From Punk Fur to Alt.Country Racehorse
(PR) She may be transplanted from the streets of NYC to the highways of LA, but HOLLY RAMOS has left behind neither her edgy attitude nor musical talent. The former lead singer of punk rock band Fur has merged her swank and swagger with Americana alt.country on Racehorse, her debut solo CD slated for release May 29th. Never one to forget old friends, RAMOS has called upon her longtime occasional songwriting partner Jesse Malin to produce the cut “Waterfall” along with roots-rock poster boy Ryan Adams. And while 10 of the album’s tracks are self-penned, RAMOS chose to include a breathtaking rendition of “Art Lover” by The Kinks’ genius tunesmith Ray Davies.
RAMOS will travel back to her hometown NYC to grace her old stomping ground with a live concert at the Mercury Lounge on Tuesday, April 17th, opening for high school buddy Jesse Malin. As an advance to the official release of Racehorse, RAMOS will preview songs from the album in a solo acoustic performance. - Click here for the Full Story
