Mandy Barnett laughs when she’s asked What took you so long? to make Strange Conversation, her progressive take on the postmodern American songbook. Sure, she’s a classicist who’s channeled Patsy Cline in a theatrical musical, recorded classic country songs with legendary producer Owen Bradley, and transfixed known musicos Seymour Stein, Arif Mardin and Ahmet Ertegun with her timeless stylings. The truth is every album I’ve made has been Americana, even that first Asylum album with the Jim Lauderdale songs, but the arrangements were more timeless, more to the classic songbook. And Americana’s a broad genre that has elements of pop and retro, soul music. So this time, I leaned away from what people expect from me - and into things that made me reach, and stretch.

Listen to Strange Conversation by Mandy Barnett - a new album (release date: September 21, 2018) @ New Releases No. Produced by Marco Giovino and Doug Lancio for Thirty Tigers and Barnett’s own label Dame Productions, Strange Conversation places the ebony-haired vocalist between obscure vintage pop and modern progressive songwriting. Think Lee Hazlewood and the Tams meet Tom Waits and Greg Garing with a little Mable John thrown in. If it sounds too good to be true, Hazlewood’s The Fool, the Tams’ It’s All Right (You’re Just In Love), Waits’ Puttin’ On The Dog, and Garing’s Dream Too Real To Hold, are all part of the conversation, a musky brew of desire, rapture, and discovery.

Strange Conversation is Mandy Barnett's progressive take on the postmodern American songbook. In between touring performing art centers, historic theaters and concert halls, and making gallery-exhibited artwork, Barnett embraced thoughts of finding different material to record. Produced by Marco Giovino and Doug Lancio for Thirty Tigers and Barnett’s own label Dame Productions, Strange Conversation places the vocalist between obscure vintage pop and modern progressive songwriting.

Mandy Barnett casts her net wide on Strange Conversation, her first album since a 2013 tribute to Don Gibson and, really, her first album not to be in a strictly traditional country vein. Working with co-producers Doug Lancio and Marco Giovino, who have respectively collaborated with Patty Griffin and Robert Plant, Barnett decides to play a little bit of everything that constitutes Americana in 2018.
