    AUBRIE SELLERS LANDS ON COVER OF THE EAST NASHVILLIAN

    Having taken the indie route from the very beginning, it’s no wonder Aubrie Sellers’ first magazine cover would be The East Nashvillian. Having been hailed by Garden & Gun for a “brash bold sound that’s made her one of Nashville’s most electric acts” and Entertainment Weekly as “One To Watch,” the hipper side of Nashville’s culture bi-monthly sent iconic indie rocker Tommy Womack (Gov’t Cheese, the Bis*Quits) to get inside the “World of Garage Country.”“Because I live here, but have been gone so much,” says Sellers, “it’s extra great to be on the cover of The East Nashvillian, because it makes me feel like I’m part of this pretty vital creative community. Tommy Womack, who wrote it, is as rock songwriter who gets music on a whole other level – and the whole photo shoot was just so cool.”Womack writes of Sellers’ reach on her debut, “There’s a sense of rootlessness endemic to her generation, the displacement and uncertainty; the joy, the rage and the seamy day-to-dayness that is a millennial woman’s lot in 2016...her lyrics tell about being a 24-year old woman in 2016 as adroitly as Loretta Lynn told the story of being a mother of three in 1967,” even as he examines influences from the Sonics to Ralph Stanley, Gary Glitter to Daniel Lanois with the seamless that is “garage country.”With “Sit Here & Cry” at country radio, a tour with Tucker Beathard that plays its final 2016 dates this weekend, Sellers is closing her year – and a year that included Bonnaroo and CMA Music Fest in the same weekend -- out on a high note. Having signed with Atlantic Records / Warner Music Nashville in the late summer, they’ve re-released New City Blues with two new tracks, she’s just been tapped for Miranda Lambert’s 2017 headlining tour – and she’s now on her very first magazine cover.

    “It’s great to talk to people who want to talk about the music,” says the songwriter/guitarist. “One of the things releasing my album has shown me is how many people out there share my frustrations, understand feeling overwhelmed and are as tired of celebrity culture as I am...Music is about sharing where you are in life, and that’s what New City Blues was supposed to be about. It felt like they really got it.”Having attracted the notice of “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert,” SiriusXM’s The Highway and NPR’s First Listen, the woman Lone Star Music calls “a new kind of country queen: tough, strong, smart” now finds herself on the front of a magazine that will be distributed throughout Nashville – and the forefront of a new Nashville sound.
