ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Backseat Bordello is more than just a good time. It’s the official project name for the layered acoustic duo consisting of Danielle Egnew on Vocals / Guitar and Kristen Coyner on Vocals / Guitar, both founding members of power female band Pope Jane. The project was conceived by Coyner, who has spent the last 12 years behind the drums in Pope Jane and was searching for a more expressive outlet for her songwriting, as well as a home for the more folk-adjacent stylings in Egnew's catalogue.

Produced and mixed by Danielle Egnew, Backseat Bordello is founded on the signature vocal blend of both Egnew and Coyner set within an intimate setting of carefully woven and orchestrated guitar work by both artists, featuring acoustic slide and lead guitar by Egnew.

The eleven song debut CD “End Times Diner” is thoughtful and traveling, reflective of concerns surrounding twenty-first century living. The song “Dashboard Mary”, penned by Egnew, chronicles the last moments in a woman’s life during her own suicide: “And she cried to Dashboard Mary / Would she make way in the heavens for her kind”. The anthem “Rise Up”, written by Coyner, reaches out with a universal message of courage to oppressed peoples everywhere from an LGBT perspective: “You must rise up / You must speak out / You must be brave now / You must shout”.

Though thick with concepts, the album is also peppered with whimsical observations such as “Miraculous”, a lilting tune written by Egnew: “Looking up in the Hollywood Hills / She’s wearing hundred thousand dollar espadrilles / Stitched together in Chinese mills for a dime a pair, but the brand’s a thrill / It’s not miraculous/ It’s just the way it is”. And wrapping the feel of the album is “Blind”, the swampy, slide-heavy ode to obsession, authored by Coyner: “You've got me twisting and churning and tossing and turning tonight / Shaking and burning, and yearning but losing the fight / You’ve been dancing around in my head / I wish I was blind”.

As track eleven, Egnew and Coyner recorded a cultural favorite, Leonard Cohen’s “Hallelujah”, in one of the most emotive and vocally stunning arrangements to date, ending with a dynamic 32 track layered chorus of Hallelujah that features choral arrangements by Egnew.
