Roaring Colonel signs Cheyenne Marie Mize



The Indianapolis-based label Roaring Colonel Records announced this week that it has signed Louisville-based folk singer-songwriter Cheyenne Marie Mize, with plans to release her new EP, We Don’t Need, on Nov. 8. Mize, who collaborated with the Louisville legend Bonnie "Prince" Billy on a co-billed 2009 record of parlor songs, Among the Gold, recorded her first solo album, Before Lately, in 2010. The staff at NPR's All Songs Considered claimed Mize as one of their top SXSW discoveries this year, describing her as "very much in that Sharon Van Etten, smoky, pretty folk realm."

C. Dodge Lile, founder of Roaring Colonel Records, referred to Mize as an “incredible talent” and said he thrilled to have her aboard the label. “Cheyenne ties two cities I love tremendously together: Louisville, the town I was born and raised in, and Indianapolis, the city that is now my church,” Lile said via e-mail.

You can listen to the lead track from We Don’t Need, entitled “Wishing Well,” right here, or check out Mize’s Bandcamp page for more information and downloads. Mize's video debut, "Friend," from her first solo album, is below.
