"With her self-titled solo EP, Morrow has struck out on her own, debuting four songs that showcase her tender songwriting and inward-looking artistic vision." - Rolling Stone. Lauren Morrow recently released her new album as a solo artist after over a decade as the centerpiece of popular Americana band The Whiskey Gentry. The self-titled, four song EP is filled with stories; some real, some fiction, all universal yet personal. Morrow and her husband, guitarist, and co-producer Jason recruited an all-star lineup of Nashville’s most notable players for the new project, including drummer Jerry Pentecost, pedal steel player Whit Wright, bassist Ted Pecchio, guitarist Adam Meisterhans, and former Deer Tick member Robbie Crowell on keys. Recorded at the historic Nashville studio Creative Workshop with producer/engineer Parker Cason, the Lauren Morrow EP not only showcases Morrow’s flawless vocals and intricate songwriting, but her willingness to take risks — an edge that makes her stand out from the Nashville norm. Whether she’s singing a murder ballad or an vintage, classic-country sounding banger, there’s a unique impression she leaves that lingers. You don’t want to miss it.
