    AUBRIE SELLERS’ NEW CITY BLUES OUT TODAY

    Already receiving showers of critical praise, Aubrie Sellers’ releases her acclaimed New City Blues on Atlantic Records/Warner Music Nashville today. With The Philadelphia Inquirer proclaiming, “Sellers steps to the head of the class of new Nashville female singer/songwriters,” the dark haired guitarist has been building to this moment all year.

    Defiantly committed to doing things her way, Sellers spent three years writing and honing the songs on what The Boston Globe deemed “a marvelous debut record” and The New York Times hailed for the way it “puts Southern-rock muscle behind her gentle voice.” With the original hard-charging 14 tracks being supplemented with intimate one take covers of the Beach Boys’ “In My Room” and the Zombies’ “The Way I Feel Inside,” the deluxe edition provides a well-rounded look at the influences that went into the birth of Garage Country.

    “My influences come from so many places,” says the singular Sellers. “I have talked a lot about Led Zeppelin, Ralph Stanley, Screaming Jay Hawkins. The extra tracks give people a sense of how I hear these songs beyond the record, and the way records can be whatever you make them.”

    The critics agree. Rolling Stone said, “Heavy twang and fuzzy feedback might seem like strange bedfellows, but Sellers shows how sweet it sounds to break the rules,” while Cosmopolitan proclaimed, “Blues is a thudding, rock-tinged tale of growing up and heading out on your own, complete with a biting critique of today’s beauty- and boy-obsessed culture” and Garden & Gun raved about “a brash bold sound that’s made her one of Nashville’s electric acts.”

    Produced by Frank Liddell (Miranda Lambert, Pistol Annies, David Nail), New City Blues is mined from Sellers’ life. Capturing the hope, rage, beauty and cynicism of coming of age in the 21st Century, songs like the jagged “Paper Doll,” the yearning “Like The Rain,” the urgent “Just To Be With You” and the wildly ironic “Sit Here & Cry” suggests that today’s young women are more than somebody’s eye candy.

    Having spent the past couple years in a Yukon playing dates, Sellers has road-honed these songs with strings of her own shows and opening stints with Marty Stuart, Chris Stapleton and Hayes Carll, as well as festivals from Stagecoach to Bonnaroo, CMA Music Fest to ACL.

    After a wait, New City Blues is finally available again today.
