Nashville’s Courtney Jaye has a new album coming out called Love and Forgiveness. While that new album comes out, she will be touring with comedian singer/songwriter Stephen Lynch. The tour will stop at Gramercy Theatre 3 nights in May (May 3rd-5th.
You can check out one of Courtney’s songs “One Way Conversation” on American Songwriter.
Jaye is spinning into action as the release draws near, with a tour with comedian/singer/songwriter Stephen Lynch as an integral of his band.“Singing and touring with Stephen Lynch is a little dream come true. Never in a million years would I have the courage to write songs as brash, vulgar and honest as he writes – yet I get to sing them (while blushing uncontrollably), and be part of a show that makes people laugh for 2 hours straight.” The tour is natural fit as Jaye has provided a demure foil to Lynch’s bawdiness on his last album, Lion.
And she is generous – a free EP is now available on Noisetrade featuring two songs from Love and Forgiveness and four other great tracks. Pick it up here: http://noisetrade.com/courtneyjaye/the-sounds-of-courtney-jaye
Love and Forgiveness is an organic and rootsy album that recalls the classic 70s--inspired pop of her heroes Neil Young, Linda Ronstadt and Fleetwood Mac. Born in Pittsburgh and growing up in musically rich settings of Athens, GA, Flagstaff, AZ, Austin, Southern California, and even Hawaii (Kauai to be exact) before settling in Nashville, Jaye’s musical palette is fueled by her immersion in the regional sounds and scenes she’s experienced. Along the way, she has collaborated with the likes of Ben Bridwell (Band of Horses), Matthew Sweet and members of Black Rebel Motorcycle Club. That broad range of experience and musical interests comes together beautifu lly on Love and Forgiveness.
