Hailing from Gastonia, North Carolina, singer Abby Bryant and guitarist Bailey Faulkner have been hanging out and playing music together since they were kids. After a few challenging years of learning the ropes as touring musicians and struggling to make their way in a tough industry, the pair has cemented their presence as a regional powerhouse with debut album Not Your Little Girl released with their full group Abby Bryant & The Echoes. The debut LP is a confident and rebellious collection, showcasing Bryant’s vocal abilities and claiming the band’s hard-fought place in the world of vintage-inspired southern soul rock.
Recorded in the band’s new home base of Asheville, NC, the album features Anthony Dorion on bass, John Ginty (Robert Randolph & The Family Band, The Allman Betts Band) on Hammond organ and keys, Jeff Sipe (Col. Bruce Hampton, Leftover Salmon, Susan Tedeschi) on drums, and The Naughty Horns (Nick Ellman, John Culbreth, Ian Bowman) in addition to Faulkner on guitars and Bryant on vocals. Not Your Little Girl represents the culmination of years of dedication and a decided shift in Bryant and Faulkner’s outlook on the band’s future – to unabashedly make their presence known. The collection exhibits fierce independence, a fiery spirit, and a deep love for and understanding of American roots and soul music.
