Y'all, we are SO EXCITED. What else is new, you ask? Fair question.
Well, we have an excellent answer: Sweet Claudette is preparing to release our very first full-length album, Whiskey Drunk on Puppy Love, in just a few weeks!
We've chosen to play shows at our two favorite area venues to celebrate this momentous occasion. Our album release shows will be November 3 at The Purple Onion in Saluda, NC and November 4 at The Mothlight in Asheville, NC.
This album was made possible by YOU - our beloved friends, family and fans - who so generously supported our crowdfunding campaign last February. Recorded and produced by Daniel Shearin of River Whyless, the album features songs written and led by all four of our band's songwriters: Amber Sankaran, Dulci Ellenberger, Amanda Platt and Melissa Hyman. Guest appearances from several members of the Claude Squad (Evan Martin, Kevin Williams, Daniel Shearin and more) round out the album's acoustic-songwriter-meets-pop/R&B vibes with impeccable musicianship and unexpected sonic twists. We're terribly proud and excited to present Whiskey Drunk on Puppy Love to you soon!
Stay tuned for more info. Signing off for now. Love y'all!
