Song premiere: "Earth Angel" by Katy Guillen and the Girls

Song premiere: "Earth Angel" by Katy Guillen and the Girls

We are happy to premiere the latest track from Katy Guillen & the Girls, “Earth Angel.”
The trio releases the song right before descending upon Memphis to represent Kansas City in the International Blues Challenge next week. The KC kickoff show is this Saturday, January 18, at BB’s Lawnside BBQ. KG & the Girls will play the IBC as well as a few dates in Nashville and New Orleans over the next week.
“Earth Angel” is a ballad that successfully packs in every element that gives KG & the Girls its signature style, which is rooted in the blues but draws from rock and jazz influences. It begins with Guillen’s masterful guitar work and carefully weaves in her compelling vocals with  the always-on-point rhythm section of Claire Adams and Stephanie Williams. Though the track clocks in at nearly eight minutes, it gradually accelerates along with a balance of delicacy and force that gives it a satisfying sense of brevity and completeness.
The song was recorded, mixed, and mastered by Duane Trower at Weights & Measures Soundlab.
The band is offering up the track as a free download for one week, so head over to their Bandcamp and get your download.
Also, head over to BB’s this Saturday at 9:00 p.m. to see them before they leave for Memphis. AJ Gaither will be opening up the show and joining the band on a few tunes. Facebook event page.
