LO CARMEN ‘LOVERS DREAMERS FIGHTERS’ ALBUM LAUNCH
“Sultry vintage soul and cosmic country sounds …Carmen is simultaneously reflective and a storyteller” Glide Magazine
Lo Carmen’s evocative way with words, her gilded vocals and poetic candor possess a timeless radiance, a sense of wanderlust, of restlessness, a singularly defining romantic vision of the world and her place in it. To launch Lovers Dreamers Fighters, her sixth solo album to date, Carmen will perform her unique brand of atmospheric Americana with a full band - featuring musicians from The Cruel Sea,The Mess Hall and the Holy Soul along with her father, piano man Peter Head.
Written alone at night on the porch of a house she occupied in rural Georgia, recorded in Nashville and released on vinyl and digital platforms through her own label Chiquita Records late last year, this collection of songs assures her own niche in the Americana firmament. Self produced, engineered by Grammy Award winning David “Ferg” Ferguson, known for his work with Sturgill Simpson, Johnny Cash, and Jake Bugg, and featuring contributions from many of Nashville’s musical elite, the songs soar and sway, evoking a kind of aural intimacy and sublime satisfaction. Confessionary tones pervade the album as a whole, from the duet “Sometimes It’s Hard,” with folk luminary Bonnie Prince Billy, to the dreamy melodies of “Hold Your Lover Close,” “You Never Learned How To Dance” and the slow burning title track, all of which find her haunting, honeyed vocals gently entwined with the silken strains of pedal steel guitar. Rarely has an artist conveyed emotion and tenderness in such a subtle yet assured fashion.
Clash Magazine described Lovers Dreamers Fighters as “divine… a real charmer… soaked in experience, in the kind of poetry that only comes from a life lived”
Highway Queens proclaimed it ‘one of the most distinctive Americana albums of the year…achingly atmospheric … you can’t fail to be swept off your feet’.
Since 2002, she has released a string of critically acclaimed solo albums -- Everyone You Ever Knew (Is Coming Back To Haunt You)(2015), The Peach StateEP (2013), It Walks Like Love (2009), Rock’n’Roll Tears(2007), Slight Delay(2004), and Born Funky Born Free(2002) -- as well as a 2013 collaboration with her father, fittingly entitled The Apple Don’t Fall Far From The Tree. Forming her first band, the Honky Tonk Angels, at age 20, she went on to perform with musicians from many of Australia’s most acclaimed combos –the Dirty Three, The Bad Seeds, the Holy Soul, the Mess Hall and The Cruel Sea in various combos, sharing the bills with a diverse array of artists (Mick Harvey, Secret Sisters, Handsome Family, Kinky Friedman, The Drones, Beasts of Bourbon), touring throughout Europe, Australia and the United States and is currently based in Los Angeles.
“Lo Carmen reaches the parts other songwriters can’t touch.... I put her on the same pedestal as Kris Kristofferson, Tom T., or Merle Haggard.” Something You Said
