New York singer-songwriter Courtney Farren just released the first single/video of her debut album of the same name–Nothing Like It. This six-track LP features guitar and piano songs recorded this past spring, and officially releases 6 October. New York City is Farren’s current home base, but she spent years on inner pursuits moving around various northern California locations. Upon moving to New York, she teamed up with Brett Sullivan of American Anymen, who turned out to be a good friend, quickly helping to organize/book shows and make videos to support her pursuit of art as a career. Courtney’s emotionally driven and heartfelt songwriting and performances lend themselves to her current live setup of guitar and vocals. Her words are fueled by honesty and a sense of urgency.
The LP is mixed by both Farren and Sullivan, the latter of whom also designed the front cover and the video.
