Nashville-based LGBTQ+ indie rock artist Abby Nissenbaum announces new EP Unreliable Narrator, out 2/24/23 and “serves to further showcase Abby’s impeccable feel for feelings and abilities as both an instrumentalist and a vocalist.” (Earmilk)
The highly-anticipated EP features 6 songs recorded between Los Angeles and Nashville (at the famed Sound Emporium Studios), with production credits split between Riley Geare (Unknown Mortal Orchestra, Caroline Rose) and Matt Qualls (Blvck Hippie, Speck Joliet).
Three singles from the album were released in 2022, including the critically acclaimed, macabre slow rocker Funeral Processional (featuring trombone from YouTube’s most-subscribed brass artist and Stranger Things music director, Christopher Bill).
Unreliable Narrator explores themes of depression, isolation, heartbreak, addictions, and unreliable self-narratives. Her music has been featured across international outlets including Earmilk, Notion, Psychedelic Baby Mag, Fab UK Magazine, and She Makes Music UK.
Nissenbaum’s emotive, bright vocal performances pay homage to 60s female rock singers and blend with contemporary indie-alt rock elements to create compelling pieces with an unexpected sound.
A lifelong musician, classically-trained soprano, and musical theater performer, Nissenbaum pursued a career in social psychology and data analytics before rediscovering her music roots during her time as graduate student at the University of Memphis.
