Singer, songwriter Angaleena Presley is set to release her first full-length solo album on Slate Creek Records later this year. The Beauty, Ky. native is also known for her role in the trio Pistol Annies, alongside Miranda Lambert and Ashley Monroe.
In addition to co-writing songs on Pistol Annies’ two projects, Annie Up and Hell on Heels, Presley also co-wrote Lambert’s 2011 single, “Fastest Girl in Town” and Ashton Shepherd‘s “Look It Up,” among other songs.
“Part of what I loved about Garth Fundis and Jim Burnett at Slate Creek is that they understood where I wanted to go creatively,” Presley says. “Producing this album was important to me because of its content – I’ve lived every word of it and knew exactly how I wanted it to sound.”
“We could not be happier about Angaleena joining our Slate Creek team and giving us the opportunity to release her remarkable solo debut,” Slate Creek’s President & Creative Director Garth Fundis comments. “From the first listen, we knew we wanted to be a part of this and can hardly wait for others to hear what she has created. Angaleena is both poet and artist in the truest sense of those words.”
Slate Creek Records is also home to singer, songwriter and entertainer Brandy Clark. An album title, release date and track listing for Presley’s debut project on the label are forthcoming.
