“Sellers knows how to deliver a lyric in such a way that builds a whole universe.”
Entertainment Weekly

“Aubrie Sellers is country’s next big star.”
NYLON

“Sellers has a gift for yearning, an indelible tinge of sadness in her sass.”
—NPR Music, “Songs We Love”

“…gritty and glorious debut LP.”
Rolling Stone

Aubrie Sellers highly anticipated debut album, New City Blues, is now streaming in full exclusively as part of NPR Music’s “First Listen” series. Of the music, NPR Music praises “…delicately bruised twang and cursive phrasing archly elongating and wilting notes, tying her lines together with soft, tendrily flourishes…it’s plainly the work of an artist who’s determined to construct a riveting identity for herself.”

Out next Friday, January 29 on Carnival Records via Thirty Tigers, New City Blues is now available to pre-order, which includes instant downloads of four albums tracks—“Light of Day,” “Sit Here And Cry,” “Loveless Rolling Stone” and “Losing Ground.”

In celebration of the release, Sellers will make her network television debut on “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert” next Thursday, January 28. Additional upcoming performances include an album release show at NYC’s Mercury Lounge on January 27, a date with Chris Stapleton at Nashville’s historic Ryman Auditorium on February 20 and an appearance at the 2016 Stagecoach Festival. See below for complete details.

Already receiving widespread critical notice, CMT recently premiered the official music video for “Sit Here And Cry” and has selected Sellers for their “Next Women of Country” series. Additionally, Rolling Stone named the album one of their “35 Most Anticipated Country Albums of 2016” and says Sellers is one of “10 Country Artists You Need To Know” praising, “With country roots…but a gritty soul, Sellers writes music that gets its southern kicks from her pristine quiver while favoring restless electric guitar over sleepy acoustics.” Moreover, of “Loveless Rolling Stone,” NPR Music’s Ann Powers praises, “…Sellers joins that elite crew with a song that starts out heartwarming but soon turns into the existential testament of a heartbreaker” while Billboard calls her, “One of the most-talked-about artists in Music City,” NYLON proclaims “Aubrie Sellers is Country’s Next Big Star” and The Tennessean asserts, “Sellers will step into the spotlight with the release of her debut album.”

Produced by Frank Liddell (Miranda Lambert, Eli Young Band, etc.), New City Blues, was recorded in Nashville and features 14 self-penned songs.

Of the music, Sellers, comments, “My influences are all over the place: the Kinks, Screaming Jay Hawkins, Buddy and Julie Miller, Creedence, even Ricky Skaggs. Led Zeppelin is my biggest rock influence—and that goes right straight, for me, to Ralph Stanley. That raw bluegrass, the banjo, that’s the same energy and intensity you get in punk. It’s all music that’s driven, that’s haunted, that cuts and moves.”

Her music, she adds, “is so much more like garage rock, that raw raging stuff. Maybe you could say it’s ‘garage country’?!”

Raised on the road surrounded by award-winning singers, songwriters and musicians, Sellers spent most of her childhood drawing inspiration from her Grammy Award-winning mother Lee Ann Womack and her father hit songwriter and musician Jason Sellers. Her own credits include vocals on critically acclaimed country records including Ralph Stanley’s A Man of Constant Sorrow, David Nail’s I’m a Fire and Miranda Lambert’s Platinum. Of her duet with Nail on his song “Brand New Day, “ Esquire’s Andy Langer asserts that Sellers, “…establishes herself right here and now as one to watch.”
