Little Darlin’ from Jessica Stiles

Little Darlin' - Jessica StilesJessica Stiles has announced the digital release of her new five song EP, Little Darlin’, with contributions from Mike Compton, Charlie Cushman, Josh Williams, Shad Cobb, and Kent Blanton. A pair of songs from the album will be made into a 45 RPM vinyl record, to hit later this year, but the digital files are available now in iTunes, and for radio programmers at Airplay Direct.

It’s an interesting mix of styles, with clear elements of bluegrass blended with folk, Americana and old time country music influences. One of them, Answer Him, is her own composition.

A number of guest vocalists are featured with Jessica here: Terry Eldridge, Nora Jane Struthers, Shawn Camp, and Lester Armistead.

Audio samples from the EP can be accessed via iTunes and Airplay Direct.

In addition to her writing, recording and performing work, Stiles hosts a weekly radio program on WAMU’s Bluegrass Country called Stiles of Bluegrass, airing Saturday mornings at 11:00 a.m. (eastern).
