Worry Dolls To Release Their Debut Album ‘ Go Get Gone ‘ And To Tour From 16th Of January

Screen Shot 2017-02-16 at 10.11.35

BREAD & BUTTER MUSIC IS PROUD TO ANNOUNCE

  the debut album from Worry Dolls – a young female duo born out of the joint talents of Zoe Nicol and Rosie Jones. Recorded in Nashville and produced by Neilson Hubbard (Matthew Perryman Jones), a veteran of East Nashville’s music scene and featuring songwriting collaborations with Jeff Cohen (Teitur), Ben Glover (Gretchen Peters), Joe Doyle (Reba Mcentire) & stunning playing from Wild Ponies, Eamon McLoughlin (Ashley Monroe), Kenny Hutson (Little Big Town) & more.

Rosie grew up singing and playing a variety of instruments in a music-filled household in Devon, picking up guitar after finding an old nylon-string under the stairs. As a teenager, Rosie’s musical diet was a mix of punk bands & angsty singer songwriters, finding country through a friend’s copy of Ryan Adams’ ‘Heartbreaker’. At 17, she wrote a song called Tennessee about wanting to live in Nashville and get her heart broken so that she could write songs like the ones she loved.

Zoe, whose family originate from Liverpool and Ireland, was raised in a small village in Kent by her mum. She inherited music from her parents who, although separated, were both performers which resulted in a childhood spent back and forth between her mum’s theatrical rehearsals and her dad’s club gigs. At 12, she started learning to play her dad’s old Spanish guitar to accompany herself, drawing inspiration from Eva Cassidy and Joni Mitchell; the songs poured out.

Worry Dolls met in Liverpool when they were 18, both on their chosen path of becoming solo singer songwriters, Rosie joined Zoe’s band as a mandolin player and backing vocalist and their great chemistry and love of harmony led to them starting a contemporary bluegrass band. Paired by their teachers for an opportunity to have their songwriting critiqued by Paul McCartney, they were inspired to start co-writing, and could now be described as an almost telepathically linked songwriting force.

GO GET GONE featuring the singles Bless Your Heart, Miss You Already and Train’s Leaving will be released on January 27th, 2017 on Vinyl, CD and all digital outlets via Bread & Butter Music.

Dar Williams’ 2016 tour with dates in UK and Germany !

Dar Williams new tour May 2016
New single “Slippery Slope” taken from her critically acclaimed album”EMERALD”

1930339_19743842198_8899_n

” Dar Williams is a songwriter of immense talent and her new album, Emerald, is a work of real depth. From the powerful opening song about staying strong in adversity (Something To Get Through) to the mordant Mad River, this is a work of mature and thoughtful songwriting.” – The Telegraph
jaj
” Dar Williams is back with Emerald, her ninth studio record (out May 12th), which deals as bluntly as ever with the shadowy, subtle corners of humanity on songs like “Slippery Slope,” premiering exclusively on Rolling Stone Country. “
– Rolling Stone Country
jjj
In “FM Radio,” Williams infuses bits of pop culture prowess and a sense of nostalgic playfulness. The song parallels her own growth as a “’70s chick” with society’s exploration of sexuality and the era’s increase in social consciousness.

Dar Williams Signs To Bread & Butter

Featuring collaborations with Jill Sobule, Richard Thompson, Jim Lauderdale, the Milk Carton Kids, the Hooters, Lucy Wainwright Roche 

jjj

Dar Williams to release her brand new album “EMERALD” on Bread and Butter Music May 18th 2015 and tour with dates in UK, Ireland and Germany

 

jjj

Dar Williams’s growth as an individual over her two-decade career has gone hand-in-hand with her evolution as an artist. This is perhaps best typified by the release of “Emerald,” a timely and brilliant album of new songs and collaborations with friends such as Jill Sobule, Richard Thompson, Jim Lauderdale, the Milk Carton Kids, the Hooters, Lucy Wainwright Roche and her mother Suzzy Roche and others. It marks her debut with the UK label, Bread and Butter (Essential) and is a sparkling collection of new original material, inspired collaborations and some surprising covers such as B.A.D.’s “Johnny Appleseed” making this album one of her best yet.

jjj

Raised in Chappaqua, N.Y., Williams spent 10 years living in the thriving artistic community of Northampton, Mass., where she began to make the rounds on the coffeehouse circuit. Joan Baez, an early fan of her music, took Williams out on the road and recorded several of her songs. The rest is history. Williams most recently released a live recording celebrating the 20th Anniversary of her legendary album, “The Honesty Room.”

jjj

In addition to being a touring artist, Williams is an author, teaches a course at Wesleyan University, and conducts annual song writing seminars. Williams devotes much of her time to environmental issues and causes, and has created “Give Bees A Camp” which combines concerts and the planting of bee-friendly gardens for young campers.
