Who said you had to write a record before releasing singles?
Leaving convention at the door, Denver born and bred Dressy Bessy plan to release a series of singles this summer rather than wait for its next album, which is tentatively scheduled for a 2013 release.
Starting with “Hey, Alice!” as the first in a number of singles for its “Summer Singles” collection, Dressy Bessy look to create music and get it to its fans without waiting for the obligatory full-length album. Subsequent digital singles will be released in July and September via the band’s website and through ITunes.
Dressy Bessy formed in Denver in 1997 and by 1999 released its first album “Pink Hearts Yellow Moons” which featured songs in Jamie Babbit’s indie film “But I’m A Cheerleader.” Since 2003 the band has had appearances on the Late Night with Conan Obrien show and Last Call with Carson Daly. Dressy Bessy will be playing two gigs in Denver this week, first in-studio for “Open Air” on Colorado Public Radio May 23 at 2 p.m. mountain time and at the Gothic Theatre May 25.
“We’re so ready to start playing shows and we’ve added some of the early hits into the set list,” said lead singer and guitarist, Tammy Ealom in a recent press release.
