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

Dropped to coincide on both her and co-writer Tony Gross ‘s birthday, 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.

The talented female country artist gave Gretsch an exclusive performance of “Didn’t Do the Pouring” on her trusty lefty Sunburst Gretsch G5031FT Rancher™ Dreadnought.
