With five non-stop years in the rearview mirror, American Country artist and social influencer Claudia Hoyser dropped her debut full-length record Red Light’s Turning Green last week on June 25th.

Dropped to coincide on both her and her co-writer (Tony Gross ), the album features 14 original songs that were recorded on the same console that  was used to record Metallica’s “Kill Em All.” (#funfact) In keeping with an organic studio vibe, Hoyser recorded with a hand-held microphone sans handphones and several of her original scratch vocal takes were often used in the final mix.

Leading up to this much-awaited release, Hoyser built a loyal fan base with her weekly Facebook music video series, “Hoyser Country Monday,” which highlighted her fingerprint vocal style on over 100 classic country songs, with a few originals sprinkled in the mix.

Gretsch is excited to host an upcoming July 19 Acoustic Session with the talented female country artist on our social channels, featuring a performance of “Didn’t Do the Pouring” on her trusty Sunburst Gretsch G5031FT Rancher™ Dreadnought.

 Mark your calendars, and head here to order the album or stream the new tunes.
