Marketing Highlights

Pitchfork Reviews "Oklahoma" - "Dunphe relishes her role as a cautionary storyteller, a new addition to the cast of characters she plays across her projects, all the same." NPR Music Premieres "Love Letter" - "Dunphe takes the lead on "Love Letter," a snaggle-toothed truckin' song written to a long-lost love. With a little bit of Rolling Stones swagger, it channels Lucinda Williams' own particular strain of lonesome..." Impose Premiere of "Maria" - "...with warm, granular keys and hushed electric chords, Dunphe's lower, bountiful voice filling and cracks perceived by you perfectionists." The Autumn Roses Reviews "Love Letter" - "Deeply grooved, intelligently written and electrified by immediacy..." Post-Trash Premiere of "Walkin' Out" "...crackling and popping in just the right moments but remaining full of brilliant grit." Tiny Mix Tapes Premieres "Oklahoma - Many have tried; many more will. They'll take the stairs, run through that cornfield towards Hemingford, "Run down into the green hills / Oh take a Greyhound / You'll never survive in Oklahoma."

Vinyl Version features an etched design on the b-side.

About The County Liners

The County Liners started in Mary Jane Dunphe and Chris McDonnell's country home in Olympia, WA in the winter of 2016. Longtime friends and collaborators, Chris and Mary Jane began writing 80's/90's inspired country tunes when Mary Jane found herself bedridden with a debilitating ankle injury. Adding to the starkly naked approach of the record, the group reinvisioned lyrics from McDonnell's mother, Virginia Maurer, for the single “Love Letter.” Riley Kensington, also living with Dunphe and McDonnell, and Mirce Popovic joined the band to help arrange and perform the deeply personal songs for this five song EP. Recorded and mixed by Captain Tripps Ballsington, The County Liners debut is nothing short of heartbreaking.
