With lyrics carved out on a rural Georgia porch, Lo Carmen's sixth studio album Lovers Dreamers Fighters combines luminous observations on the mysteries of love with supernatural country. Bonnie ‘Prince’ Billy lends his iconic drawl to anthemic duet “Sometimes Its Hard” and the cream of Nashville's best players, who have accompanied the likes of Johnny Cash, Sturgill Simpson, Jason Isbell, Dan Auerbach, Lori McKenna, Lana Del Rey, Kacey Musgraves and Tony Joe White, bring the songs to life.
The 10-track collection is available now, digitally and on vinyl through Chiquita Records.

“divine… a real charmer… soaked in experience, in the kind of poetry that only comes from a life lived ”
— Clash Music
‘...an authenticity, sincerity and purity of purpose that harks back to the likes of Woody Guthrie. This is folk music. Or country, real country ...With characteristic grace and eloquence, LC reaches the parts other songwriters can’t touch.... I put her on the same pedestal as Kris Kristofferson, Tom T., or Merle Haggard.’
Something You Said
'perhaps the most sincere Americana record released in recent years' Culture Collide
'The album brings together sultry vintage soul and cosmic country sounds for something that is entirely unique. As a singer and songwriter, Carmen is simultaneously reflective and a storyteller... gorgeous twangy pedal steel, sensual vocals, haunting guitar and harmonies, and a drumbeat that conveys a quiet loneliness.' Glide Magazine
‘It’s hard for a song to strip one down to the bone, but that’s the power of music and the magic of Lo Carmen’ Atwood Magazine
‘one of the most distinctive Americana albums of the year…achingly atmospheric … you can’t fail to be swept off your feet’ Highway Queens
