Auburn Road Get "Fancy" On Debut EP
Girl power takes centerstage on Auburn Road’s debut EP 'Fancy'. One might easily mistake these three teenage beauties as budding pop princesses but looks can be deceiving. These three are on a mission to enlighten and empower with their breathtaking harmonies and an undeniable uniqueness of her own.
'Fancy' was produced by Michael Anderson which may account for the extra edge that this pop-Americana trio delivers. Their publicist tells us that Anderson is the former bass player and musical director for modern icons such as Christina Aguilera and Chris Brown with production credits for Ashlee Simpson, and American Idol alums Chris Daughtry, Kellie Pickler and David Archuleta. Anderson recently traded in life on the tour bus to sit behind the board and if Auburn Road’s 'Fancy' is any indication of what’s to come this will not be the last we hear from Mr. Anderson or the three lovelies that make up Auburn Road.
On the EP the kids (seriously they are still in their teens) get some help from Jason Aldean's rhythm section - Rich Redmond, Kurt Allison, and Tully Kennedy to add an extra kick and the songs were mastered by Andrew Mendelson who has worked with Willie Nelson, Lady Antebellum and Little Big Town.
All the songs were written by this teenage trio and with their rich harmonies they tell tales of having your friend’s back in “Fancy,” to believing in yourself in “Tuff Girl.” Then there is
“Lonesome Road”, an acapella number with voices that gives you tingles when the girls sing of moving forward, even if you have to carry on by yourself and layered with beautiful textures is “Love of my Own.” Just to name a few, there are more gems on this seven song debut.
If you like melody mixed with sass Auburn Road just might be your new favorite group.
