Edan Archer’s Americana songs give music fans an escape to an alt-country world created by stacked harmonies, classic songwriting, and rock edge.

Archer unveils her debut stunner Journey Proud.  Her swampy sensibilities come through loud and clear in the grooves of Journey Proud, her voice is sultry as sweet tea and crackles like the ever-present heat lightning of her Everglades upbringing. All moonshine and honey, she gets gritty with dulcimer magic and casts spells with intimate ballads and fingerpicking, alternate tunings, and rich effects.

As she pulls from her varied influences–Appalachian folk, country, and rock, she creates music that’s familiar yet fresh, music that reflects the listener’s life experiences back to them. There are swampy songs, honky-tonk tunes, alt-country cruisers, and a samba-tinged nod or two to her Cuban heritage on Journey Proud, woven together with her direct lyrical challenges to society’s idea of gender roles and femininity, her throwback vocal vibrato, and fiery fingerpicking. She sings of heartbreak, rebellion, substance abuse, hard work, and spirituality–a micro-verse of American life told through American musical styles. The album encompasses tales of addiction, death, and even a bank robbery (a true story)–the subjects may be tough, but it’s a beautiful listen.
