Description

Five tracks off the debut release from Charlie Faye & The Fayettes, plus one exclusive previously-unreleased recording from the demo sessions.

Charlie Faye & the Fayettes craft smart soul-pop that merges the swinging, swaying sound and style of ‘60s girl groups with a vibe that’s so current, they’re already dancing to the forefront of the retro-revival movement.

Faye and her Fayettes BettySoo and Akina Adderley make music, sweet music, all right, with an irresistible groove that'll get you moving. The trio’s shared height (they’re all within a half-inch of 5-foot-1) and distinct ethnicities (Jewish, Korean and African-American) just adds cute to their considerable charms. But all the cuteness in the world wouldn’t matter without songs, and here, Faye’s great ear and intelligent writing come to the fore. For the group's debut record, she penned 11 tracks that marry beguiling lyrics with incredibly catchy melodies. The album was recorded in Los Angeles and Austin (Faye's hometown) by producer/engineer Dave Way.
