Autumn's sophomore album, "Velvet Sky" is a love letter to the moments in life that enliven our spirits, stir our dreams, and touch our souls. Marking a significant artistic stride, Autumn's eloquent performance and seasoned songwriting resonates wildly throughout, shining deep into the heart of life. Influenced by a mosaic of sounds, "Velvet Sky" is a medley of gospel-inspired balladry and Folk/Americana, masterfully fused together with Autumn's unique style and sensibility. Teaming up once again with producers Walt Wilkins and Tim Lorsch (Sugarcane, 2006), "Velvet Sky" combines uncluttered instrumentation with potent, expressive vocals, creating a sparse yet resounding musical experience. Along with seven new originals including "Rain Down", "Trees", and "Higher", Autumn enlists Walt Wilkin's songwriting dexterity, performing his tracks "Velvet Sky", "Lessons Never Learned", "Trains I Missed" and the Wilkin's and Liz Rose collaboration, "We Made the Spirits Move". A galvanizing version of Patty Griffin's "Nobody's Crying" compliments the vulnerable cadence of four other Autumn originals, "Sunny", "Cowgirl Confessions", "Eagles", and "Paint". Serving as the female sidekick for the #1 rated "JB and Sandy Morning Show" on Mix 94.7 KAMX Austin, Autumn's listening fanbase quickly bloomed throughout Texas with the release of her first album "Sugarcane". The Oklahoma native first took piano lessons at age 7, her repertoire soon expanding to voice, drums, flute, and guitar. With scholarship offers from across the country, Autumn chose the prestigious music program at the University of Texas in Austin, graduating in 2004 with a degree in Classical Piano. She attests that it was during these formative college years, she discovered and honed a talent and desire for songwriting. 'Velvet Sky' was recorded in Nashville, Tennesee at the Dog Den, engineered and mixed by Bill McDermott. Also recorded in Austin, Texas at Jumping Dog, engineered by Rob Flynt, with a live recording of piano/vocal on "Paint" at The Zone in Austin, Texas. In addition to Autumn on vocals and specific piano and organ tracks, she is joined by Sam Baker, Tina Mitchell Wilkins, Ryan Turner, Walt Wilkins, Josh and Christy Grider, Tim Lorsch, and renowned Texas hippietonkers, The Mystiqueros.

I love Velvet Sky. She does Walt's songs justice. And that alone is saying something. I never thought I could listen to anybody else sing "Trains" but Autumn does a great job with it.

Great album, strong lyrics, soulful tone and equally soulful songchoice. This girl is going to be a star. I have seen her play live, she can wail on the keys and sing her ass off with true conviction. Passionate and musical, she's got it. Get the album, its what TX music is all about.

This sweet-baby-Autumn can croon with the best of 'em, and I recommend picking up this gem. This is the kind of music you make a playlist for in your iPod.
