DIVE INTO ‘DEEP ELLUM’ WITH MISS MARCY & HER TEXAS SUGARDADDY’S

Dallas Blues Dynamo’s First Full-Length CD Ready for Release on CSP Records

DALLAS (June 29, 2015) – Armed with a stack of blues ‘n’ soul originals, a swagger in her walk and whiskey-fueled fire in her voice, Miss Marcy is ready for the microphone.

In the spirit of legendary blues divas such as Bessie Smith and Big Mama Thornton comes Dallas’ own Miss Marcy & her Texas SugarDaddy’s. Miss Marcy Rodsky and guitarist-songwriter Dave Burris, assisted by a host of talented musicians, proudly unveil Deep Ellum, the first full-length album available digitally and physically July 7, 2015 on Sunnyvale-based CSP Records.

Deep Ellum arrives a decade after the formation of Miss Marcy & her Texas SugarDaddy’s and two years after the release of the self-titled, 7-song EP (also on CSP Records) that solidified this dynamo’s standing in the Dallas-Fort Worth blues scene. An early demo recording recorded and released in 2008 was available at Miss Marcy & her Texas SugarDaddy’s shows as well as online.

Recorded and mixed at Audio Dallas Recording Studio in Garland, with production work by Paul Osborn and Jimmy Rogers, Deep Ellum offers a dozen

bourbon-soaked, grown-up blues ‘n’ soul numbers. Most of them come from Miss Marcy and Dave Burris’ pen, with the exception of covering Stuff Smith’s 1936 jazz saloon classic “If You’re a Viper.”

Deep Ellum comes chock full of scorching gems, from the smoldering manifesto “You Make Me Do Things” and the sobering tale of love gone wrong “Whiskey and Cocaine” to the ex-friend kiss-off “SugarBrown” and “C-A-S-H (That’s What Mama Wants),” a burlesque-savvy stomper that captures the essence of Miss Marcy. “C-A-S-H” is slated to be the album’s first video.

On Deep Ellum Miss Marcy and Burris are accompanied by sizzling musicians such as drummer Wes Starr, keyboardist Tim Alexander, bassist Bobby Chitwood, and harmonica virtuoso Brian “Hash Brown” Calway.

“These musicians are like in Pluto, and I’m on Earth,” says Miss Marcy about the caliber of players on the CD. “What they did to the songs was amazing. Making this CD was such a great experience. When I played the record from beginning to end I was like, “Holy shit! Who is she?’ She seems a lot more confident than I am.”

Dallas-born and El Paso-raised Miss Marcy will show us all just how confident she is in front of an adoring audience during the upcoming Deep Ellum CD Release Party Aug. 15, 2015 at Poor David’s Pub, 1313 S. Lamar St., in Dallas. The show, featuring special guest Madison King, is also a benefit for KNON-FM. Doors will open at 7 p.m. and tickets will be on sale soon.

KNON-FM is near and dear to Miss Marcy’s heart as she wrote her first song, “SugarDaddy” in 2005 specifically for a KNON-FM blues compilation album of original music. The song remains a signature that Miss Marcy performs every time she’s onstage.
