New Albums on the way from Kenley Collins, Danny B. Harvey/ Annie Marie Lewis and Dibbs Preston
Project Runway’s Kenley Collins, Danny B. Harvey with Annie Marie Lewis and Dibbs Preston & The Detonators to release new albums on Lanark Records!
Lanark Records is proud to announce 3 new exciting projects in the works to add to their growing roster of roots based projects.
Coming early 2016 is the first release from Kenley Collins. Kenley has been known for her 40’s inspired clothes during her time on the hit Bravo and Lifetime reality series, Project Runway. Her vintage sensibilities don’t end with her fashion designs as it also spills over into her music. Expect to hear a blend of that great pop, soul, blues, jazz, rockabilly of the 60’s girl-group sounds. She wanted to capture the spirit of that era and felt like Lanark was the place to keep that sound alive. More news once she hits the studio this early this fall.
Speaking of fall, guitarist Danny B. Harvey teams up with his wife, Annie Marie Lewis, on a project titled, Barbwire Heart. Danny is one of the genre’s premier guitarists and producers having performed with his own bands (Rockats, Head Cat, Devil’s Daughters, 69 Cats, etc.) as well as solo endeavors and working alongside artists such as Wanda Jackson, Nancy Sinatra and many others.
Annie Marie Lewis is the daughter of another Lanark Records artist, Linda Gail Lewis and they niece of Jerry Lee Lewis. Annie released a Christmas project last year with Danny producing and has been touring all over the world for many years and making a name for her as the new generation of the Lewis family! Their chemistry is evident from the moment you hear them together with Danny’s rumbling guitar and her bluesy, fiery vocals. The great recording couples of the past (Johnny & June, George & Tammy, Dolly & Porter, Conway & Loretta, etc.) are about to get another couple added to their hall of fame!
This August will also see Dibbs Preston & the Detonators hitting the Lanark studio for a new project on the way. Dibbs is best known as the thrilling lead singer for the legendary rockabilly group, The Rockats. With The Detonators, Dibbs also masterfully handles guitar duties as he did in the Levi & The Rockats days. Dibbs Preston & the Detonators have been turning heads in the Pennsylvania area for years as well as opening up for artists such as the Brian Setzer Orchestra. Expect energetic and authentic roots tunes from someone that has spent a lifetime singing them!
