The Remedy Club, the Irish husband-and-wife Americana/Roots duo comprising KJ McEvoy and Aileen Mythen, will release their debut album Lovers, Legends & Lost Causes on October 8th via High Flying Disc Records.

The duo are known for their tight vocal harmonies and intelligent songwriting while McEvoy has been singled out for praise as a guitar player of great expressiveness and technical aplomb and Mythen for her stunningvocal performances.

Lovers, Legends and Lost Causesfeatures the accomplished string playing of Kj’s sister Eleanor McEvoy who joined forces with a sterling troupe of Ireland’s hottest musicians.  The album was produced by The Remedy Club at Astakalapa Studios, Gorey, Co. Wexford, Ireland and mixed in Nashville by 5-time Grammy award winner Ray Kennedy (Steve Earle, Lucinda Williams, Willie Nelson) and Mark Petaccia (Jason Isbell, Lindi Ortega).

According to Mythen, “We wanted to create an album of music that we would like to hear ourselves while also paying homage to such musical heroes as Tom Waits, Hank Williams andDjango Reinhardt.The style of music fits really well with me personally at this point in my life. I think it’s important to have honesty in the music and singing these songs feels very truthful.”

Nowhere is this sentiment more evident on the album than in its’ lead single Come On, with its’ starkly honest refrain and wonderful vocal performances, which highlights the chemistry between the two. 

McEvoy adds, “Although we’re influenced by different musical styles, including blues, folk and rock n’ roll, our country influences are very much to the fore on this album. There are three main themes running through the album, with songs about Love (‘Last Song’, ‘I Miss You’), Legends (‘When Tom Waits Up’, ‘Listening to Hank Williams’) and Lost Causes (‘Bottom of the Hill’, ‘Get Away With It').”
