Taken from the album Mockingbird Lane, nominated for Americana Music Association Album of The Year.
Saskatoon singer-songwriter Jen Lane’s new single “My Man” twists a classic country heartbreak song to end with a sense of resolution, and we’re delighted to premiere it on AUK today. Her first lyric video (conceptualized, filmed and edited by Taylor Leedahl) embodies the idea of a calm space under water where the artist sorts what is haunting her (perhaps the thought of the next four years). We’ve got a vinyl and 2 CD copies of her new album “This Life of Mine” to giveaway too. Just email firstname.lastname@example.org over the weekend with your name and address and “Jen Lane” in the subject line. And in the meantime, here’s the new song!
A nice gentle sound from this fine outfit who are on tour in the UK from the end of the month.
A retro moment from the late lamented Washington Squares, whose Tom Goodkind has put together a new album, Monsters of Folk, covering their 1983-1985 recordings, which is out now.
A fine slice of americana from the Canadian indie-rockers, written by front man Nils Edenloff in response to wildfires which caused the evacuation of the town where he lived.
A superb cover of the Townes van Zandt song.
The welcome return of Tift Merritt, with a single taken from her new album Stitch Of The World out on January 27th
