The Peach State EP

by Lo Carmen



“...stark country-soul and shimmering blues ...a direct line to the heart that showcases her glorious voice “ No Depression

Earlier this year, Lo spent a few months living in the backwoods of the deep South, USA, during an un-ending heatwave, where she rescued an abandoned, battered (and very collectable) old Stella parlor guitar buried between toasters and chairs in a Goodwill on the highway for the grand sum of $4.94, gave it a spit, polish and shine, took it on home and put it to work whipping up a short suite of stark acoustic songs inspired by The Peach State.

Recorded with David 'Ferg' Ferguson - the man behind the desk for all the seminal Johnny Cash American recordings - at the East Nashville Butcher Shoppe studio he co-owns with John Prine.

The results speak for themselves, a rudimentary and beguiling collection of observations from an authentic voice, as still and clear as a hot summer's day in the South.

Using her gifts for wry lyricism and close to the bone observation, Carmen spins gold from playful twists of phrase, letting her lyrics and gilded vocals shine among the supernatural country arrangements. ... more
