The music is a patchwork amalgam of influences, including: twangy Southern rock (they've opened for the Drive-By Truckers), reverb-soaked psychedelia reminiscent of early My Morning Jacket or fellow Athens residents Phosphorescent, soaring guitar solos à la Neil Young and Crazy Horse, rhythmic jangle from that other Athens band, REM, multi-part vocal harmonies (which every band ought to have, dammit), and, weaving through it all, lyrical slide guitar. - Vox.com

The missing link between indie-rock and classic country western is Atlanta based Neighbor Lady. Comprised of Emily Braden, Jack Blauvelt, Merideth Hanscom, and Andrew McFarland. Neighbor Lady began as a solo project for Emily Braden, writing music by herself and for herself; lyrically, the songs chronicle events in her personal life and her emotions surrounding those events. After high school, she moved to Athens, Georgia, met guitarist Jack Blauvelt and formed Neighbor Lady, a small band centered on supporting Emily’s songwriting. As Braden puts it, “Neighbor Lady started because I was too nervous to play a show by myself, so I asked my friends to play with me.”

Neighbor Lady’s debut LP “Maybe Later” consists of 7 songs that introduce the band’s foundations of country kissed alt-rock in a poignantly sweet and evocative style- the album shifts fluidly between the dreamy, stripped down, aching melodies of just Braden and her guitar to the powerfully noisy and fiery hooks of the full band. Neighbor Lady’s momentum is indebted to their blend of a powerfully dynamic band paired with Braden’s soaring vocal melodies, creating a sensation both comforting yet heartbreaking in the same moments.

For listeners of Fleetwood Mac, Wilco, Patsy Cline, and Jenny Lewis.

Friendship Fever is happy to close the polarizing gap between here and there with the release of “Maybe Later” on May 11th, 2018.
