New Music From Americana/Country Artists Ashleigh Flynn & The Riveters And The Soulful Hilary Scott

Singer, songwriter Ashleigh Flynn has teamed up with the all-female Americana/rock band, The Riveters for their latest release "Live From The Blue Moon." It was recorded back in July of 2019 at the Oregon Country Fair and mixes together some of the groups originals, along with a couple cover songs to make up the setlist. The album kicks off with nostalgic, country vibe of "How The West Was Won" and the two-step rhythm of "I'll Fly Away." The Riveters capture the perfect Americana sound on "Too Close To The Sun," as Ashleigh's vocals are the final piece of the puzzle to deliver those good ol' roots music melodies. The band finally plug in for the rocking country blues of "Cold Black Line," which turns the energy up another notch, along with the swift-moving "Deep River Hallow." The Riveters once again deliver the goods with the addictive country rock vibe of "You Will Remember," before flashing back in time with a cover of Buck Owens' "Tiger By The Tail." They wrap up their new live album with the heartfelt ballad "Shrouded Sun" and a lively, final energetic cover of Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers' "American Girl." The album was released back in May on Home Perm Records. For more information on Ashleigh Flynn & The Riveters, please visit ashleighflynnandtheriveters.com.

Multi-instrumentalist Hilary Scott is preparing the release of her new five-song EP titled "Kaleidoscope," which be available on June 25th through Belltown Records. Scott has worked and performed alongside some of the greats, like Chuck Berry, Tanya Tucker, Bonnie Raitt and Little Feat. Hilary's new release dates back to 2007, when she was invited to participate in a songwriting project with producer Matthew Wilder and songwriters John Goodwin and Angela Kaset. The results are featured on four of the songs on this new release, beginning with the stellar, laid-back Americana/pop groove of "Just A Shame," as you will easily fall in love with Hilary Scott's warming vocals. Scott's backing band perfectly matches her vocal range on "Almost Home," before delivering a funkier rhythm on the mainstream-driven rock of "Too Much Is Not Enough." She wraps up her short new release with her own original-penned, country-style ballad "And Just," along with the R&B vibe of "Free Country," which finds Hilary Scott stepping out of her comfort zone.
