    MISS SHEVAUGHN & YUMA WRAY TO RELEASE THEIR DEBUT ALBUM “WE’RE FROM HERE” SEPTEMBER 11TH!

    Miss Shevaughn & Yuma Wray play American music. They’ve traveled the country following the threads that tie the American narrative together and they’ve woven those threads into a sound all their own. The duo multi-task on guitars, banjo, mandolin, organ, glockenspiel, lap steel and more to bring to life the urgency of Southern Soul, the earthiness of classic country and the pioneering spirit of ’60s and ’70s Blues Rock. Miss Shevaughn has a truly powerful voice that ignites, roars and flickers and Yuma Wray has at his disposal an arsenal of instrumental talents that underscore the duo’s unique, honest and compelling storytelling.

    Miss Shevaughn and Yuma Wray spent 2011 on the road, living in their Honda Element, finding their way and finding their sound. The results of this quest can be found in their debut album, We’re From Here, available September 11, 2012.

    Miss Shevaughn and Yuma Wray will also be traversing this fine country this fall as part of their tour in support of We’re From Here. Tour dates will be announced soon.

  • REVIEWS

    • “Every beat, every note from Yuma Wray's off-kilter licks, every distinctive moan and tremble delivered by Miss Shevaughn is carefully, beautifully placed. A stunner.” – NO DEPRESSION
    • “Haunting and beautiful, this is a lovely album from two talented performers.” – NEW TIMES SLO
    • “Exciting duo lay down the result of a 2011 road trip. Miss Shevaughn has a wonderful voice taken from the country tradition; and song writing fitting into the acoustic folk mold. This is juxtaposed alongside Yuma Wray, who plays a lot of distorted guitar bringing to mind ‘60s and ‘70s blues rock (amongst many other instruments). The combination is an interesting one, and it works well.” – AMERICANA UK
    • “We're From Here is a stunning and audacious debut - this record sounds like they've made an Oscar winning movie based on the Great American Novel. Miss Shevaughn joins Emmylou Harris and KD Lang in the realm of the great female American storytellers. She is a force of nature, and Yuma Wray provides the perfect home in which to raise her stories. Forget about genres and categories, this is great music.” – Tony Conley / ROCK GUITAR DAILY
    • “Miss Shevaughn & Yuma Wray’s We’re From Here is a classic American road trip story, with the duo expanding its sound from sparse folk balladry to psychedelic swamp stomp.” - SUN JOURNAL
    • “We're From Here, the new album from Miss Shevaughn and Yuma Wray, is a folk-drenched look into questions of contentment, laments over new beginnings, and self-acceptance, with Miss Shevaughn sounding an awful lot like Joni Mitchell as she tells her passionate tales.” - CHARLESTON CITY PAPER
    • “Achingly beautiful folk blues.” - Steve Wildsmith/ THE DAILY TIMES
    • “Think back on the material Daniel Lanois produced for Emmylou Harris - this music is by turns ethereal, haunting, lonely, ferocious and bluesy, painting American landscapes in pure black and white. The harmonies are smooth and go places you wouldn't normally expect. Frisby’s alto has a world-weary and strongly emotional feel. She is, to be sure, a great singer.” - CONNECT SAVANNAH
    • “We’re From Here is a classic American road trip story, unfolding both the personal and family histories as well as the musical influences on both songwriters. It serves as a map of sorts, a suggested travel route exploring American music, identity and the concept of home.” - MOUNTAIN DEMOCRAT
    • “Miss Shevaughn has a melodic songbird of a voice that she uses to wring and wrest the emotional grit from the words she sings.” - Ariana Kramer / TAOS NEWS
    • “Miss Shevaughn & Yuma Wray multi-task on guitars, banjo, mandolin, organ, glockenspiel, lap steel and more to bring to life the urgency of Southern Soul, the earthiness of classic country and the pioneering spirit of 60's and 70's Blues Rock. Miss Shevaughn has a truly powerful voice that ignites, roars and flickers and Yuma Wray has at his disposal an arsenal of instrumental talents that underscore the duo's unique, honest and compelling storytelling. - BROOKLYN NIGHT OUT
