American Singer- Songwriter Gina Villalobos will release her new album, “Days On Their Side” in the July 14th, of 2009, which is widely anticipated in the Americana/Alt Country circles in which she first gained attention.
Earthy and honest, the songs open up and breathe like the pages of a book with each respective listen. Their complexities emerge from between the lines, constantly changing shape, deepening in meaning, drawing you willingly into their jagged shadows and wrapping around your soul.
The strength of “Days On Their Side” is built on the foundation of an extensive and impressive career in both the US and on the international stage after BBC Radio 2 DJ Bob Harris hailed break-through release, 2005’s Rock & Roll Pony, as album of the year- Making the album a must have commodity.
‘Rock N Roll Pony’(2005) and her follow up album ‘Miles Away’ (2007) received excellent reviews in national US magazines like No Depression, Acoustic Guitar Magazine and Harp as well as extensive coverage in other US-based regional and local press and websites like Popmatters.com. The critical applause continued with positive reviews in UK and European magazines and newspapers such as Uncut, Country Music People, Maverick, The Independent, The Scottish Daily Express and Rolling Stone (Germany) and from internet music magazines such as Americana-UK and NetRhythms. Both albums spent time on the Euro-Americana and AMA charts.
Gina’s nothing if not dead serious. Her music is deeply rooted in time, place, and history. She’s the real thing: an artist, someone who can show you where you are.
