Dynamic singer/songwriter GINA SICILIA will release her eighth studio album, Heard the Lie, on August 31, 2018 via Blue Elan Records. Produced by Grammy-nominated Dave Darling, Siclia’s remarkable eighth body of work in just a little over a decade, is a testament to her ever evolving love and practice of blues and country music.

Heard The Lie is also nuanced with prominent Americana flourishes. “Bad Things” boasts twangy guitar licks, while the loping, mid-tempo “Sugar” harkens back to ’50s and ’60s country ballads. Although this Americana inspiration is partly geographic — SICILIA relocated from Philadelphia to Nashville and has since been enveloped within that musical community — it’s also a reflection of her diverse influences. Over the last decade or so, SICILIA has opened for Joe Bonamassa, Kenny Wayne Shepherd, Joan Osborne and Beth Hart, among others. SICILIA integrates down-to-the-roots inspirations seamlessly within the album’s bluesy moments. Such as the strutting “Brighter Day,” an upbeat duet with Grammy-nominated Janiva Magness, who also co-wrote the song, and the piano-tickled slow burn “Man In The Sky,” a showcase for SICILIA ‘s formidable, smoky voice.

Since nabbing a Blues Music Award nomination for Best New Artist in 2008, SICILIA has enjoyed great chart and radio success in the genre. Tug Of War reached #3 on the Contemporary Blues Album chart and was the #1 roots album in Tennessee. “Abandoned” reached #2 on the Contemporary Blues Song chart, “He Called Me Baby” reached #1 on the Soul Blues Radio chart, “I Don’t Want To Be In Love” reached #3 on the Contemporary Blues Radio chart.
