Jaime Wyatt Premieres Striking New Video Via Rolling Stone, Announces Summer Tour Dates
Watch The “Giving Back The Best Of Me” Music Video Here
April 19, 2017 – Jaime Wyatt continues her breakout year with the premiere of the striking video for “Giving Back the Best of Me” via Rolling Stone Country. The song is a standout from Wyatt’s new album Felony Blues (out now on Forty Below Records), one of the most acclaimed country releases of 2017 so far. The album has climbed to #33 on the Americana Music Association radio charts this week. Wyatt, whose music is “a seamless blend of early California country and modern outlaw sensibilities” (Rolling Stone Country), will also head out on tour this summer, current list of dates below.
The “Giving Back the Best of Me” video was shot in various locations around Seattle, most notably in front of the Edith Macefield House. Macefield, who passed away in 2008, famously didn't sell her home to a commercial development company, leaving the tiny structure to eventually be flanked by giant, faceless buildings. It’s Wyatt’s way of paying homage to those who stand up to change that is not always warranted or beneficial.
Wyatt also recently made her NPR World Café debut, playing songs from Felony Blues and talking to host Talia Schlanger about the record. In a raw, incredibly compelling interview, Wyatt and Schlanger discuss the harrowing backstory that led to the creation of Felony Blues. Listen to the NPR World Café interview here.
Here’s what we’ve been hearing about Jaime and Felony Blues:
“Jaime Wyatt’s life story is about as country as it gets."
"For fans of: Margo Price, Elizabeth Cook, outlaw country artists who have actually served time."
-Rolling Stone Country, January 2017 "10 New Country Artists You Need To Know"
“Fueled by electric twang-rock that hints at a countrified Tom Petty and a hardened Lucinda Williams. That is, if either had spent time in prison as Wyatt has.”
“[Felony Blues has] all the right country touches: trebly lead guitar licks and lonesome pedal steel over vintage-style C&W beats and Wyatt’s spellbinding voice, a rough-edged and emotionally expressive vehicle built for heartache.”
-Paste Magazine, “Best of What’s Next” feature
“2017 is still young, but the effort expended by Jaime Wyatt on Felony Blues is impressive enough to be considered the best in the country realm so far.”
-Saving Country Music, Two Guns Up album review
"As authentic as anything you'll find in modern country.”
"Bonnie Raitt with a backstory closer to Boosie"
“Listen to the music of Jaime Wyatt and you'll hear a lot of things. There’s the twang of Buck Owens, mixed with the freewheeling sounds of The Byrds or Rick Nelson’s later Decca recordings. Sprinkle in a dash of the eternal cool factor of Linda Ronstadt, and you’re very close to the unique musical stylings of Felony Blues, her upcoming album."
"An impressive new talent."
“Wyatt’s album showcases a new tour de force in female country music.”
