Lorie Jo Bridges Lorie Bridges Nashville Lorie Jo Bridges is set to unleash her gritty, life-inspired Americana EP, River Town, in early 2017. Nominated for Best of Campgrounds at the International Walnut Valley Festival [Winfield], her debut solo album details some of the hard knocks of living life on the edge of heartache, longing, and betrayal. Hosting songs about facing the daily reality of being human, the EP’s tracks discuss living on the impoverished side of the economic divide in “Home,” the desire to drink your heartache away in “Drink Until I Drown,” and revisits gloomy traditions of folk music in the dark tale of domestic violence and murder found in the title track, “River Town.” This album will be the fifth release featuring Bridges as a singer-songwriter and marks her first studio produced solo album. With River Town currently in the works, release date yet to be announced, Bridges is rolling out a nation wide acoustic tour in support of the upcoming EP. Known for her live show and unshakable stage presence, Lorie Jo’s unique vocal rasp is complimented by a well-balanced delivery of dynamics that fully features her 3.2 octave range and is backed by her chunky rhythmic acoustic guitar, harmonica and percussion. Lorie Jo Bridges is an up-and-coming, Nashville based, singer-songwriter and aspiring children’s book author. She is the founder of the South 40 Roots Festival (2004-2009) and currently works as a VJ host of The Curve on DittyTV, bringing you the latest in Roots and Americana music videos.
