LORIE JO BRIDGES • River Town 2017
RIVER TOWN EP COMING SPRING 2017
Tracks: Order TDB
Drink Until I Drown
Kansas On My Mind
Strike A Match
Lorie Jo Bridges is set unleash her gritty, life-inspired Americana EP, River Town, in early 2017. Nominated for Best of Campgrounds at the International Walnut Valley Festival [Winfield], her debut solo album details some of the hard knocks of living life on the edge of heartache, longing, and betrayal.
Hosting songs about facing the daily reality of being human, the EP’s tracks discuss living on the impoverished side of the economic divide in “Home,” the desire to drink your heartache away in “Drink Until I Drown,” and revisits gloomy traditions of folk music in the dark tale of domestic violence and murder found in the title track, “River Town.” This album will be the fifth release featuring Bridges as a singer-songwriter and marks her first studio produced solo album.
