Curb Records announces the signing of award-winning group Little Feather, whose debut single premieres today on Huffington Post . The single “Hillbilly Love Song (Hey Y’all)” is available here. This autobiographical debut single release showcases the band’s organically-optimisitic acoustic playing, and the lead singer’s vintage-modern vocal skills. The forthcoming self-titled album will be released September 29.
The acoustic driven band is fronted by lead vocalist Liz Sharpe. Steeped in tradition, Liz is a coal miner’s daughter with a family lineage that connects the young Pikeville, Kentucky singer to award-winning traditionalist Patty Loveless and to the Queen of Country herself, Loretta Lynn.
Liz’s resumé reads like a New York Times best seller including lending harmonies for such diverse acts as Holly Williams and Michael Bolton. She penned a song titled “Float Along, Little Feather,” and upon careful listening she knew she was onto a sound that she wanted to explore deeper. She and her husband, Aaron Spraggs (drums), approached Dylan Rowe (bass player), Sam Brooker (rhythm guitar and harmony), Shannon Campbell (guitar, mandolin, banjo, harmony and Glen Campbell’s son), and Pat Boyer (guitar and slide). Thus, Little Feather was born. Take one listen to the music and you’ll hear why this new generation of rustic, heart-on-the-sleeve sound is quickly attracting the ears of many listeners.
The easy-going, fun-loving band has been blowing up social media with their innovative “Drive-Thru Concert” series on Facebook and YouTube. They literally pile into a van, order a meal, and then pick and sing their way to the drive-thru window causing impromptu reactions by employees who can’t help but start dancing and singing along with them. The videos, which have amassed nearly two million views, have gone over so well that earlier this month Little Feather enjoyed their first taste of success by winning a Silver Telly Award in the Music Video category at the 38th Annual Telly Awards that honors the best in film and video.
“Words can’t express how happy my band and I are to share our music with the world,” says Liz Sharpe. “The music has been incubating for awhile now, but Little Feather is getting ready to fly!”
Little Feather’s self-titled debut album on Curb will be released on September 29. To learn more visit Little Feather. Follow them on Instagram @littlefeatherband, Twitter @lilfeathermusic and