    • “A fifteen song collection of Americana music, We’re From Here seamlessly jumps from sparse folk tunes to fuzzy guitar filled garage rock. Miss Shevaughn’s haunting vocals weave through the sonic landscape provided by Yuma Wray, and when it is his time to sing the contrast is powerful. The songs “Pneumonia” and “Anniversary Song” show off the beauty of their music and her vocal abilities and when they switch gears on the tracks “Keep On Waitin’” and “Cloin’s Lament” they dive head first into the world of dirty guitar riffs and angry rhythms. Their music is more than just songs, each tune is a story and as story tellers it is up to Miss Shevaughn & Yuma Wray to bring these tales to life.” - Chris Martin / ATLANTA EXAMINER
    • “Their blend of country, folk, rock, and blues is a thing of beauty, and I think they should be applauded for making the music they love.” – MUSIC. DEFINED.
    • “Miss Shevaughn and Yuma Wray - Funny name, awesome Americana.” – TACOMA WEEKLY VOLCANO
    • “The guitar work and vocals are superb.” - DAILY EASTERN NEWS
    • “Miss Shevaughn and Yuma Wray’s 2011 was spent on the road living out of their Honda Element, searching out their sound and cataloging their experiences and thoughts. Their time on the road was not wasted as the result is Americana personified – an amalgamation of elemental roots music into songs of real substance a soundtrack for a journey on the rural routes and black tops.” - BEAT SURRENDER
    • “Warm heart and fuzzed out soul come together on Miss Shevaughn & Yuma Wray’s new album "We're From Here." - JESTER JAY MUSIC
    • “Nostalgic and reminiscent, We’re From Here is packed full of personality. Miss Shevaughn and Yuma Wray are both masters at merging musical genres and as a result, the album is original and full of songs that aren’t like anything else.” - SHOW ME SOMETHING DIFFERENT: UK
    • “Miss Shevaughn and Yuma Wray snake a highway around Americana, folk and good old rock & roll. It really is fabulous music making and bursting with talent, imagination and character. I could listen to it all day.” – UNDERCOVER
    • “Miss Shevaughn & Yuma have seen the U.S. and they sing about it with heartfelt soul and just the right amount of indie charisma. There’s nothing stuffy or snobby about their music. It clearly shines through as honest and poetic.” - John Powell / YOU HEAR THIS
    • “If I had a million dollars, I would pay Miss Shevaughn to sing me to sleep every night for a year. I'm not picky -- she could Skype or phone it in while she's on tour. We're From Here is one of the best albums that's come my way this year.” - ADOBE & TEARDROPS
    • “Featuring an eclectic mix of instruments including – but not limited to – guitar, banjo, mandolin, percussion, glockenspiel and lap steel, this duo has a bigger sound than most listeners dare to imagine. Strength in voice and instrumental ability drives their songwriting excellence.” - THE VERMONT CYNIC
    • “Unique, honest and compelling storytelling.” - YOUNG MANHATTANITE
    • “The word “sprawling” certainly applies to We’re From Here, the new album by Miss Shevaughn & Yuma Wray. The duo spent the year on the road (29 states, 125 shows) and the new songs reflect their experiences and evolution.” - THE PROVIDENCE PHOENIX
    • Miss Shevaughn and Yuma Wray have put together a record that is simply stunning in its scope and in the sheer size of its sound.... this is a tremendous debut.” - WHEN YOU MOTOR AWAY
    • “Ever since I have gotten my ears on this excellent work of Americana and folk, I haven't been able to stop listening. A voice that captivates, Miss Shevaughn has to be one of the most passionate vocalists I've heard. Add in the mysterious Yuma Wray and his magical guitar skills, these two seem to be the perfect mix for creating music that has the power to make the burliest of men weep.” - THE RECORD STACHE
