Nashville Duo The Breedings Release New Album FAYETTE, Announce US Tour Dates

Nashville's Brother Sister Duo The Breedings have released their new album, Fayette, and just announced their US tour. Dates below!

Willie Breeding writes classic country songs--emotional and boozy, melodic and catchy--while his sister Erin makes them her own with a formidable voice, uniquely fitted for tragedy and perfectly suited for the lovesick. Fayette is a demonstration of this symbiosis, seemingly effortless, with ten songs the listener is as likely to consume on aSaturday night with drinks as the next morning with the resulting remorse and coffee.

The Breedings are a brother and sister country duo based out of Nashville, TN. Originally hailing from Lexington, KY, the duo sings original material penned by singer/songwriter Willie Breeding, who released two solo albums while living in Brooklyn, NY. Big sister Erin, who was working as an accountant in Boston and singing occasional backup for her brother, stepped up in 2008 to become the lead singer.

Brought together in the studio by their love of '70s country music and rock'n'roll, the duo moved south to finish recording their debut album, Laughing at Luck(2011). Erin has a voice reminiscent of early Stevie Nicks, which she masterfully wraps around her brother's lyrics and melody. Willie's harmonies and swinging guitar complete the sound.

The album was produced by Duane Lundy (Ben Sollee, Cheyenne Marie Mize) and The Breedings and was mastered by Jim DeMain (Robert Plant, Vince Gill) at Yes Master Studios.
