music and a generational talent. A deserving critical darling,
she has never shied away from the sounds that move her, the pain that’s shaped her, or the topics that tick her off,
like music industry double standards, the gender wage gap, or the plight of the American farmer. (In 2021, she even
joined the board of Farm Aid.)

Now, on her fourth full-length Strays, a clear-eyed mission statement delivered in blistering rock and roll, she’s taking
on substance abuse, self-image, abortion rights, and orgasms. Musically extravagant but lyrically laser focused, the
10-song record tears into a broken world desperate for remedy. And who better to tell it? Price has done plenty of her
own rebuilding—or as she shout sings in explanation on “Been to the Mountain,” the set’s throat-ripping opener, “I
have to the mountain and back alright”—and finds herself, at long last, free. Feral. Stray.

Father John Misty, and Dawes in recent years, created a space for Price and her band—a longtime troupe that’s
been honing their kinetic, even raucous, live show since before Midwest Farmer’s Daughter—to traverse new sounds
and influences confidently.

Album opener “Been To The Mountain” showcases her “hard-living swagger” (The New York Times), while the Mike
Campbell-assisted “Light Me Up” lays down a searing, explicit epic. “Radio,” a buoyant guitar track featuring Sharon
Van Etten, embraces sunny pop melodies. While the dobro- and pedal steel-laden “Hell in the Heartland,” which Price
penned in the immediate, uneasy aftermath of quitting drinking, builds towards a cacophony of distorted vocals and
synthesizers.

Rock and roll, psychedelic country, rhythm & blues, and even bright shiny pop, they’re all there on Strays, but as
each refract through her artistry, that delicate vocal and unhurried delivery, they come out sounding singularly her.
While the last few years have seen remarkable moments of acclaim—a Best New Artist Grammy nomination,
Americana Music Honors, a Saturday Night Live performance, and just about every outlet and critics’ year-end Best
Of list—Price is still hungry. “I still have a lot of drive inside of me,” she says. “I have a chip on my shoulder. It feels
like I still haven’t been able to fully realize all my dreams yet, and that eats me up.” Just wait.
Brit Taylor
When hard times come calling, they don't tap at the door to be invited in. They barge straight in
and wreak havoc. Just ask Singer/Songwriter Brit Taylor who found her idyllic life suddenly
turned upside down, and she was left in a downward spin. It was a new feeling and a scary one.
But she called on her upbringing, her faith and her family for strength, and she dug herself out
with grit and determination and music.

Capturing life and pain with poetic ease and plain honesty is what the emerging Americana
sensation does well. Brit writes and sings about what she lives, what she knows. Real Me, her
debut album being released November 20, is a self-reflective, 10-song LP telling of a journey to
self-awareness. The aptly titled album has a unique vulnerability that is both empathetic and
empowering.

Produced by Dave Brainard, the album is mindfully crafted to capture Brit's pure authenticity
and her Eastern Kentucky roots. By blending twangy guitars, crying steel, emotional lyrics and
sultry vocals, Real Me redefines traditional country music.

Brit knows you can't fake authenticity. Real Me reflects her story and, in some way, it is everyone's story.
