Laura Cantrell Finds 'No Way There From Here' on New January Album

Press Release: No Way There From Here, the new album from Nashville-born, New York City-based singer-songwriter Laura Cantrell, will be released January 2014 on Thrift Shop Recordings and distributed by Red Eye.  Cantrell returns to her hometown of Nashville, TN this week for two special performances as part of the Americana Music Festival.

Produced by Cantrell and Mark Nevers, the 12-track album was recorded in Nashville’s acclaimed Beech House studios and features writing collaborations with Tracyanne Campbell (Camera Obscura), Amy Allison and Franklin Bruno, as well as guest musicians Jim Lauderdale, Kenny Vaughan, Michael Cerveris, Caitlin Rose, William Tyler (Lambchop), Paul Niehaus (Lambchop, Calexico) and Paul Burch. Of making the new album, Cantrell says, “Each recording project presents a fresh question to answer about what you’re doing and why. For this record, where I’ve worked for the first time with mostly my own songs and point of view, the pressure I’ve felt is to find what suits each song and do it justice. It was challenging and exciting, because I have had to really define the sound.”
In addition to her 2000 debut Not The Tremblin’ Kind, which pioneering British disc Jockey John Peel described as “…my favorite record of the last ten years, possibly my life,” Cantrell has released When The Roses Bloom Again (2002), Humming By The Flowered Vine (2005), and Kitty Wells Dresses: Songs of the Queen of Country Music (2011).
