First impressions matter. Time and attention-strapped listeners size up an artist within a song or two, then move on or delve in further. Fortunately, it only takes Margo Price about 28 seconds to convince you that you're hearing the arrival of a singular new talent.
Margo Price's debut Third Man Records single "Hurtin' (On the Bottle)" gives a fresh twist on classic Nashville honky tonk tunes and classic tales of drink and misfortune. Her voice has that alluring mix of vulnerability and resilience that was once the province of Loretta and Dolly. It is a tour-de-force performance that is vivid, deeply moving and all true.
The exclusive non album B-side "Desperate and Depressed" was recorded live in Third Man Records' infamous Blue Room, and features classic country staples such as slide guitar and whiskey driven sadness.
With a full-length release, Midwest Farmer's Daughter, in the works for 2016 from Third Man Records, this is just the start of good things to come from Margo Price.
