Jaime Wyatt’s Breakout Year Continues With Paste “Best of What’s Next,” NPR World Café Session, Americana Radio Success
Debut NPR World Café Session Airs April 4th, New Album Felony Blues Cracks Americana Radio Top 40, SiriusXM Outlaw Country Adds Multiple Tracks
March 30, 2017 – Jaime Wyatt continues to make her case for Country music’s biggest breakout of the year. The L.A.-based Wyatt’s new album Felony Blues (Forty Below Records) has received a wide swath of praise from press, and is beginning to make major inroads at radio. Paste Magazine calls Wyatt one of the “Best of What’s Next” in a new feature, saying 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.”
Wyatt will make her NPR World Café debut with a session airing this coming Tuesday, April 4th, and this week she cracks the Americana Radio top 40 at number 37 and climbing. SiriusXM Outlaw Country has also added multiple Felony Blues tracks into rotation. Summer tour dates will be announced soon.

The critical acclaim for Wyatt and Felony Blues continues to pour in, here’s what we’ve been hearing:
“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.”
-The Los Angeles Times
“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.”
