NASHVILLE, TN (January 25, 2019) – With a stark contrast of impassioned vocals and acoustic simplicity, singer/songwriter Lauren Jenkins today releases a straightforward performance of “Running Out of Road.” Watch the live video now: https://LaurenJenkins.lnk.to/ROOR_AcousticPR. The track is the latest from her debut album No Saint, out March 15 via Big Machine Records, which American Songwriter has already dubbed “one of 2019’s more anticipated releases in the borderless world of country music.”
Filmed in one take in a western bar in Cheyenne, Wyoming, Jenkins captivates as gritty vocals croon “Windows down, radio loud, but I just wanna scream / I keep tryin’ to find the place where I won’t find your ghost / But I keep runnin’, I keep runnin’ / Runnin’ out of road.”
Unfolding her stories through this series of unfiltered performances, previously released acoustic videos include “No Saint”, “Give Up The Ghost” and “Maker’s Mark & You.” The delivery spotlights a raw sentiment each of her songs evoke – a girl, a guitar and gut-wrenching lyrics– and compliments the First Look Video teasing the full concept for an upcoming short film of the same name. Jenkins created and stars in the cinematic endeavor that sets her music and passion for storytelling against the backdrop of the American West. The trailer premiered last month at Variety’s Music for Screens Summit and can be viewed here: https://LaurenJenkins.lnk.to/RoadTrailer.
Naming her one of their 10 Artists to Watch for 2019, The New York Times proclaimed, “Lauren Jenkins writes and sings about disappointment, disillusion, drinking and holding on despite it all with a Stevie Nicks rasp in her voice” and describes No Saint as “[surrounding] her most bitter tidings with gleaming guitars and bright harmonies.”
Honing her craft since the age of 15, Jenkins has mesmerized crowds with her passion and authentic songwriting that blend traditional Country roots with Americana influences. The Texas-born, Carolina-raised musician has picked up a variety of inspirations throughout her travels from the Southern charm of Charleston and artistic vibe of New York City to the eclectic sounds of Music City. Her first EP, The Nashville Sessions, prompted “One to Watch” praise from Rolling Stone and additionally she has been named an “Artist to Watch in 2019” by outlets such as The NY Times, Billboard, Pandora, The Tennessean and Taste of Country among others and she was also chosen as a member of the “Class of 2019” by influential radio DJ Bobby Bones. Outside of her headline ventures, Jenkins has toured with acts such as Lady Antebellum, Delta Rae and Martina McBride. For additional information visit LaurenJenkins.com.
