“hard-rocking new single” - GUITAR WORLD
Tallest Man Records is excited to announce the release of the new single “I Want Your Trouble” from Nashville’s Brandy Zdan from her forthcoming album Secretear, out May 11.
This song started in a very modern day and millennial fashion, in a text message. Early on in their courtship, Zdan received a text from her now husband, Aaron Haynes (of The Texas Gentlemen), saying “I WANT YOUR TROUBLE.” Zdan immediately knew she had to turn that text into a song, and not just any song, but a kick you over one at that. Haynes and Zdan wrote the song together and Haynes plays drums on the track.
Secretear Zdan’s sophomore album, is a Spanish word for a confidential conversation or secret. It was co-produced by Zdan and Teddy Morgan (John Oates, Trace Adkins, Carl Broemel), featuring a rhythm section comprised of Haynes on drums and My Morning Jacket’s Tom Blankenship on bass and Carl Broemel on pedal steel and guitar. These new songs see Zdan stepping back into her rock roots and the music she grew up on (60’s and 70’s rock n roll). For this album Zdan shed a lot of her personal skin and musical past, letting go of those things that held her back from being the best version of herself. She really put everything on the line for this record and gave all of herself, so much so that she blew out her voice and ran her fingers raw from playing guitar the first week of recording.
Zdan who now calls Nashville home is a native of Canada. She has honed her craft writing mature indie-rock and pop songs with hauntingly gorgeous melodies and edgy arrangements, in Winnipeg as half of the critically acclaimed gothic folk/roots duo Twilight Hotel. The duo went on to have two albums nominated for prestigious Juno Awards. Upon coming to the U.S. Zdan landed in Austin, joining the all-girl Americana outfit, The Trishas, where she acted as lead guitarist and utility player (lap steel, accordion), before moving on to a solo career. To support this new single Zdan just finished up a tour with Doyle Bramhall, and will head out on the road with Buddy Guy later this month.
