My Girl The River - booking/agent information and album sampler
'There she is, my girl in the river.' - Albert Finney, 'Big Fish' by Tim Burton
RECENTLY SUPPORTED SUZANNE VEGA IN THE UK ON FOUR SOLD OUT DATES. My Girl The River features the writing and voice of Kris Wilkinson Hughes. Along with bassist and songwriter (No More I Love You's/Annie Lennox), Joe Hughes and some astonishingly gifted musicians (Jonathan Byrd, Will Kimbrough, Nick Pynn, Max Milligan, Kristin Wilkinson, Jacob Chano Lundby, John Garden and Tom Moth) they are very pleased to offer up their debut album 'This Ain't No Fairytale'. Described as 'stunning', it is mainly inspired by Kris' upbringing in the American Deep South, bringing to life anecdotes, half-truths, white lies and fables. Ranging from alt-country and folk to Americana and roots, it ticks every box. It was recorded in the front room of Kris and Joe's house in November 2015 and mixed by John Garden, produced by Kris, mastered by Mick Conley (Suzy Bogguss, Kathy Mattea, Marty Stuart), with art direction by James Marsh (Talk Talk).
Currently booking for festivals or as support for larger venues/touring artists or solo for house concerts, art rooms, coffee houses, smaller venues.
Line Up: solo - Kris on acoustic guitar; duo - Kris with Joe on bass; trio - Kris and Joe with percussion; full band - add another guitar and fiddle. For more information or to discuss dates please email email@example.com
