Hollywood, CA (PRWEB) November 13, 2004
ÂFemme FataleÂ is a thing of the past for rockabilly singer/songwriter Dulcie Younger --- literally. Like a young Elizabeth Taylor, Miss Younger keeps her hair in tight curls, her lips painted red, and the neckline on her vintage dresses daringly low. Younger announces the release of her debut CD album, ÂKitty, KittyÂ GROWL!Â, which features rockabilly guitar legend Deke Dickerson.
Rockabilly --- a blend of country, rhythm-and-blues, and jazz first popularized in the 1950s by Elvis Presley --- is an underground music scene on the rise. There are only a handful of women nationally who perform rockabilly, and even fewer who write their own music. Dulcie Younger not only writes and performs her own songs, but sheÂs created an image for herself based on the glamour of 1950s Hollywood starlets.
As a child, YoungerÂs father was an amateur record collector. He occasionally took her on buying trips, and it was through these that she discovered classic singers --- Peggy Lee, Elvis Presley, Connie Francis. She became interested in vintage fashion, but quickly found that her unique style was too sophisticated for her high school peer group. As her isolation grew, she turned to writing music as a creative release.
ÂKitty, KittyÂ GROWL!Â was recorded at the historic Paramount Recording Studios in Hollywood, California. Barry Conley (Sugar Ray, L7, The Stray Cats) engineered the album. The album was recorded using vintage recording techniques to replicate the warmth of the 1950Âs era sound. Against music-industry odds, YoungerÂs independently released CD caught the attention of buyers at Tower Records, Virgin Megastores, and Barnes and Noble, and a large number of chain stores now carry the album in stock.
