Margo Price


“Margo Price will stop music row dead in its tracks” – NPR 

Hard work, grit, and pristine musicality steeped in real life experience from the school of hard knocks - that’s Nashville. That's Country music. That’s Margo Price. Price is the first country artist signed to Jack White’s Third Man Records, and her debut LP Midwest Farmer’s Daughter is currently available digitally but will be released physically on July 29th. Watch Margo Price raise hell in the new video for her track Hurtin' (On The Bottle) via The Fader, who have called Price “country’s next star”.

Midwest Farmer’s Daughter was recorded at the legendary Sun Studio and mixed at Ardent Studios in Memphis, TN. Produced by Alex Munoz and Matt Ross-Spang, the songs were cut live to analog tape, with Margo and her band working the night shift at Sun after the museum had closed. Most importantly, this collection of ten original cuts takes root in actual events in Price’s life, from her upbringing on a family farm in Illinois to the musical community she has built around her in East Nashville and every tragic or tragicomic turn along the way.

“Price possess a Loretta Lynn voice and the no-nonsense attitude to match” – Rolling Stone

‘The bottle’ looms large over Midwest Farmer’s Daughter. “I killed the angel on my shoulder, with a bottle of tequila” she declares with conviction on album centerpiece Since You Put Me Down, and things only get more punch drunk on Hurtin’ (On The Bottle), which Price co-wrote with Caitlin Rose.

Though Midwest Farmer’s Daughter is Price’s debut she has already stacked up some lofty comparisons. Rolling Stone Country recently raved “Her voice aches with the same world weariness that permeated Loretta Lynn and Tammy Wynette’s songs”.

Said The News Yorker, “To listen to a song for the first time, by a performer you don’t know, and feel uncomplicated joy, with awe laced through it, is a rare and wonderful thing. That’s how I felt when I first heard Margo Price.”
