Blue Heart Records signs Laura Tate
Smokey Tango is slated for worldwide release on September 16, 2022
By: Blue Heart Records
Tate's sixth album, Smokey Tango, takes the listener on a captivating journey through the lush landscape of the South and the swamplands of Louisiana. From visions of tuxedoed dancers twirling under a canopy of stars, to table-top juke joint jumpin' in the Quarter, aural surprises excite and inspire throughout the 12 tracks. Produced by Terry Wilson and featuring a stellar band of Rhythm Tramps musicians, including Terry and GRAMMY-nominated Teresa James, the music of Smokey Tango is a dance you don't want to sit out
"Having worked with Laura on her previous opus, Live From El Paso, I am delighted she has joined the Blue Heart family," says Betsie Brown, label partner. "Laura is an excellent fit for our label; not only is she an accomplished artist, but she is also passionate about her causes."
"I'm over the moon as I am honored to be represented and working with Sallie Bengtson, Betsie Brown and the Blue Heart Records team. Awe-inspiring producer and musician Terry Wilson led the creation of this fun-loving record featuring a star-studded cast of musicians. His wife, Teresa James, is always generous with her talent, advice and direction, and I have learned so much working with the dynamic "T & T" duo since 2015. Can't wait to share the music of Smokey Tango with the world," says Laura Tate.
Album preorders begin on August 19. For additional information, visit www.musicbylauratate.com and follow on Facebook @artistlauratate and Instagram @lauratatemusic.
"With all the bases covered musically, Laura is free to pour herself heart and soul into what she does best. Whether it is soulful ballads, country love songs, rock and roll or torch songs that melt clear to the deepest part of your heart, she does it all and does it with power and a deep-felt passion." ~Reflections In Blue
