ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Kara Suzanne self-releases her sophomore album 'Parlor Walls' with a theme of warning against modern-day distractions. With her unpredicted love of sci-fi, Kara's album title was inspired by the 'TV Parlors' Bradbury envisioned controlling humankind in the not too distant future.

"Parlor Walls" was produced and engineered by Bryan Pugh, and recorded at Dreamland Recording Studio, the 19th century-old former St. John's Catholic Church nestled in the upper Hudson River Valley near Woodstock playing host to such artists as 10,000 Maniacs, Herbie Hancock, Buckwheat Zydeco and Joan Jett.
Esteemed in such NY venues as Mercury Lounge, The Studio at Webster Hall, Irving Plaza, and Gramercy Theatre, Kara Suzanne has kindled both film and music festivals from Sundance to SXSW. Continuously on the rise, her debut album with her backing band the Gojos, "Aumsville", topped the Independent Music Awards' Best Album of the Year in 2006 Vox Populi and Paste Magazine’s Recommended Album, June 2008.
"I was never one for watching parlor's walls," one of the key lyrics destined to create the title song is also an idea taken from Ray Bradbury's Fahrenheit 451, which launched Kara's curious vision of a future with a humanity far removed from itself. "I wrote Parlor Walls with the intention of naming the things I've used to distract myself from being in the present. Each song on the album is based on one of these things. Fear, infatuation, obsession, desperation, nostalgia, lust...." – Kara Suzanne.
Despite the inevitable financial endeavors in releasing an album in today’s DIY times, “Parlor Walls” was eagerly executed through a communal effort of friends pre-purchasing the record and donating to the project. "Parlor Walls" is now open and ready for release.



"Part sullen cowgirl, part seductive cabaret singer and all soulful folk-rock songstress... " – Jack Douglas (producer, engineer for John Lennon, Aerosmith, New York Dolls)

"Kara Suzanne's voice is a cross between Aimee Mann's velvet texture and Fiona Apple's soul, with hints of Dolly Parton's country vibrato." – Joel Silverstein, Inquirer & Mirror
