ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
PLAY Entertainment has announced that it has partnered with Abbie Huxley to release his indie-pop gem Pop[R.E.D.] to national radio. The album, which was written, performed, and produced by Huxley, reveals a multifaceted artist coming to grips with love, addiction and personal loss. With the candor of his lyrics, soaring beautiful melodies, and the haunting quality of his songs, Abbie Huxley is gaining fans in the States and abroad two ears at a time.   

"The thing I dig is that somebody would feel something from listening to one of my songs. It's that simple--but it's easier said than done. I listen to music to put me in a certain mood, so to be able to do that for somebody else means everything to me as an artist and as a producer," says Huxley.

As well as writing all the songs, Huxley produced and performed everything on the album except for bass, which was played beautifully by Mark Beck. "It was more a budgeting decision than anything else...as in there was no budget, so I was forced into it. I got to know all the guys at Roland tech support really well." Another factor influencing Pop[R.E.D.]'s production was the passing of Huxley's father from a rare inoperable cancer. Huxley says, "I didn't really get serious about recording until about a year after he died. I got horribly depressed and my drinking turned into a full-time occupation. I was just trying to make music for myself to escape to as much as anything. But self releasing an album forces you to pull yourself together and be productive."

 

Out of over 18,000 songs, three of Abbie's tracks from Pop[R.E.D.]have broken the Top Ten on Garageband.com's All-Time Alternative chart with both QuicksilverandHumble Pie going to #1 andLuvsik going to #9. Also, both QuicksilverandHumble Pie were distinguished as Tracks of the Week and Tracks of the Day. Huxley's reaction to all of this good news was, "It's important to me only because they base their charts on listener reviews." Garageband.com is an indie music site which boasts thirteen of its top ranking artists being signed to major labels and last year was named by Time Magazine as one of the 50 Best Websites. Abbie is currently touring in support of Pop[R.E.D.].  For more information, visit www.abbiehuxley.com.

"Pop[R.E.D.] could probably be categorized as an indie alt-pop record with emo influences, but unlike other albums that fall into this genre, Pop[R.E.D.] stretches past all the boundaries. This can sometimes be dangerous for an
artist...[they] often go too far, and turn into more of a circus show. Abbie Huxley will challenge all the limits but keep integrity at the same time"---Mat Wisner, The Daily Grind 

"Abbie Huxley's album, 'Pop[R.E.D.]', strikes a haunting and mournful chord...Huxley wails with about as much passion as one could possibly express...beautiful melodies with lyrics that will make you stop in your tracks..."---CD Baby

"It is a rare occurrence when an artist reaches out and takes the listener on a magnificent aural journey that completely satisfies the soul. Abbie Huxley is one of those rare individuals. Pop[R.E.D.] is nothing short of spectacular. It is almost impossible not to hit replay after each song."---Yer Mama's Guide to Internet Music

carrying the Buckley torch
If this is Abbie's 1st CD-release, then his future is bright indeed! Obvious J.Buckley characteristics, but with plenty of original elements. (At times, he also sounds like Andy Sturmer, from Jellyfish).

I hope Abbie makes it in this Mission Impossible Music Industry...good luck! I highly recommend this CD.

the prettiest star
I reviewed two tracks from this album on Garageband.com, and I just HAD to buy it. Elements of Jeff Buckley, elements of Freddie Mercury, but what this music really reminds me of (not quite sure why) is a great version of "The Prettiest Star" I heard once, by David Bowie, with Marc Bolan on guitar. One of my all-time favorite and most memorable songs, which I heard once over 20 years ago and never heard again. Abbie Huxley's work has a similar emotional impact. My only complaint is that the CD isn't a little longer.

amazing
Instead of buying the latest overpriced collection of Jeff Buckley's same few songs, pick up a copy of Pop [R.E.D.]. No, you won't regret it and yes, it is *that* good.

Beautiful voice echoes from the garage
I first heard Abbie's song Quicksilver on garageband.com back in January when it was number one on the alternative chart. I was captivated by the song immediately. It haunted my mind until July when I found myself on the garageband site again. This time, I had to indulge myself and buy the record. Abbie has a fantastic voice that drives every song on the record. My music collection is richer for having added Pop (R.E.D.) to my collection.

An incredible piece of work
From the moment the first note hits your ear you're hooked. The whole cd is stellar and all the songs have an unique sound. Whatever the subject is that Huxley is singing about his voice and words dig themselves into your soul and refuse to leave.

A rare and satisfying aural journey!
It is a rare ofccurance when an artist reaches out and takes the listener on a magnificant aural journey that completely satisfies the soul. Abbie Huxley is one of those rare individuals. His EP Pop[R.E.D.] is nothing short of spectacular. It is almost impossible not to hit replay after each song. Many are quick to draw comparisons
to Eliot Smith, Jeff Buckley and Freddie Mercury... but Abbie has his own voice and emotions. One bit of advice for Abbie... MORE PLEASE!!!

love of music 101

Humble Pie is amazing!!
I have always loved the song Humble Pie by A.Hux. I heard it performed many times and each time fell in love with the musicianship and amazing vocal lines. It was not until I bought the CD that I really heard the lyrics. I was amazed when I listened to the lyrics. It was almost like he wrote this song for me right now, though I know that it was written years ago. Could he have seen my future? Did he know I was going to be in pain one day...and would need to see my situation from the other person's point of view? It does not matter...it works for me.

The Legends of both Elliott Smith and Jeff Buckley Live On
I sample tracks from the top of the charts on garageband.com every now and then, and when I came upon Quicksilver, I just couldn't get enough of it. I listened to it ten times through, and bought the man's cd. Abbie has the vocals of Buckley, very chill Andres Segovia guitar riffs goin on, and just a great atmosphere from his tunes that soothes one's ears.

holly.

out-f'ing-standing.
this is one of the best cds i've bought in a long time. i never thought anyone's voice could compare to jeff buckley's, but i'm now eating my words... AND thoroughly enjoying this cd.

Butch

nothing short of amazing
this CD made me think of Jeff Buckley. He has the guitar work and vocals down so good. His writing is extraordinary as well. He has such feeling in his writing. I would fly in just to see this guys show.
