NEW YORK (February 4, 2022) – Red Molly’s Abbie Gardner announces the release of her solo single, “Three Quarter Time,” on February 10. It’s off the album, DobroSinger, due out May 13. The single gently waltzes into Valentine’s Day with sentiments of lovers’ romantic embrace.

She recorded this song late at night in her tiny home studio, all alone. The Beard Deca-Phonic resonator guitar romances with a woody, grounded dobro sound. The lyric, “leave the flowers in the dirt, leave the cork in the wine,” goes against traditional romantic gestures and towards something more meaningful. She says, “I’m releasing this song close to Valentine’s Day to remind people that they don’t need flowers and cards and chocolate to feel romantic. I love thinking of a couple playing the song and swaying barefoot in the kitchen together.”

Gardner traveled across the country as a solo act, but when everything shut down in 2020, she had the opportunity to make the record she’s always dreamed of making. Using a tiny closet recording studio in her home in the shadow of NYC, she gathered a collection of songs. She recorded them raw – singing and playing without a band, without separating the voice from her instrument, and without any studio tricks to hide behind. The result is intimate – you can hear every breath, every chuckle as if you are in the room with her.
