While a taste for many styles of music is evident in Nashville-based band Ginger Cowgirl’s recent release, their approach is nevertheless rooted in the tradition of classic country brevity, wit and soul. Throw in some pedal steel, rockin' telecaster twang, worldly lyrics and front-woman Stacy Antonel’s eclectic, jazzy vocals, and you have a unique brand of Americana music.
The core of Ginger Cowgirl is California-born Antonel, a vocalist whose range and versatility allow her to sing rock, jazz, soul, pop and country with equal proficiency and passion. She’s a classically trained pianist from the age of 7, holds a degree from UC Berkeley, and got her start in the music industry singing jingles while living in Buenos Aires, Argentina. In 2013 she beat out hundreds of singers to win the $10,000 grand prize on Fox’s televised singing competition “3 Minutes to Stardom”.
In 2017 Antonel relocated to Nashville, TN. Ginger Cowgirl's debut EP was recorded at Nashville's Historic RCA Studio C and was released on June 7, 2019. The band is touring extensively in support of it, both at home and abroad. Band members include Steve Peavey (Don Williams, Johnny Mathis) and San Diego-based Sam Hunt, among others.
