About Lindsay Ell:
For rising star Lindsay Ell, her debut album on Stoney Creek Records has been a long time coming ... but you can’t rush personal discovery. Sent on a mission to unleash the vibrant, soul-bearing country artist long predicted by fans and critics alike, Ell’s journey is now complete – and she calls the result simply, The Project.
Comprised of 12 gripping, heart-on-her-sleeve tracks and produced by Sugarland’s Kristian Bush, The Project is the musical calling card Ell’s been working toward her whole life – from her childhood in Calgary, Alberta; through her time opening shows for blues legend Buddy Guy; and even with attention-grabbing country singles “Trippin’ On Us” and “By the Way.”
“I feel like I’ve finally found myself,” Ell beams about The Project. “I’m a better guitar player, I’m a better singer, I’m a better songwriter. I’m just a different artist, and I’ve never felt about music the way I do now.”
Grooving, diverse, and emotionally charged, it’s easy to hear what Ell means. The Project reveals every aspect of her abundant talent – from her fiery guitar prowess to her crisp, inviting vocals ... and even her new knack for vulnerable song craft.
It’s funky, bluesy, and full of pop-country sweetness, but also delicate and – at times – brutally honest, as Ell’s heart is placed front and center on each track. She embraces the anything-goes fun of country’s future but also holds fast to its traditions, focusing on real instruments and co-writing nine of The Project’s songs to create something both unique and self-assured.
About Danielle Bradbery:
Twenty-year-old, multi-faceted artist Danielle Bradbery steps out and into her own with new leading track, “Sway” from her forthcoming project, due later this year. “Sway” marks a new sound for Bradbery that infuses her pop, R&B, soul and country influences and is penned herself with co-writers Johan Fransson and Emily Weisband. This will be the first project where Bradbery has gotten to play a role in writing her songs, allowing her to find her own voice and share her own story. In addition to releasing “Sway,” Bradbery was nominated for Performance of the Year at the 2017 CMT Music Awards for her performance of “Close” with Thomas Rhett and Nick Jonas on CMT Crossroads. The Texas-native for her start as the winner of Season 4 of NBC’s The Voice, where she soon found success with her singles “The Heart of Dixie” and “Young in America” off her self-titled album on Big Machine Records. She appeared on Thomas Rhett’s“Playing With Fire” of his album Tangled Up (Deluxe) and has made appearances on Blake Shelton’s Ten Times Crazier Tour as well as touring with well-known country superstar Brad Paisley on his Beat The Winter Tour, Thomas Rhett & Brett Eldredge on CMY’s Suits and Boots Tour, Scotty McCreery on his See You Tonight Tour and Hunter Hayes on his We’re Not Invisible Tour.
About Clare Dunn:
A tractor cab might not seem like the ideal place for an aspiring artist to nurture her musical dreams, but it sure did the trick for Clare Dunn. Growing up in tiny Two Buttes, Colorado (population: 43), she spent days at a time helping plow and plant the family farm, sharpening her ears with uninterrupted music-listening in the driver’s seat, even as she strengthened her work ethic. “That’s where a lot of my creativity came from and where a lot of my vision was forged, was just having nothing else to do other than listen to music and dream all day long in the vast wide open of those plains,” she reflects.
By the time the genial, grounded Great Plains native got the chance to record for MCA Nashville, she had fine-tuned her creative vision and was ready to do what it would take to make it a reality, which landed her in a truly unique position: she is the only female country artist in recent memory to have a hand in all of the writing, arranging and producing for her debut release, the Clare Dunn EP.
“I remember feeling like, ‘I know that I’m asking my label to take this tremendous leap of faith on me. I will be in the studio day and night. I will go until it’s right,’” says the guitar-slinging singer and songwriter. “I feel so grateful that I’ve had a team around me that’s allowed me to do that and supported me every step of the way.”
