Phoebe Hunt & The Gatherers' Shanti's Shadow Out June 2nd, Folk Alley Premieres "Lint Head Gal"

New York, NY (Top40 Charts) Austin, Texas' Phoebe Hunt & The Gatherers will release the album Shanti's Shadow on June 2nd.
Folk Alley debuted the video for the lead single "Lint Head Gal," a stomping country blues song about a hard working, independent woman. "She loves music with her whole body," Folk Alley writes about her performance in the video. "Like the character she's singing about, Phoebe Hunt is clearly going to do things her own way - and have a fabulous time doing it." The single is available now at Amazon and iTunes.

"'Lint Head Gal' is the story of a revolutionary woman," Hunt tells Folk Alley. "During the time of industrialization in American history, many women moved from the country into the cities to create an independent life for themselves, free from the shackles of the patriarchal paradigm they had been raised within. Often times these women ended up in factory jobs, just barely skimming by. This quest meant being rough and tough and ready to do almost anything for freedom. 'Lint Head Gal' embodies that women and her quest for personal liberty."

An accomplished instrumentalist with foundations in jazz and swing music, Hunt makes an impressive leap with Shanti's Shadow. It's the culmination of a five year journey that has taken her from her Austin roots through Music Row, Brooklyn, and even to India to study with seventh-generation master violinist Kala Ramnath. Along the way, Phoebe found her voice and delivered her most inspired set of songs to date -- the soundtrack to her self-discovery.

These masterfully crafted songs are brought to life by the musicians Hunt has gathered - Roy Williams (guitar), Dominick Leslie (mandolin), Sam Reider (piano/accordion), Nick Falk (drums) and Jared Engel/Dave Speranza (upright bass) - each a virtuoso in their own right.

Hunt is skilled at taking seemingly disparate elements and pulling them together into a dazzling kaleidoscope of lush, coherent sound and rhythm patterns. The result is music that swells, crashes and breathes organically under her soulful, plaintive voice. Sounds of Americana and Texas-tinged swing are woven with exotic rhythmic concepts culled from the band's time in India.
