With ‘Valley Low’, southern Gothic chanteuse Betty Black invites listeners into her world where vivid transfixing narratives and contagious melodies laced with psychedelic rock, ‘60’s pop exotica, gritty electro-pop and dark post-punk beckon you down the rabbit hole. Produced by Sylvia Black and co-produced by Rudyard Lee Cullers (Yeah Yeah Yeahs/ Basement Jaxx/James Iha), the set includes singles “Come Back Lover”, Heartless” and the tripped-out title track alongside fiery rockers “Black Car” and “Baby Loves His Gun”, and the sultry tranquilized ballad “Drive”.

Happy to say that the lil lounge act I started late last year will continue its residency at Happy Ending but has been moved to Thursdays starting mid Feb.! Also we’ll see you over at The Roxy Hotel Tuesday Feb 16th for an additional venue.
