Boys Club For Girls Album Release w/ Billy Allen & The Pollies

When Vanessa Olivarez heard Amie Miriello sing “I Want to Know What Love Is” at an all-ladies ‘80s tribute concert in their native Nashville, it was love at first listen. 

Olivarez, focused mainly on writing for BMG at the time, set up a songwriting session with Miriello, who writes for Universal. Minutes into their first meeting, it was clear this wasn’t just another labored Music City co-write. And the resulting song, the fiery “Romance Is Dead,” was a far cry from schmaltzy ‘80s balladry.

A few years of intense personal growth and a global pandemic later, and the power-duo sisterhood of Boys Club for Girls is finally ready to release their full-length self-titled debut of Americana alt-folk and country-rock on March 24 via Brooklyn Basement Records.

Boys Club music is deeply melodic and accessible, but simmers in a moody brew of elegant atmospherics underneath. And the harmonies! Much of the lead vocal is really a duet sung in perfect lush synergy, a feat attributable to both ladies’ stints singing backup for acts like Sugarland, Tanya Tucker, Katy Perry, Zac Brown Band, and many more. 

Boys Club for Girls, then, sounds as if Under the Pink-era Tori Amos time-traveled back to ‘70s Laurel Canyon to partner with Linda Ronstadt at her sultriest for a trippier take on the Indigo Girls (with Fleetwood Mac as the backing band). The album was recorded before, during, and after the pandemic at Blackbird Studio with producer Tim Craven (Josh Ritter, Brothers Osborne), and features the singles “Bad Luck Baby,” “Not Just Yet,” “The Weatherman,” and “5 O’Clock Shadow.”
