Lillie Mae Releases New Album Other Girls

08/16/2019

 

Today, Lillie Mae releases her second solo album, Other Girls! Between brushes with angels, encounters of ghost town drifters, her defiance of disloyal lovers and beyond, the 11 new songs and stories of Other Girls - all written by Lillie Mae, experienced by herself and fellow women - journey through a number of past lives, lived on the road to the singular artist she’s become. Lillie Mae tracked the LP in Nashville’s Historic RCA Studio A alongside producer Dave Cobb, siblings Frank and Scarlett Rische on guitar and mandolin, and a small circle of fellow diehard musicians.

For the better part of the past two decades, Lillie Mae has spent up to four nights a week singing, fiddling, and delivering hours of music to the stages of Nashville’s honky tonks and local haunts. Tomorrow, she reaches a major music city milestone, making her solo Grand Ole Opry debut. The following day, August 18th, she brings an intimate, in-store set to Nashville’s Grimey’s New & Preloved Music, before San Francisco’s Amoeba Music on August 22nd

Praise for Other Girls

"Lillie Mae is part of a new generation of country singers...the image of the artist herself is grittier, the stories darker, and the characters relatable on a more visceral level." - Vulture

"[Other Girls] surpasses any expectations. The first single, ‘You've Got Other Girls for That’ soars and rips through one's psyche and takes you to a land of mystery and grace." - NPR Music, Heavy Rotation

"[Lillie Mae] turns a new page, mixing the sweeping sounds of 1960s psych-pop with the cool detachment of a 21st century indie kid. Bittersweet and hauntingly beautiful" - Rolling Stone

"Lillie Mae's [‘You’ve Got Other Girls for That’] has been haunting me since I first heard it...Her voice howls like the wind through trees" - Refinery29 

"You can hear hints of anything from the psychedelic folk rock of Fairport Convention to the darker early ’70s Cher songs to the kinds of songs Stevie Nicks was writing in her early Fleetwood Mac years...it's clear that Lillie is turning into a force of her own" - BrooklynVegan

"A sprawling musical landscape that ventures from traditional western swing to mystic 1960s dark rock." - The Tennessean 

"Constant twists, turns, and surprises, demonstrating a depth of musical experience and knowledge uncommon for a 28-year-old." - The East Nashvillian (Cover Story)

"An engaging, mystical soundscape that perfectly accents Mae’s innate ability to tune into the most relatable parts of the human experience."The Nashville Scene

"The best album to come out of Nashville in awhile" - Honkytonk Badonkadonk
