HOWLING BELLS FRONTWOMAN COMES TO PIE & VINYL FOR AN INTIMATE ACOUSTIC SHOW
Juanita Stein is best known as the front woman for the Australian band the Howling Bells, she is going it solo for her latest release America on Nude Records. On July 31st she will be visiting Pie & Vinyl for a special live in store performance.
Juanita and her brother Joel formed Howling Bells along with long time collaborator Glenn Moule. The band released four albums and took part in headline tours and festivals around the world. It was during her pregnancy that she began working on her solo project.
Juanita describes the album: “This record is an ode to the dark heart of America. Of times gone and times to come. Dusty trails, a whimsical 50s suburbia and the haze of the 1960s. I’ve forever idealised American life – growing up in Australia we were fed the American dream through film and television. The dichotomy between what was real and a dream is forever intriguing to me. The music of Roy Orbison, Dusty Springfield, Lee and Nancy and Patsy Cline all informed my musical sensibilities. They opened up this wide screen universe for me.”
“This record is an ode to the dark heart of America. Of times gone and times to come.”
