With high praise continuing to flow for Emma Swift’s debut mini-album in her home country of Australia, positive reviews and press are starting to come in from overseas, with the publication of a fantastic review from the UK’s Three Chords and The Truth website, as well as radio play across more than 30 US radio stations via the syndicated International Americana Music Show and Georgia’s Just Off The Radar program.
David Hughes from Three Chords and the Truth UK described the album today as “a 6 track collection of divine entrancing pure country gold [that] will have you drooling for the half hour it takes to infiltrate your senses…. She has her pulse on the real thing as this pedal steel driven batch of sad songs, drizzled with soul and sung at a luring pace, oozes with golden class from start to finish.”
Scottish born, Brooklyn dwelling radio broadcaster Michael Park played ‘Seasons’ on The International Americana Music Show this week, alongside Canada’s Lindi Ortega and English guitar legend Richard Thompson.
Athens broadcaster Joe Silva included ‘James’ in his playlist for Just Off The Radar this week in an eclectic show that also included Bear In Heaven and Manchester Orchestra.
New York’s Grass Clippings blog featured ‘Bittersweet’ back in July in a section titled ‘New Nashville Sounds’ featuring Kelsey Waldon and Andrew Combs.
The album was recorded in Nashville and produced by Anne McCue and has been released in Australia by Laughing Outlaw Records.
