Los Angeles-based musician Kim Lenz has been cultivating her take on rockabilly since 1998, releasing three albums, including a pair for Hightone Records – one of the most influential labels in the genre – and playing hundreds of dates around the world. Already a recognized force on the roots music scene, Lenz is now poised for a breakthrough with her upcoming album “Follow Me”, released on August 20th via Riley Records.
“Follow Me” was produced by roots music icon Carl Sonny Leyland, and recorded by Los Straitjackets bassist Pete Curry in a manner that honors the recordings that have come before – on vintage tube gear to two-inch tape in mono. Kim had the following choice remarks to say about the new album: “Some people have asked me if this is a break-up record. Well, I guess it is,” she says, reflecting. “It’s about the breakup of the life I had known. I’d always been a fiercely independent woman, but I was really just trying to protect myself. What I’ve gone through has ultimately made me stronger, though – real strength.”
