With their latest release, Broken Hearted Blue, Pacific Northwest-based garage-rockers-turned-two-steppers Jenny Don’t and The Spurs have turned in an album as bright and vibrant as their custom, rhinestone-encrusted stage outfits; each song possessing its own distinct charm while seamlessly upholding the LP’s western essence. Out now, Broken Hearted Blue perfectly blends the band’s origins with their more country and western influences. Two-step rhythms meet gritty fuzz tones and capture an evolved outlaw spirit at once nostalgic and pioneering.

More About Broken Hearted Blue: With their exciting new album, Broken Hearted Blue, Jenny Don’t and the Spurs—Jenny Don’t (vocals/guitar), Kelly Halliburton (bass), Christopher March (guitar), and Buddy Weeks (drums)—present ten dynamic songs that channel the essence of the Northwest’s music sounds while evoking the nostalgia of the Western frontier. Produced by Collin Hegna (Brian Jonestown Massacre, Federale), this album is a testament to Hegna's meticulous craftsmanship. With his guidance, Jenny Don’t and the Spurs have created a musical tapestry that highlights each member's talents.

“On this album, Kelly and I collaborated more closely than ever, shaping most of the musical parts together,” reflecting on their growth both as a couple and as a band. Jenny expresses, "We're just fed up with mainstream music's repetitive nature and the confines of genres. Each of us brings our own musical flavors to the table, emphasizing the importance of authenticity over conformity. Our music pulls from a variety of genres, which can be a bit tricky to define. But Collin really nailed it, capturing our blend of country, rock and roll, with that added touch of Western charm."

Broken Hearted Blue is a significant milestone, as it marks Buddy Weeks' debut on drums. The loss of longtime drummer Sam Henry (The Wipers, Poison Idea, Napalm Beach) to cancer in 2022 was a devastating blow that would have halted many bands. However, instead of slowing down, the Spurs intensified their touring and recording efforts, determined to honor Sam's legacy by forging ahead with their musical journey. The album track “Bones in the Sand” draws from that profound experience and the resilience found amidst it.
