Zoe Nicol and Rosie Jones aka Worry Dolls will release their debut album 'Go Get Gone' on January 27th via Bread & Butter Music. The duo recorded the album in Nashville with producer Neilson Hubbard and will support the release with a string of tour dates that stretch into April. More about Worry Dolls, those tour dates and the video for recent single 'Bless Your Heart' follows:
'Go Get Gone' the debut album from Worry Dolls - a young female duo born out of the joint talents of Zoe Nicol and Rosie Jones. Recorded in Nashville and produced by Neilson Hubbard (Matthew Perryman Jones), a veteran of East Nashville’s music scene and featuring songwriting collaborations with Jeff Cohen (Teitur), Ben Glover (Gretchen Peters), Joe Doyle (Reba Mcentire) & stunning playing from Wild Ponies, Eamon McLoughlin (Ashley Monroe), Kenny Hutson (Little Big Town) & more.
Rosie grew up singing and playing a variety of instruments in a music-filled household in Devon, picking up guitar after finding an old nylon-string under the stairs. As a teenager, Rosie’s musical diet was a mix of punk bands & angsty singer songwriters, finding country through a friend’s copy of Ryan Adams’ ‘Heartbreaker’. At 17, she wrote a song called Tennessee about wanting to live in Nashville and get her heart broken so that she could write songs like the ones she loved.
Zoe, whose family originate from Liverpool and Ireland, was raised in a small village in Kent by her mum. She inherited music from her parents who, although separated, were both performers which resulted in a childhood spent back and forth between her mum’s theatrical rehearsals and her dad’s club gigs. At 12, she started learning to play her dad’s old Spanish guitar to accompany herself, drawing inspiration from Eva Cassidy and Joni Mitchell; the songs poured out.
Worry Dolls met in Liverpool when they were 18, both on their chosen path of becoming solo singer songwriters, Rosie joined Zoe's band as a mandolin player and backing vocalist and their great chemistry and love of harmony led to them starting a contemporary bluegrass band. Paired by their teachers for an opportunity to have their songwriting critiqued by Paul McCartney, they were inspired to start co-writing, and could now be described as an almost telepathically linked songwriting force.
GO GET GONE featuring the singles Bless Your Heart, Miss You Already and Train's Leaving will be released on January 27th, 2017 on Vinyl, CD and all digital outlets via Bread & Butter Music.
