Allison Moorer to release new albumTuesday

Fantastic reviews are rolling in for Allison Moorer’s upcoming Crows, available Feb 9th, 2010 on Ryko. The Boston Globe calls this 13-track album, produced by R.S. Field (Buddy Guy, John Mayall), "striking" and says "covering the likes of Joni Mitchell, Patti Smith, and Nina Simone on last year's 'Mockingbird' seems to have rubbed off on her." American Songwriter's four-star appraisal finds the album "coaxingly lovely in its ministrations," and "beautiful" simply describes her performance on a recent New York Times popcast. Internationally, the press also recognizes a certain charm from this Alabama native. BBC claims the new album "finds Moorer hitting her stride and going somewhere special," while MOJO magazine's March issue complements her vocal style as "bearing a grave grace and weight-honestly forceful, not showy."

Meanwhile, her momentum continues to build at radio. The album's first single, "Broken Girl," was the #1 most added at Americana radio during its debut week, and is now #9 on the chart. The song was also #3 most added at Triple A/Non- Commercial and is currently at #19. Check out her interview and performance on New York Times Popcast.
