Laura Cantrell's New Album Out Today; Featured on PBS Documentary

No Way There From Here, the new album from Nashville-born, New York City-based singer-songwriter Laura Cantrell, will be released today, January 28 on Thrift Shop Recordings and distributed by Redeye. Already receiving critical acclaim in the U.K., The Telegraph praises, "impeccable...a strong, confident, articulate woman determined to plough her own furrow-all the while reminding the country music business where it came from." In advance of the album, Cantrell will be featured in the new documentary, Nashville 2.0: The Rise of Americana, which will premiere this Friday, November 22 at 9 p.m. EST (check local listings) as part of the 2013 PBS Arts Fall Festival. Additionally, on January 29, Cantrell will perform a special release show at New York's Joe's Pub followed by a series of February dates in the U.K. and Ireland. See below for complete details.

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."
