Labeling the sound she hoped to create ‘Cowgirl Boudoir’, Kimmie Rhodes embarked on a retro-cowgirl-hippie-chick musical experiment with fellow collaborators – quirky cool featured guest artist Johnny Goudie and producer Gabriel Rhodes – writing & singing songs that fuse traditional country sounds with influences from the 60s, 70s and 80s into a seamless blend.

Bit late posting this, but Awna has a few dates lined up in the UK next week in support of her second solo album, Wild One is a self released recording by the former Po’ Girl singer and multi-instrumentalist which was fan-funded from a successful Kickstarter campaign and follows the excellent Where The Darkness Goes,.
Wild One features eleven new songs and Awna showing her impressive range of skills on guitars, bass, piano, banjo, ukulele, pump
organ, with help from Sly Juhas (drums & percussion), Ja Speed (electric guitar), Brian Kobayakawa (bass), Drew Lindsay (piano) and Suzie Ungerleider adding harmonies. The album is beautifully constructed, nuanced and I think best appreciated with headphones on.
Awna Teixeira – Yellow Moon
For the UK dates Awna will be accompanied by Ja Speed (guitar, banjo & backing vocals) and she will be donating partial proceeds of the tour to different mental health organizations in the countries she’s touring in to help raise mental health awareness, in the UK the Mental Health Foundation will benefit from her generosity, the tour has being named Blue Heart On Your Sleeve Tour, after a song from the album written for her grandmother’s life long struggle with mental illness, Awna will also be talking about these issues from stage and selling Blue Heart patches, 100% of the proceeds of which will also be donated.
