Interview with Stealing Angels

Interview with Stealing Angels

CL: I’m Christian Lamitschka and today I present you Stealing Angels.

SA: Guten Tag! Hello!

CL: Could you introduce yourselves to the European Fans who might be hearing of you for the first time?

SA: Yes! My name is Tayla. I’m Caroline. I’m Jennifer. Hi. And we’re Stealing Angels, collectively!

CL: These three girls have energy and power and are the hottest package you ever saw. They are coming out with a new single for the first time. Who wants to talk about it?

SA: Our single is coming out beginning of April. It’s called “Paper Heart”. We have 13 songs on the album. This is one of the two that we did not write. Our producer, Paul Worley brought it to us and he loved the song. So when we heard it, we obviously had very open ears we loved it too. We cut it and we just kind of visualized a girl searching for love. We kind of have applied it to the movie “Eat, Pray, Love”, we think it should have been the theme song. Unfortunately, Julia did not catch us in time. But it’s about a fragile heart and wishing someone told you before someone gave you a massive heartbreak. Maybe you could have avoided it.

CL: How did you three get together?

SA: Carolyn and I were friends. I moved into a house with girls. One of the girls was Carolyn’s friend. So we became friends. Our Agency put us together to do a reality show. We were all soul artists and my
(Jennifer) grandfather is John Wayne; her (Tayla) grandmother is Loretta Lynn. She (Caroline) is distantly related to Daniel Boone. We put the show together based on our ancestors and they thought we were going to fight and argue and instead we got along, which made for bad TV. But for a good Trio.

CL: Yea, I believe by this musical background you have wow!! By the way, it must be fun to be a little mouse on the bus when you three are touring.

SA: You can be a large mouse on the bus if you want. Caroline has a fetish, she loves rodents. She always dreamed of having a Ferret. If you can turn yourself into a mouse, come on!

CL: Who is the first in the bathroom to get ready.

SA: Tayla! Oh yea, I wake up the earliest. That was kind of personal (laughing).

PRODUCER CHARLIE PEACOCK USES TWITTER TO SIGN NEW COUNTRY BAND ATTWATER

Grammy Winner Follows-up The Civil Wars with Sacramento Discovery
 
Nashville, Tenn (Tuesday, April 12, 2011) – Grammy Award-winning producer Charlie Peacock (The Civil Wars, Switchfoot), Sr. VP of A&R for Twenty Ten Music, proudly announced today the signing of new country band Attwater to an exclusive production and music publishing deal.
 
Erika Attwater and Jonathan Richards, the songwriting team and principal members behind Attwater, began following Peacock on Twitter after seeing his producer credit on the hit folk/country act, The Civil Wars. Attwater had recorded a live album for free download, were faithfully playing gigs and doing what 21st century artists do – making the most of the social networks.

“I noticed Sacramento, California was the city on their Twitter follow,” says Peacock. “I got my start there and love the people of Nor Cal. The least I could do was check Attwater out, maybe send them a note of encouragement.  Then I heard Erika’s amazing voice singing these great songs, and I thought: I’m the luckiest man in the world – I just found a diamond in my old backyard!  I’m a big fan of Twitter right about now.”
 
In early January 2011, Peacock and Attwater began work on the band’s debut project tentatively titled, Still Me Still You. The recording is a unique combination of modern country, classic rock ala Fleetwood Mac and Heart, and bluegrass flavors.
The songwriting team of Erika Attwater and Jonathan Richards ably carry the record, with co-writing help from Nashville tunesmiths Luke Laird (Carrie Underwood), Sam Ashworth (Sixpence None The Richer), Ross Copperman (Thompson Square), Trent Dabbs, Matthew Perryman Jones and producer Peacock.  Still Me Still You features the fiddle and mandolin of Andy Leftwich (Ricky Skaggs), guitarist Jerry McPherson (Faith Hill), bassist Mark Hill (Carrie Underwood, Kellie Pickler), drummer Steve Brewster (Dierks Bentley, Big & Rich), and the pedal steel work of Bruce Bouton (Taylor Swift, Lady Antebellum). Justin Niebank (Taylor Swift, Keith Urban) and Richie Biggs (George Strait, The Civil Wars) are slated to mix.
 
With label and release date pending, Attwater’s Still Me Still You is very much in tune with the emerging Record Business 2.0.  Peacock explains, “This is such a great time in the music business. With the crazy money off the table it’s all about the music again. The label and release options are many and varied – even exciting.  I can tell you it was a thrill to see the indie release of The Civil Wars “Barton Hollow” sitting at number one on iTunes and #12 on Billboard, knowing that the fans and just a handful of smart, committed people on laptops made it happen. But that’s Nashville. It’s a city of great music and some very enterprising people.  We’ll see where we end up with Attwater – whatever’s best for the music is what we’ll do.”
 
According to Attwater, what's best for the music is authenticity and putting the music first: "Country music is in our blood. I think we spent a few years a little unsure if it was the direction we would go, but there came a point where nothing else made sense and we knew we were home again. Now we have this opportunity to maybe contribute something to the story of country music and that's a real honor. Clear eyes, full hearts, can't lose, right?  We're definitely in it to win it!"

Peacock has played a lead role in creating major hits in three separate decades—most notably Amy Grant's "Every Heartbeat" (1991), Switchfoot's "Dare You to Move" (2002) and The Civil Wars' breakout debut album Barton Hollow (2011).  Charlie is the founder of the label re:think/EMI and former Sr. A&R consultant to Sony/ATV and EMI CMG. Named by Billboard's Encyclopedia of Record Producers as one of the 500 most important record producers in music history, the Grammy Award-winning producer has over 20 Million sales to his credit with a diverse roster of artists ranging from Al Green to Ladysmith Black Mambazo and Switchfoot.  Peacock’s director/producer credits include Any Day Now, Ten Out Of Tenn’s award-winning performance documentary feature and The Legend Hank Cochran, a documentary tribute in collaboration with BMI and Sony/ATV featuring legendary songwriter Hank Cochran (Patsy Cline, Elvis Presley) and his famous friends: Merle Haggard, Jamey Johnson, Lee Ann Womack, Elvis Costello, Cowboy Jack Clement and others.
