  • £16.99

British Country singer-songwriter Anna Howie releases her debut album ‘The Friday Night Club’ featuring 11 original songs, some were penned in (and about) time spent in Nashville, others were inspired by family and friends, or based on the strange and lonely time of lockdown. Though the album was already planned, ‘The Friday Night Club’ itself was born in lockdown. Anna initially used the online sessions as a way of keeping on playing, but also have an audience to try out her new material on. As a performer who relishes that connection that comes only from playing in a room to a live audience, Anna was initially reluctant. The feedback kept her going however, and she ended up doing 28 sessions in a row. Those shows eventually garnered nearly two million views! As Anna says herself, she accidentally created a community.

Anna had initially planned to go back to Nashville to make this album. She had previously spent time in Music City, taking in a songwriting camp with legendary writer Gretchen Peters and also recording her last EP ‘An Idiot’s Guide to Love’, which was produced by Grammy Award Winning Producer/ Guitarist Bob Britt. ‘A Bird Sings In Nashville’ which features on this album was literally written on a Nashville porch swing seat! However, with Covid making travel impossible, Anna was delighted to be able to team up with super-talented producer and multi-instrumentalist Lukas Drinkwater. She created ‘The Friday Night Club’ over a period of six months at his Polyphonic Studio in the UK.
