LOS ANGELES (PRWEB) February 25, 2020
Saturn 5 Records announces the release of the new album “ingénue” by Nashville singer-songwriter Kristen Englenz which drops February 28, 2020.
Three-time Grammy nominee and former Wilco drummer Ken Coomer produced the album.
“Sometimes life can make you feel damaged, defective, not worth being seen or loved,” Englenz says. “We all have these stories. I write them into songs.”
A fast-rising fixture of the East Nashville music scene, Englenz is a classically trained pianist. Beyond vocals, she also plays guitar, piano and French horn on the album.
The nine song collection floats through a mosaic of genres while embracing each in an Americana vibe. The tongue-in-cheek wittiness of folk pop “Got Me With Goodbye,” the electrified bluesy rocker “Rebound,” and the Tom Waites-like ballad “Oh, Evenin’ Star,” each accompany Englenz on her journey to unravel the complexity of modern life. Her quest Dylanesque gospel-like “Pray for Rain” features the five-time Grammy winning Blind Boys of Alabama.
Englenz attributes her melodies as partly inspired by the natural world, which she combines with her interest in environmental activism in her popular web series “Caterwauling with Kristen” where she mimics birdcalls and teaches about avian species. “Globe in My Room,” the evocative final track of ingénue, features Englenz performing some of those bird songs.
Englenz was recently signed by Atlanta, Georgia-based indie label, Saturn 5 Records. Her tour in support of the album begins February 29, 2020 at Bowery Vault in Nashville. http://www.kristenenglenz.com for dates, times and more information.
