Once an exalted member of high rockabilly royalty, L.A. songwriter Kim Lenz has spent the past two decades digging for the roots of her most heralded genre. Her 1998 debut came in the form of Kim Lenz And The Jaguars, hurdling Lenz to the forefront of the rockabilly revival movement.
While the momentum’s high, Lenz has popped the clutch on her musical career once again with her upcoming fifth album, Slowly Speeding. On these ten new tracks Lenz combined ideal tones from her record collection and threw together the stylistic ingredients behind rock n roll for a growling re-definition of her sound. Slowly Speeding is out Friday and Lenz is set to embark on a month-long tour of Spain shortly afterwards. For a coniferous kickstart to Slowly Speeding, let this aural auteur grow on you with “Pine Me”!
